Building The Foundation For An In-ground Pool

The Landfare Ltd. team builds in-ground swimming pools and spas throughout the year. In fact, building during the winter months ensures you will be enjoying your pool when the weather warms up.

Here you see the team, under a protective tent covering, install steel rebar used as reinforcement before concrete is poured. Because steel rebar can be bent we can design curves, angles and even steps to enhance your swimming pool.

The grid pattern is carefully calculated and installed, and tied or held in place to make sure there is no vibration or movement when the gunite (concrete) is poured. Gunite is projected at a pretty high velocity, and any movement in the grid pattern could effect the stability of the pool bottom.

The design and construction of your pool is part science, part engineering and a lot of hard work by our team of professionals.

Is A Plunge Pool Right For You?

Whether you have a large outdoor area or a smaller backyard, a plunge pool may be the best solution in creating your outdoor oasis. Plunge pools are the smaller more compact version of a custom in-ground pool. Even with their smaller size, they can still offer you the opportunity to enjoy a leisurely lap or cooling floating experience.

Landfare Ltd. will design your customized plunge pool so you get exactly what you want. That could be a pool that is 5 or 7 feet deep or only 3 or 4 feet deep. One that includes bubblers and is heated for year ’round enjoyment. Maybe an in pool seating area to cool you on hot summer days and custom lighting for evening enjoyment. We will create a pool surround that marries beautifully with your home’s design and outdoor entertaining areas. The options are unlimited!

Outdoor Kitchens Make Summer Dining A Breeze

Perfect For A Grilling Master

No outdoor entertaining area is complete without its own kitchen. Landfare Ltd. custom designs and builds full service outdoor kitchens. Of course there is a grill, sometimes two. But why stop there? Include a sink, mini-frig, ice maker, cooling drawers, trash container, and storage cabinets to make your outdoor kitchen fully functioning.

You won’t need to step into the house for a thing!

Luxury Pool House

Our client asked us to build a pool house for their new pool that our team is building. We discussed how they planned to use the pool house, what their family and guests might want, and then we got to work. This new structure is about 2000 SF with glass doors the fully open to the outside. It features a kitchen, bar area, great room with fireplace, laundry and heated floor. An amazing entertaining space!

Luxury Pool, A Must Have

The pool for this family is as luxurious as the pool house. This 18′ x 36′ in-ground pool will be surrounded by stonework that marries with the main house. Heated with salt water, it can be used throughout the year for entertaining and exercise.

Landfare Ltd. creates one-of-a-kind outdoor entertaining areas that enhance our client’s lives. See more of our pools and spas here.

Outdoor Living Spaces Re-imagined

When a client asks us to re-imagine their outdoor entertaining spaces, we dig deep and create something out of nothing. For this space, we dug six feet below the existing ground level, created a terrace, installed a swimming pool, replaced the existing window with French doors, matched the home’s limestone brickwork, built a surrounding limestone walls for privacy and built a stairway from the new upper terrace to the lower terrace.  That is definitely a space re-imagined!

Pools That Can Be Enjoyed Throughout The Year

There is nothing more refreshing on a hot summer day than cooling off in a beautiful swimming pool, but it can be just as relaxing in the winter! For many homeowners, a swimming pool and spa are an important part of their year ‘round outdoor entertaining plans. Creating a custom pool and spa worthy of discerning clients requires both design creativity and building expertise. Landfare Ltd. brings both to every project.

While there are many ways to consider a pool project, Landfare Ltd. has a very specific approach to ensure that all outdoor living spaces are designed to enhance the home’s architecture and provide the functionality homeowners want. All Landfare Ltd. designs reflect the company motto: Capturing Nature Through Timeless Design™.

It Begins With A Detailed Plan

Before construction begins, we meet with our clients to discuss their vision and dream list. Together we determine how they will most often use the pool, spa and surrounding areas: sports activities (like pool volleyball), leisure activities or active swimming and diving. These, along with space allocation and budget, help guide our design recommendations.

New Spa

Creating an outdoor entertaining area for a client can be a multi-layered process. For this client, we are enhancing their backyard with a new spa area. Adjacent to the pool we built previously, we are adding lower terraced platforms to access the spa, which is currently under construction. Forms have been built and concrete poured to prepare the walkways for stone. Executing a well-designed custom landscape is a process that can take several years. We are happy to work with clients to make their vision a reality.

Quiet Pride™

Landfare Ltd. has a definite vision for the outdoor living spaces we design for our clients. Part of that vision is that all of our work must enhance the esthetic of each client’s home. Our designs and all the elements we incorporate – water features, pools, spas, landscape – all work together to project the pride our clients have for their homes. We never create trendy or ostentatious designs that conflict with the home’s architecture and property.

While discussing this vision as a team, we agreed that we really project Quiet Pride™ in both our clients’ homes and our own work.

Deck Your Halls With Gorgeous Holiday Decor

Creating the right ambiance for your home during the holidays takes planning, patience, attention to all the details and, in many instances, a team of professionals to execute the plan. Designing outdoor and indoor holiday decor is one way to share the spirit of the holidays with family and friends. Our designers meet with you to determine the overall theme of your design, preferred colors and if you would like to include iconic holiday symbols, like reindeer, bells or angels.

Lighting Your Outdoor Spaces

First the Landfare Ltd. team evaluates the trees in your yard, their position and limb structure. The focus is on the trees because they are the base for all lighting. We design and overall plan to light trees, doorways and other structures on your property.

We use only LED bulbs to create brightness and holiday magic. Depending on the design, we select white or colored bulbs. We especially like the icy brilliance of blue bulbs in a winter landscape. Tree limbs are wrapped with strings of bulbs – we never use netting. After the holiday season, we remove all lights and store them for the next year.

Entrances can be lit with bulbs or with indirect lighting. We custom create swags and wreaths that match back to your design as well as bountiful seasonal urns.

Indoor Design

It is important to create the perfect holiday effect for your home. From outdoor lighting and decor to holiday decor in the rooms of your home, we want to create a feeling of wonder and holiday peace. The design theme we use on the exterior of your home is brought inside. Here is where details are critical – each piece plays a part in creating the ambiance you want for your family and guests.

Vaulted ceilings beg for massive Christmas trees, and our team has the equipment needed to perfectly execute our design plan.  Mantels, stairways and tabletops are used to bring your holiday theme to life.
