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. Landscaping is in progress and custom designed and fabricated wrought iron railings are in production. That is definitely a space re-imagined!
While there are many ways to construct a pool or spa, Landfare Ltd. custom builds to the highest standards to ensure their projects look beautiful, function perfectly and are safe for you and your family.
Extensive Training Ensures Quality For Clients
Landfare Ltd. staff have completed numerous training courses through The Association of Pool & Spa Professionals, receiving a Home Improvement Contractor (HIC) License for building swimming pools. This is not a requirement in Ohio but does reflect Landfare Ltd.’s professional approach to all their projects. To build the best you must have a team of highly trained professionals, and Landfare Ltd. invests in the training and education of our staff to offer only the best to our clients.
A pool may look very nice when completed but the quality and integrity are built underneath the pool. After digging the hole for the pool, we install a steel rebar floor before pouring concrete. These extra steps create a pool structure that will not shift due to hydrostatic pressure. Not all pool companies do that, but we know that our clients expect us to provide the best product, and we do.
Poured concrete walls are 12” thick and finished with Diamond Brite® plaster. Available in many aggregate finishes, this plaster lets us determine the color, brilliance and reflective properties of the pool water. Again, we select every finish to meet the design standards needed to enhance the entire landscape and outdoor living spaces for each home.

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.
Planning the perfect outdoor entertaining area is a collaborative effort between the Landfare Ltd. design team and our clients. With so many details and options available, we want to be sure to customize the design to each clients lifestyle and needs.
For this active family, a multi-purpose pool and entertaining area were a must. The pool is setup for both swimming laps and energetic play from the kids in the family, including basketball hoop and diving board. Gysers spout under the pool umbrella to offer everyone a refreshing spray.
Walkways and entertaining spaces are made from cut limestone surrounded by illuminated hornbeam trees. French doors lead to a secluded patio for adult relaxation, including TV and settee seating. Optic fiber lighting under the patio coping makes this a wonderful spot to enjoy the evening.
Every detail – every material selected – is meticulously planned. Our build team executes it all perfectly. We want every client to say “this is exactly what we want.”
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.
Many of our clients ask us to design and build complete outdoor living and entertaining spaces: patios, pergolas, water features, outdoor kitchens, fireplaces and, of course, gardens, planting beds and lush landscape. For many clients, a swimming pool, pool house and water play area fit in naturally with our designs and the client’s wish list. In the past, we worked with our sister company, Blu Pools & Spas, to design and build swimming pools for our clients.
In order to give our clients seamless service, Landfare Ltd. has recently acquired Blu Pools & Spas. The same design/build team will be working with Landfare Ltd. so existing clients will see no difference in the service they receive.
We are excited about this wonderful opportunity to continue giving our clients the highest level of service as we create the outdoor living areas of their dreams.
