A swimming pool is already a pretty great place to be. Add a few luxury pool features and it becomes a vacation-worthy hangout so fabulous you’ll never want to leave.

You might want to invest in a few more swimsuits.

Pool features once found only at high-end resorts are making their way onto the home pool scene, from stunning perimeter overflow to exotic fire features.

Let’s take a look at a few of the coolest swimming pool features to consider.

Perimeter Overflow

The ultimate “how did they do that?” pool water feature, perimeter overflow offers a stunning feature. The water’s surface looks like a flat sheet of glass and appears to be perfectly contained — without walls.

In perimeter overflow, the pool water overflows its edges and flows into a hidden slot or catch basin where it’s then recycled back into the pool.

It’s similar to an infinity edge pool, but with a perimeter overflow, the infinity pool’s water overflows on all four sides.

It’s hard to stop staring.


Caves And Grotto’s

Caves and swimming pool grottos create an alluring sense of mystery in luxurious inground pools. Secluded, enchanting, they lure both kids and grown-ups with potential for adventure — without leaving the yard.

Surrounded by waterfalls, colored lights and more, caves offer a unique space for lounging and cooling off in the shade.

A cave can be extravagant, with multiple rooms and swim-up bars. A grotto can be cozy, an intimate spot nestled behind a waterfall.

Add a hot tub to your grotto. Incorporate an outdoor kitchen in your cave.

You’re only limited by your imagination.

Fire Features

The hottest outdoor features from Neave Masonry include captivating outdoor fire pits and add a spectacular wow factor to a modern pool area.

Glowing fire pits and fire bowls. Blazing tiki torches. Fire troughs.

Fire adds a sense of the exotic, as well as a striking visual as the dancing flames reflect off the water’s surface.

Fire adds drama, but it adds function, too, adding extra light when you’re entertaining or just enjoying the pool yourself at night.

Flame is mesmerizing and helps transform your poolside into a resort-style gathering place after sundown.

Have your fire features installed with a handy remote control — excitement with the push of a button.

Automatic Covers

Even the smallest debris falling into your swimming pool can lead to liner tears, water imbalances or damage that could be expensive — and a nuisance — to repair.

The most luxurious cover is automatic — no cranking a wheel to put it in place.

Simply flip a switch or press a button. Your pool is ready to enjoy or closed up tight in less than a minute. The cover is concealed within an integrated housing when the pool is in use.

Automatic safety covers create a barrier over your pool to keep children and pets safe.

Viewing Panels

Yes, you can add underwater windows to your swimming pool. Or create one whole wall of your pool from a see-through acrylic panel.

These viewing panels allow natural light to flow into your pool.

Plus, it’s fun to watch people splashing around, aquarium-style.

Laminar Jets

The clear arcs of water by day transform into an impressive colorful light display at night. Multiple jets can be combined and synchronized for a dazzling light show you control.

You could almost charge admission.

I just want to let you know how happy we are with our lawn renovation. Even though we had been using a commercial lawn care company to fertilize and control weeds, our lawn had been steadily deteriorating. The grass would respond following a fertilization, but it never really thrived. We called Neave last September, they sent Mario to analyze the problems we were having, and he made several suggestions. In addition to a weed preventative and slow acting fertilizer, he highly recommended aerat… Read more
