Ezy Living Pools

STRATEGIC YET STYLISH

AN IDEAL FAMILY SPACE

Maximising backyard space was paramount when designing this 7.5m x 4m pool. ezy living Pools worked closely with the homeowners throughout the entire design and production process to ensure the small backyard was taken into careful consideration. By adding a retaining wall to the area, ezy living Pools was able to tactically build the pool, while ensuring the yard was not adversely affected.

The pool boasts a unique feel and setting with the use of natural stone, which also perfectly complements the home and outdoor area. The raised decking provides the home with different contrasts of elevation, as well as an outdoor entertaining zone, which is perfect for year-round entertaining.

The finished result is a strategically-designed project that fits flawlessly into a relatively small backyard space.

The owners of this home were after the largest pool possible, while still allowing for some backyard space. The checklist for this project included a large pool that could provide relaxation for the family, while also complementing the home and its outdoor surroundings. The decking is a perfect rejuvenation area for the parents, which is complete with an umbrella, a table and chairs. The kids can be entertained for hours by jumping off the pavement and into the pool.

Ezy living Pools had to pay close attention to the property’s sloping block when building the pool, to ensure the tight space was fully utilised. By building the pool to one side of the yard, the house, decking and the garden were left separate to the pool on the opposite side. This was another tactic to maximise space in the backyard, while still following the client’s brief. ezy living Pools widened the original back decking and used frameless glass fencing to help integrate the space and revamp the entire outdoor area.

The pool features an energy-saving Astral Pool Viron P320 eVo pump, which uses less energy when set to a low speed and also lowers the pool’s flow rate. A lower flow rate takes immense pressure off the pool’s plumbing and can increase the pool’s service life and reduce further costs. The homeowners are also able to enjoy the pool year-round with Australian energy systems nanotek solar heating, which is 40 per cent more efficient than other standard products.

Ezy living Pools specialises in both in-ground and out-of-ground concrete pools and spas. The company also renovates concrete pools, and custom designs pools to suit a client’s backyard and house.

ian and Clint Hillhouse started the company eight years ago, but have 29 years of pool design and construction experience between the two of them. ezy living Pools is based in the greater Brisbane and bayside areas, and builds approximately 30 new pools per year, as well as completing extra renovation work on existing pools.
