This picture was taken in the early fall and Autumn Brilliance were changing color. The other trees are multi stem crapes, I'd have to go back to the landscape plan to verify.

Is this an Overflow type pool (couldn't figure out from the pic - but will be surprised if it weren't)? Did you design the electro-mechnical payout also?

Not familiar with "overflow pool" if you mean infinity edge the answer is no.

I think instead of an overflow pool, this cool effect is just a simple line waterfall. You can see a bunch of types here:

Here's another example on Houzz:

If you're looking for an example of an overflow pool (not an infinity edge), look at this cool multi-level pool:
