Hi and thanks for your question.

There are so many factors that change how much maintenance is required like the direction the deck faces and where the main access point to the pool is along with how high your fascia board sits from waterline.

In most cases we would recommend staining the decks once a year and the fascia board twice. We use Intergrain or Cutek timber stains for ongoing maintenance.

Hi.

Thanks for your kind words

The site is 630m2 and there is approximately 8 meters between the fence line and the house.

Hope this helps.

Love the layout of this backyard. What is the depth of the pool? thx

Thanks for the kind words. It's 1200mm shallow end, 1400mm far end & 1800mm for the deepest point. We use these depths across most of our pools as it allows standing at both ends making the pool multipurpose.

Are you in Melbourne? If so call us. It's what we do. You could also call any pool builder? try Aloha Pools, Serenity Pools or Elite Pools.

Running bamboo is a disaster waiting to happen! It will haunt your house, your neighbours and those who buy your house later. Don't try planting it!
Clumping bamboo is a different story - it doesn't have issues of the running bamboo.
Another issue with bamboo - a lot of bamboo species drop leaves throughout the year and you may not like additional maintenance for your pool

All of our pools have in-floor cleaning and therefor clean themselves. The leaf litter isn't a problem in most cases.

Which is the most effective product to protect the wood from the splash water of the pool that contains chlorides...?

We use either an Intergrain or Cutek oil stain but there is no product that will fully protect the timber from the harsh water.

It doesn't look like it in this photo but there is actually about 500mm between the pool and the hedge. There is enough room to walk along with some hedge trimmers.

Its very close to the colour you see. The tiles are plain white which gives the light crisp blue colour. Here's a link to the same pool during the day with no lights on.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Steven Corley Randel, Architect added this to Solstice Daydream Break: 10 Breathtaking Swimming Pools
Limited space. The small size of this pool area creates a nice sense of intimacy, which makes this space even more inviting. Consider that you really need only one way into the water. The dense hedge acts as a border and helps to define this as an outdoor room.An outdoor shower backed by a contrasting colored tile wall at the far end is reflected in the detail for the fountain at center right within the pool. The remaining bright white pool tiles let the water take on the soothing aqua color with which swimming pools are associated.
