Pool Coping

Choose the ideal pool coping can make a huge difference in the way your swimming pool looks. We provide some great information and an overview of the various coping options available for your inground pool.

WHAT IS POOL COPING?

The material used to cap the pool edge or shell wall is called Coping. There are many options available such as poured-in-place concrete, precast concrete, tile, and natural stone (pavers, flagstone, etc.).

Poured concrete coping

Using poured concrete coping allows the pool deck to be a single unit. Installers incorporate the coping right over the edge of the pool creating a seamless finish on the horizontal plane. This method make a small perimeter around the pool look alot bigger, and give the pool deck area a cleaner more symmetrical look.

Precast pool coping

Precast concrete coping is an ideal choice that offers a wide variety of textures, patterns, and colors. The cost for installation is typically lower cost than doing a poured concrete deck or natural stone. From an installers viewpoint, it is usually much simpler to install, and offers uniformity in thickness and color, in contrast to working with natural stone.

Natural stone coping

Natural stone or brick pavers are another coping solution that provide  texture, warmth and the sturdiness of stone. There are many materials to choose from ranging from granite, to fieldstone or even limestone. Let our experts help you explore long-lasting coping solutions.

Interlocking Patios

Interlocking patios are very popular these days. They provide a fast and professional decking solution. Most interlocking patios are commonly made from cement or concrete, and tend to simulate the effects of cobblestone pathways.

This special interlocking feature enables pavers to be easily installed without the use of mortar. Interlocking pavers have the advantage of being an easy self-installation paving material for the homeowner or contractor. Interlocking pavers connect together through the use of sand, and can cover any patio, decking, driveway or walkway. Interlocking pavers is an alternative to. virtually any application that you would normally use bricks or concrete for.

Interlocking pavers are available in many colors and designs. They are modular, meaning that they connect together to form a variety of geometric designs. Let a Your Backyard Haven specialist guide you through the products best suited for your particular backyard remodeling project. We can provide cost effective solutions and suggestions to help you achieve the optimum look you are going for.

Retaining Walls

Pool Retaining Walls

Most yards aren’t perfectly flat. In fact in Ontario, very few backyards are 100% level. Most backyards in our region have a grade (usually 2 ft. or less). When constructing your inground pool we can grade the dirt off the patio to compensate for the difference.

However, not every situation is so simple. When you have a big slope, you need an experienced backyard remodeling expert that knows how to think around corners. How will you keep the water from running onto the pool deck? How will you keep the pool in place?

A retaining wall fills in any blank space on the low end and holds up any soil on the high end. With dramatic declines, the wall is obvious. When there isn’t a huge hill, the retaining wall might end up looking like a decorative bench—until you walk around to its other side and see that it holds the patio up higher than the ground. Your Backyard Haven is experienced and has the professional know-how to construct retaining walls in your backyard. Ask about our construction services when getting a pool estimate from us.

Fire & Water Features

Fire Pit Installation

With a fire element, you can fulfill your outdoor entertainment needs in a number of ways, from sunken fire pits to traditional custom stone work. We can build custom stonework to contain your fire element, whether it’s a fire bowl, table, or insert, at Your Backyard Haven.

If you use your fire feature to grill food in the summer or simply to create ambiance, the type of fire feature you select reflects your personality. For modern patios, recessed fire pits are perfect, ideally with no kids running around. A stacked stone fireplace is a rustic, child-friendly addition to any patio, or maybe even a four-unit table-top pit that displays your modern taste.

Water features, which range from waterfalls to decorative ponds, are a soothing and calming addition to any backyard. They not only look amazing, they sound even better, adding to the relaxed nature of the place. Water features, depending on how elaborate you choose to go, serve as a focal point and, in the case of ponds, can also attract wildlife.

Your water feature can also go beyond practical and double as an art piece. With a water feature that features varying amounts of water pouring over a brick wall, covering the patio, flowing under a decorative bridge and emptying into a fish pond, you can get really intricate.

Outdoor Kitchens
