Ocean Blu Pools & Spas



The owners of this exquisite 7m x 3m swimming pool initially wanted a functional outdoor space that could double as an entertainer’s haven, while still being a stand-out feature of the property. Built by Ocean Blu Pools & Spas, the pool includes a striking negative-edge and is illuminated with five gorgeous LED lights, which creates a stunning atmosphere as the sun goes down.

Surfaced in duraquartz plaster and tiled in stunning mosaic tiles, the pool comes complete with state-of-the-art technology and has an 8-star energy rating. Ocean Blu Pools & Spas ensured maintenance was kept at an all-time low for the homeowners by integrating a variable-speed pump, Haywood heating pump, automatic leveller and a salt water chlorinator.

Prior to construction of the pool, Ocean Blu Pools & Spas needed to consider the property’s relatively small block and challenging site conditions. The pool needed to be dug out by hand and elevated one metre off the ground, which maximised space within the backyard. The homeowners also wanted to include an existing frangipani plant in the final design of the backyard, so Ocean Blu Pools & Spas positioned the swimming pool close to the plant to create a Balinese-inspired atmosphere.

Ocean Blu Pools & Spas is a pioneer in custom concrete pool design and construction, and specialises in all types of residential and commercial concrete pools, including plunge pools, lap pools, infinity-edge pools and family-friendly pools. Servicing discerning clientele all over Western Australia, Ocean Blu Pools & Spas builds 50–100 pools annually, and the company prides itself on always providing quality service.

Michael Adams and Jason Lardi have each been in the industry for 15 years. They established Ocean Blu Pools & Spas in 2014, bringing their wealth of knowledge and experience to clients wanting to transform their backyards into a paradise. From sales to construction, when you deal with Adams and Lardi, you are guaranteed peace of mind, professionalism and effortless communication.

Whether the team at Ocean Blu Pools & Spas are building for homeowners, builders or commercial entities, their level of professionalism and outstanding work ethic is evident in every single project.

Oasis Pools



Built by Oasis Pools, this 7m x 3.5m out-of-ground concrete pool offers stunning views over the picturesque canal waters. The owners of the property wanted a pool that was self-supporting and maximised space, and Oasis Pools achieved this by building the pool on the upper floor of the house. The pool was built above the existing paving, which meant that it required minimal space because no extra retaining walls were required.

Owner of Oasis Pools, Gil Howard worked closely with his team to design and arrange construction of this stunning pool.

The finished space is a family-friendly pool that provides the owners of the home with stunning water views from every angle.

The pool is surfaced in Duraquartz Ice Blue plaster, and the surrounding paving was provided by Australis Pavers. Oasis Pools removed some of the existing retaining walls and went to great lengths to ensure the pool could be built in the limited space available.

Oasis Pools found it difficult to gain access to the area, as it was only accessible through an 800mm door that was located at the rear of the property’s garage. This meant that all earthworks and construction materials were carried through this small space.

The pool area is fenced off with chic glass fencing, which was provided by GR8 Glass Pool Fencing, and gives the pool an elegant touch.

Featuring state-of-the-art filtration equipment, including a large CS250 cartridge filter, a Zodiac flo pro pump, and Zodiac Z300 MD8 electric heating, the pool is equipped with some of the finest products on the market.

The pool also features clear Spa Electrics WN950 underwater lighting, which creates a beautiful, iridescent glow in the water.

Howard is the owner and pool designer for Oasis Pools, and maintains a reputation for offering his clients quality concrete pools in unusual locations.

Concrete pools can be created in any shape and size to suit varying site conditions, including odd-shaped blocks, steep and sloping blocks, small spaces and any other challenging areas.

Oasis Pools is an expert in projects that present logistical and access difficulties, and Howard offers his clients exceptional design, construction knowledge and experience. Whether you have a simple site, or a challenging block that many designers would shy away from, Howard can always rise to the challenge.

The company builds approximately ten to 15 pools per year, and prides itself on its ability to create masterpieces in even the most difficult sites.

Particular design features such as infinity-edges are all easily achievable for Oasis Pools, and the company can help you every step of the way to ensure you’re left with the perfect pool for your property.

Add A Splash Pools



The previous owners of this Nedlands property had filled the concrete pool with sand and used it as a garden. Wanting their family to be able to get maximum enjoyment from their outdoor space, the new homeowners presented Add A Splash Pools with the challenge of bringing the pool back to a useable condition.

Badly deteriorated, the walls of the concrete shell were repaired and an Aqualux vinyl liner in ‘Pacific’ was installed, giving the pool a durable, smooth and low-maintenance interior finish.

New equipment was added, including an AstralPool Viron variable speed pump and a Hurlcon self-cleaning chlorinator. The pool has also been fitted with solar heating and multi-coloured underwater LED lighting.

The rejuvenated pool is complemented by Freo Stone limestone bullnose headers in ‘Ice’, which are surrounded by poured limestone. The finishing touch to the transformed space was the installation of fully frameless glass fencing by Manhattan Fencing.

Add A Splash pools is a family-owned business that has been operating since 1989. As well as building up to 30 new pools, the team also renovates up to 50 existing pools each year.

Using superior quality pool equipment and liners constructed from heavy-duty vinyl in a wide variety of colour choices, Add A Splash Pools offers innovative design and construction to complete any pool renovation.

In addition to installing new vinyl liners, Add A Splash Pools can also transform existing concrete pools by changing the shape or adding extra steps and seating areas.

After winning a gold and two silver awards at the Swimming Pool and Spa Association of Western Australia (SPASA WA) 2014 Awards of Excellence, Add A Splash Pools went on to win a silver award at the inaugural national awards, capping off an exciting year in construction and renovating.

All Seasons Synthetic Turf



Synthetic turf has grown in popularity in recent years because it allows homeowners to possess a luscious-looking, low-maintenance lawn that stays green year-round.

In the past, the surface temperature of synthetic turf was always a concern. While synthetic grass stays green in dry climates, during summer it can get quite hot. To combat this, All Seasons Synthetic Turf has introduced HydroChillTM. HydroChillTM can reduce the surface temperature of synthetic grass by approximately 28 degrees and uses moisture from water or dew to stay cool for up to four days.

All Seasons Synthetic Turf works very closely with its highly-regarded Australian manufacturer and invests considerable time and money into research and development. All of the company’s turfs are exclusive to All Seasons Synthetic Turf, Australian-made using APT Australian yarns, and are free from heavy metals and harmful toxins, which makes them safe for children and pets.

The company’s CoolPlus range is 30 per cent cooler than other turfs on the market and is soft underfoot. Whether you have a balcony, front or backyard, pool area, children’s play area or even a putting green, this natural-looking turf will be the perfect addition to your lifestyle.

All Seasons Synthetic Turf is a family-owned business that proudly stands by the quality of its product and offers a ten-year warranty to give you that extra peace of mind. It services all Perth metropolitan suburbs and provides first- class customer service.

After an initial consultation, the highly-trained and professional team will measure the proposed area and prepare the site with your choice of synthetic turf. Once the turf is installed, the team will conclude with a final check-up to ensure you are happy with your new lawn.

All Seasons Synthetic Turf has a wide range of products to suit every application and budget, so visit the website for showroom and display centre locations.
