Rock Work

We will create stone finishes and natural color combinations to compliment surrounding architecture or native landscapes. Special features like waterfalls, grottos, beach entries, reef steps (sometimes called Baja steps), toddler splash pools, slides, and diving rocks can be easily incorporated and specifically tailored to your backyard, your style preferences, and your family's needs. Relax to the rush of fast moving water or to the trickling sounds of gentle sloping falls,we will help you achieve the waterfall of your dreams. Kids and adults enjoy the thrill of a pool slide that is incorporated into the natural rock design of your pool.


orange county swimming pool with rock work, also includes 3 waterfalls, a slide, and a grotto.

One, two, even three or more...we will incorporate as many waterfalls as your tropical dream demands. And your grotto/waterfall can do double duty as a diving platform.

Reef steps and beach entries are all the rage...great for younger children and popular for placing chaise lounges in and basking in the warm sun.

A grotto behind your waterfall creates a great focal point for your pool and the perfect place to sit and take a tranquil break. Diving into the pool can be great fun, but a diving board can ruin the look of a pool and it's landscaping. We can help you find the perfect place to include a diving rock so you don't have to miss out on the fun.

Creative Ideas

  • Rock "bench" seating has become the most popular way to bring the design of your new rock pool out into the rest of your yard. We can even incorporate openings for outdoor sound system speakers.
  • Don't forget the dog! Turn your pet's ordinary shelter into an attractive part of your new backyard design with a rock dog house/cave.
  • Pool decks designed to compliment the design of the pool.
  • Underwater shelves provide resting places and alternative pool entries/exits
  • From rocks to boulders, we can create natural formations in all shapes, sizes and colors
  • The perfect balance of rock and water, natural spillways and falls, attractive even when the water isn't running
