“We are delighted with our new pool. The landscape design and planting scheme create the soft and natural setting that we were hoping to achieve. George and the Urban Earth team worked hard to deliver our project on time with skill and positivity. They were a pleasure to have on site.”

- Alison, East Devon

 

The introduction to Urban Earth was made via the client. The plan for how the pool sits within the landscape is always a huge factor in the overall aesthetics and getting the right people appointed to harmoniously and sympathetically dress the pool into an existing, period property is never easy. From the outset, Influences and themes ranging from old English rose gardens to more contemporary Mediterranean were discussed and the feeling of elasticity within the scope to allow development throughout the design period and even onsite was always evident. The design collaboration between Clear water revivals, Roberto Trappaso and Martin Skuse of Urban Earth allowed both teams to fully understand where responsibilities lay meaning the project was delivered on time.  Considering it was a first for UE to incorporate a pool and provide all relevant services to the plant room, the interrogation and strategy for success was unparalleled and even delivered a living roof – a first for one of our plantrooms!

Tricky site to work on through small, listed pair of front gates for pool excavations, (Grab lorries grabbing over listed walls expertly)  also with an archaeological survey taking place at time of pool dig out due to location and history of the property, all very exciting and enjoyable to be part of as a collective.

Full swimming pool installation by us alongside Clear Water Revival Pools Bristol, Millboard decking surround, with Oak sleeper edgings + steps to naturalise and soften, with our aim of trying to make the pool as unnoticeable as possible till you are practically right on top of it.

Full planting plans and plants all planted, with pebbles in flower beds as property on the Jurassic coast, with Japanese style natural slate stepping stones skipping their way across the front of a bespoke water feature from Devon slate and paddle stones to make it seem as if water feature is filling up swimming pool.
