A lot more than just water goes into a pool. Ask anyone who’s ever bought one. It’s about the landscaping, the patio, the outdoor kitchen, outdoor lights; it’s about the whole coming together into an amazing outdoor space. That’s if you’re thinking about residential pools like this, and you’ll need to work with an industry leader like B&B Pool and Spa Center to get it. But if you’re thinking about once-in-a lifetime pool experiences, then it’s about world-class, panoramic views, infinite aqua vistas, soaring heights, and maybe even a little wildlife…
