Pools Inspired By Nature

Your backyard doesn’t have to be a concrete jungle – with a little thought and planning, it can resemble a naturally-occurring haven. Lara Bailey explores the ways to craft an outdoor space that reflects the beauty of nature.

While sleek outdoor spaces with infinity-edge pools and feature-packed kitchens may be the design du jour, embracing an aesthetic at the other end of the scale can be equally appealing. If you like your designs down to earth, creating an outdoor space that mimics the natural environment could be the right choice for you.

A natural-looking outdoor space can be created a number of ways, from a non-linear pool andan earthy palette through to abundant foliage and the inclusion of rock and trickling water.

To help you get started, check out Melbourne Pool + Outdoor Design’s guide to creating an outdoor space that looks like it was crafted by Mother Nature herself:
