The benefits of using natural stone for the making of swimming pools

Apart from being a place where you can enjoy swimming and relaxation, the swimming pool is a central part of your exterior design.  By using natural stone to make it, you will bring the natural charm of Mother Nature to your garden. You can use the natural stones from Valmarg Stone to build benches, as well as tables by the poolside in order to create a perfect finish to your outdoor relaxation space.

Natural stone is not only beautiful but it is a very durable and strong material which makes it perfect for building a swimming pool.

Apart from that, with natural stone you can create a unique original design which will make your swimming pool one of a kind.

  1. Natural stone from Valmarg Stone for building swimming pools and the poolside areas

You can use polygonal slates or cut stones  both for making the swimming pool as well as to make the benches and tables around it.  The polygonal slates have a natural form and can be more difficult to use for the swimming pools, but the cut stone is very suitable for the cladding of the pool.

The polygonal stones can be used for making the tables and benches for the poolside area. Combined with a stone path leading from your home to the pool, this special outdoor area will bring a rustic and antique look to your outdoor space.

  1. The shape of the swimming pool

The shape you choose for your swimming pool depends on the space you have available. Even the smallest space can be used for building a swimming pool. The shape does not need to be necessarily rectangular. Depending on the space available, and your own personal taste, you can make a triangle or oval swimming pool instead. The non-traditional shape will make your pool and the area around it even more original and unique.

For an even more naturalistic touch, you can add some streams which flow into the pool, or with a small fountain.
