Swimming Pool Built with Gunite & Concrete Paver Deck in Gulf Breeze

Gunite Pool Installation

Gunite kidny shaped swimming pool surrounded by beautiful concrete pavers.


Tom and Beth were ready to downsize. The kids were gone so they sold their home on Pensacola Beach and moved to Gulf Breeze Proper. The new home had everything they needed except a swimming pool. After interviewing other pool builders, Southern Poolscapes was brought in to remedy the situation. Like many lots on the interior of Gulf Breeze access was not ideal and ground water was certain to be a problem. Luckily, these are obstacles that Southern Poolscapes excels at overcoming. A vinyl swimming pool was considered but since Tom and Beth were going to live out their days in this home, they wanted something with better longevity and settled on a gunite pool.


We service Gulfport & Hattiesburg MS, Daphne, Spanish Fort, Fairhope & Orange Beach AL, and Gulf Breeze & Navarre FL and neighboring cities.

Swimming Pool Designs that Mirror Memories

This small kidney shape reflected the design of their first pool nearly three decades ago. It was the perfect size for them to float and lounge in with the hopes of sharing it with future grandchildren. Flagstone pavers were used for the decking that had color elements that accentuated the existing color scheme of the home. The paver deck increased their cost to that of a traditional concrete deck, but they wanted something with more character and the results were worth it. The beautiful blue tile reminded them of the water at the beach and the French gray diamond-brite plaster created a nice look and feel to their backyard.

Building a Pool Deck with Concrete Pavers

Concerned with the inherent issues of flagstone with a salt system the homeowner decided on a paver deck using concrete pavers to add character and aesthetics without the cost and maintenance of properly installed flagstone decking. The concrete pavers were also a better all-around decking solution because they do not create tripping hazards like natural flagstone.

Inground Pools Complete with Easy To Use Automation & Low Maintenance

Tom was concerned that the equipment would be too sophisticated compared to what he was used to using on his previous pool. We explained how you could remove backwashing with a cartridge filter, eliminate the need to do traditional shocking with an aqua-rite salt water chlorine generator, run the pool less but more efficiently with an Eco-star pump, and manipulate everything through one central controller. Tom says that this pool is the easiest and lowest maintenance pool he has owned.

Successful Pool Installations, Happy Clients

Tom certainly loves the low maintenance of the swimming pools, but Beth enjoys more time with Tom. They both were ecstatic with the project and looked forward to the memories made there with future grandchildren. Our goal is ecstatic clients through impeccable design and execution.
