Fall is in full swing and it’s beautiful weather here in Arizona. While we believe enjoying outside should be a year round activity, fall is the perfect season to go outside with family and friends if you prefer the cooler weather over the summer sun. With the kids in school and all sorts of activities going on from sports, to family gatherings and school events, and everything in between it is easy to get home, sit on the couch, plug into technology and call it relaxing. Here at Shasta we believe that spending time in a beautiful backyard is the best way to relax and we encourage you to log off, shut down, and go outside to enjoy beautiful Arizona with your family and friends.

Enjoying being unplugged and outside is best from your very own backyard. With an outdoor living space you can have everything you need available just past your backdoor. If you are looking to create the perfect outdoor living space take a look at some of our favorite pool and outdoor living features that you can enjoy year round!

Cascading Water Features

Nothing says rest and relaxation quite like the sound of bubbling water. If you are looking for design elements that incorporate your pool in the complete ambiance of your backyard feel a cascading water feature is the feature for you. There are so many options to choose from, from one sleek clean sheet of water bubbling into your pool to multiple layers and sizes, we can help you find the perfect cascading water feature for your pool design. Here are three water feature designs we love:

  • Natural Rock Waterfall – This is a good design to add to your new pool if you are planning a look to match your pool to the Arizona beauty around you. While you may not be able to play in it through the colder months it is a nice focal point to enjoy while you unplug from technology and recharge on life.
  • Classic Cascade – Staying with a classic sheet of water design on your new pool can give you a timeless look you can enjoy for years to come. If you go with a geometric design, choose one side of the pool and have a classic cascade the going down the entire length for a nice modern look.
  • Multi-level Cascade – Add a few levels to your pool design to create a fun and intricate look. Add different changing LED lights to the different layers to provide your family with a fun water and lights show whenever you spend time together.

If you’re ready to have a space to retreat to when you log off, shut down and go outside, contact Shasta today and don’t forget to ask your designer about our specials!
