    Looking for ideas - Toronto

    Our new home will be built over the next few months and we are looking for ideas for an in-ground pool, BBQ area, Pool house and landscaping.

    The lot that we have purchased is 50ft wide by 233ft deep so we have enough space

    Need help with:

    1. What shape of pool to go with..
    2. What type of lanscaping?
    3. What is a rough estimate how much I should budget?

    Here is what the house will look like from the front:

    Thanks. Will check those out.

    Also - what type of pool should I go with? Chlorine? Salt? Liner? Gunite??

    With the style of home you are showing, you can't go wrong with a gunite pool. I would stay with the "rocky" or (olde english looking) theme and try to emcompass that in my coping and decking. That's if you are going to use that stone siding on your home. I have seen several waterfalls on the slide show built from rock and even slides placed on a rock structure. Guess it will all come down to your pool budget. It can add up real quick.

    Good luck

    Thx. I saw the pics there. Really nice pools. I guess my question was - what is a "rocky"or "olde English" style pool?

    Also - any recommendations for builders in Toronto?
