Embarking on a new pool and landscaping project was a bit daunting at first, however with the help of the Fifth Season Landscapes team, from design to construction, the process has been a wonderful experience. The design ideas and practical use of space have completely transformed our garden in a way we never imagined. 

The design consultation process and communication through the construction phase ensured we felt listened to, informed and part of the process from start to finish. Thanks to the whole team for a great job from the moment we started this project with you.

Process

When you engage Fifth Season Landscapes to build or renovate your pool, you are taken through a step-by-step process that our Directors have honed to perfection after many years of experience designing and constructing some of the best pools and landscapes in Sydney.

Let's discuss your next project

STAGE ONE: Initial Consult

This stage will involve a site visit to discuss ideas and options for the design of your new pool, including the location of the pool in your garden, the addition of a spa, whether you have an above-ground pool or an in-ground pool, design features such as an infinity edge or a knife edge, and options for the surrounding garden areas to complement your pool design. We will also talk through your budget for the project, to ensure that what we design for you matches both your budget and your tastes.

After the initial site visit you will be supplied with a design fee proposal. The design fee proposal will consist of a design brief developed from the initial consult.

STAGE TWO: Pool Concept Design

During this stage, you are able to see your new pool come to life on screen. Here is where we develop a concept for your design, enabling you to visualise what your new pool area will look like. Your 3D perspectives will ensure you can properly visualise your new pool, along with a budget estimate of pool construction costs. We will also talk you through the materials we have selected for your new pool, including tile selections, pool coping selections, and paving or decking selections (which will be finalised during the Design Development + Detailing phase outlined below).

Following your initial feedback, we will then refine the concept design for your pool and turn the budget estimate into a fixed price construction quote. During this process we will look to address all items within the brief, along with any other specific requests in order to ensure the final concept meets both design brief and budget.

STAGE THREE: Approval Drawings

This stage will come about if the development requires approval through either council (Development Application) or a private certifier (Complying Development Consent).

STAGE FOUR: Design Development + Detailing

Design Development and Detailing involves the preparation of construction drawings to refine the concept plan and detail finishes for the project. This stage includes drawings and specifications for the key construction elements along with any required design development and detailing throughout the construction process. This will include site visits, pool set-out and detail drawings, along with the specification of all material selections and a meeting to review and approve all of these items.

STAGE FIVE: Construction Certificate

Once the Development Application or Complying Development Consent has been approved and the contract has been signed, we will obtain the Construction Certificate, which is required before any work can commence on site.

STAGE SIX: Construction

Now begins the phase where we bring your new swimming pool to life through our carefully tailored pool construction program! During the construction phase, our team will keep you informed every step of the way to ensure the build runs as smoothly as possible.

STAGE SEVEN: Handover

Finally, the best bit: we hand over your completed pool, designed and constructed for you and your family to enjoy for many seasons to come.

Frequently Asked Questions

When you first make contact with Fifth Season Landscapes, our initial site consultation will cost $220 +GST. After this first meeting, we can discuss a design fee proposal – including a detailed pool design brief and the associated costs involved.

At Fifth Season, we are always striving to provide great service and pride ourselves on being quick to respond to new enquiries. After your initial consult, it typically takes us 48 hours to produce a pool design quote tailored to your property. we will supply you with a design fee proposal detailing the costs involved for your pool design. We can also begin to estimate the pool construction costs for your project to ensure that what we are designing is going to match your budget.

There are so many different factors that affect the cost of a new pool, or a pool renovation. You may decide on an above-ground pool or plunge pool, or an in-ground lap pool, or even a natural pool. You may decide to add a spa to your pool, or a design feature such as an infinity edge. Your pool may be straight or curved depending on what pool design best suits you and your property. For all these reasons, it’s impossible to estimate a cost for your new pool prior to our initial consultation with you.

The reason for our initial site consultation and the fee involved is to enable us to make an accurate estimation of the scope of your pool project, and to advise you accordingly. It is important that we take the time to listen to your wish list for your new pool area and make suggestions as to how we can best achieve your dream pool for you.

We provide you with an accurate estimate on construction costs during the design phase of your pool and spa project. Due to the fact that our team is experienced in both landscape and pool design and construction in the Northern Beaches, North Shore and throughout Sydney, we are very well equipped to provide you with a realistic cost to have your pool built in a way that ensures it looks great and stands the test of time from a construction perspective.

From set out, breaking ground and spraying the concrete shell for your new pool to tiling the interior and finishing the landscaping around your pool before filling the pool with water for the first time, you can expect this process to take several months. The time it takes to construct your new pool depends on the size and complexity of your pool design, the access to your property, and whether you have other trades on site whose schedule impacts on ours.

Once the design for your new pool is finalised, we can give you an accurate construction timeline to ensure you are prepared for the construction phase of your project.

Pool Design

Fifth Season Landscapes pools often form the centrepiece of the landscape designs we produce. Pools offer so much in the way of lifestyle and enjoyment and are also a large expense, and so it is critical that they are designed correctly and positioned appropriately within the landscape.

Pool Construction

Our construction team are licensed, qualified, and experienced in all aspects of Pool Construction. A pool is a major lifestyle investment, and therefore it’s important to choose your Pool Builder wisely. Fifth Season Landscapes are fully insured for Pool Construction, ensuring your peace of mind when it comes to embarking on a pool project with us. Fifth Season specialise in concrete pool design and construction, which is a longer-term solution with more flexible options for custom shapes and sizes.

Pool Renovations

If your home already has a pool, but it’s outdated in design and needs a facelift, we can assist. The Fifth Season Landscapes team have years of experience in renovating pools of all shapes and sizes. Swimming pool renovations may involve the replacement of the pool interior or retiling, replacement of the paving and pool coping surrounding your pool, or even structural changes such as the addition of a spa.
