How to Hide your Pool Equipment with Vinyl Lattice

It’s almost time to open your pool for the season. There’s nothing more beautiful than the sun high in the sky reflecting off of the crystal clear water of the pool. Your pool area is your private oasis making it a great place to relax. It’s going to be a great gathering place for your family and friends this summer too. You can’t wait! Then as you’re looking around, you see it. Yes, there it is, the big ugly pool filter, pump, and PVC pipes all spread out, sitting atop a couple of blocks or cement slab. UGH! Of course, the equipment is necessary, but you do not have to tolerate it as an eyesore.

A Before and After Look at Vinyl Lattice Underskirting
As the winter weather diminishes and the first signs of spring appear, you may be contemplating ways to beautify areas on your property.

There are several ways to refresh or create beauty in any outdoor space. You can choose to add numerous varieties of plants and flowers to the landscape. You can add walkways, arbors or even add a water feature. Or you may choose to completely revamp an entire outdoor space.

Take a look at what one of our clients decided to do with the patio and deck area.

Big change right?

First, the client removed the cinderblock borders, steps, patio, and plants. There was no need to level or re-slope the yard as this gradual grade was utilized in the landscaping of the area. For the patio, large paving stones and pea gravel was used. The steps are made from paving stones as well. Then natural stone and a dark capstone were used to create the elevated garden areas used for new plants and a water feature. There was a new post added to the corner on the deck which is anchored in the new garden area by the steps. The outside frame pieces of the deck were painted black.

Vinyl Lattice Materials

The DuraShell® 1” square lattice was extended from beneath the deck to the block foundation of the house. The U-channel was used to cap the top of each sheet and the H-channel was used to connect each sheet giving the foundation a framed and finished look.

Notice the combination of the stone textures, the color choice of the deck boards and the white lattice all work together to blend this entire area. We think this entire project turned out awesome. The area looks so inviting now. Makes you want to sit outside for a while, doesn’t it?

In addition to this project our DuraShell® vinyl lattice is a great option for many types of projects. Please take some time and browse our news/blog section to see how others have used our products. While you’re there peek in the Photo Gallery to see pictures shared with us by our clients.
