Please describe the project specifications

A pool side aluminum pergola with a waterfall feature was manufactured and installed for the client. The frame was powder coated a custom dark green color (RAL7013). A retractable remote controlled solar shade was mounted to the top of the trellis. The rear columns of the structure provided an enclosure for the electric wiring for the solar shade while the front columns encased all the necessary plumbing for the waterfall feature.

What was the purpose of this project? What did the client request?

Our client wanted to add an architectural accent to their backyard that was also functional. They wanted more than "just a canopy” for shade and to showcase their pool area.

What is unique or complex about the project?

The waterfall pergola required collaboration with electric and plumbing vendors which made the installation process a bit more involved. The pool contractor, Van Kirk Pools, supplied the materials and plumbing for our client. The water used in the waterfall is recycled from the available pool water conserving natural resources. Internally hiding all the plumbing and electrical wiring within the frame ensured a pristine and aesthetic appearance to the outdoor area.

What were the results of the project?

The functionality and elegance of the pergola has given our client a wonderful outdoor space to relax in and enjoy. The waterfall trellis and retractable solar shade provided a soothing decorative feature enhancing the appearance and value of their home.
