Automated outside

Land Tech combined technology and a custom pool.

This project by Land Tech Group, a Lynchburg, Virginia-based company, showcased one of the company’s custom concrete pools that is unique to the Central Virginia area. This 20- x 40-foot fully automated curvilinear pool is complete with paver deck space, a raised spa with spillover, a 12- x 13-foot lounge and a 9-foot-wide swim-in grotto that combines both fire and water to create a nice focal point.

The automation is also compatible with “Alexa” so the homeowner can say “Alexa turn on waterfall” and the waterfall that pours out of the top of the grotto will turn on. This project took four-and-a-half months to complete.

Grading this site was the most challenging part of the project because the back end of the property slopes significantly. In order to be able to support the extra weight of the natural stone grotto, the crew had to put an extra-large footing with concrete piers to provide the structural support for the weight so the slope could be graded as needed.
