If lately you’ve been flipping through the pages of Town & Country or Conde Nast Traveller magazines and dreaming a little dream of plunging into a glamorous pool on a hot summer day, the reality could be closer than you think. Candyapple Nursery & Landscaping has earned a name for itself for installing lavish, low-maintenance fiberglass pools in the toniest zip codes on the East Side.

Several years ago, the company partnered with a top national pool manufacturer and has since been elevating back yards to resort-worthy status.

Candyapple Nursery & Landscaping can customize any pool to fit the taste and lifestyle of the homeowner.

“We can customize any pool to fit the taste, lifestyle and whims of the homeowner,” says owner Chris Peters. “Right now, people are looking for pools that will grow with their family, a space that’ll fit their children and their friends, then still be a nice fit when the kids move away, and the parents want to entertain more. We’re installing models that are flat-bottomed without deep ends.”

When it comes to high-end bells and whistles, the sky’s the limit, with features including cascading multilevel configurations, sunken spillover spas and built-in benches within the pool. And for the person who has everything, why not add a tiki bar or two to the surrounding poolscape?

What’s Your Pool Personality?

During a design consultation, pool designers get a feel for how you’ll utilize your pool. Do any of these personalities sound like you?

Parent-centric – You take your role as “architect of happy childhoods” seriously. Enriching every moment of your children’s lives is what makes you tick. Your pool: The Grace Beach entry model includes splash zones and walk-in entry for safety and nonstop hours of fun.

Cannon-baller – You grab life by the horns. Always in motion, you’d love to jump in and swim laps every day. You probably have the beach bod to boot, so why not show it off? Your pool: The Spirit offers up to 40-feet of flat-depth lap swimming.

Escape Artist –Does the idea of running away from daily stress sound like heaven? Would you love to open your back door and slip into a luxurious getaway? Your pool: The Wellspring model comes in a sexy, undulating shape with a spacious deep-end soaking bench.

Crowd Pleaser – Extrovert much? Your natural element is being surrounded by like-minded friends who enjoy letting the good times roll. Your pool: With interior surround bench seating, and in-pool tanning ledges, the Aspen is perfect for your revolving games and gatherings.

Whatever dip fits you to a tee, now is the optimal time to start planning it, as the company has openings for summer and fall as well as scheduling into 2025. (Plus, you’ll lock into current pricing.)

Create Your Ideal Outdoor Oasis

The award-winning designers and landscape artists at Candyapple Nursery and Landscaping have been creating luxurious outdoor spaces for over 70 years. If you can dream it, they can do it.

“Whether you have a patio already in place that you want to reimagine or expand, or will be creating a new space, we can design a bespoke mix of softscapes and hardscapes customized to your distinctive tastes,” says owner Chris Peters.

To bring the space to life, designers dabble in dazzling flower beds, staggering intermittent bloom cycles for yards that look stunning spring, summer and fall. Unusual combinations and creativity are what really set them apart from other landscape firms. Each finished yard is its own work of art and reflective of the homeowner.

When it comes to hardscapes, the team builds posh paver patios (including natural stone, Unilock and Oberfields), ponds and water features, hot tubs, firepits, fireplaces, outdoor lighting, outdoor kitchens, grills, pizza ovens, gazebos, pavilions and pergolas.

“In terms of scale, people are opting for larger spaces that serve as opulent outdoor living rooms to complement the style going on inside the homes,” he says. “Al fresco entertaining is all the rage, and it seems with the yards we’re designing this year people are adding heating elements so they can enjoy them into fall and even winter. Our Amish craftsmen can build enclosures with sides that roll down or are removed in summer yet keep you warm and toasty in the colder months. Since outdoor flat-screen televisions are also trending, clients tell us their backyards have become party central for Cavs, Guardians and Browns games.”

Privacy is also a factor, and Chris says they provide a lovely selection of perimeter and ornamental fencing, as well as creating a “green screen” element with thoughtfully placed trees to lend a feeling of seclusion.
