Poolside paradise
There’s no better combination than hot weather and water where friends and family build lasting memories under the summer sun

The Dormans made a few changes to the pool area when they purchased their Brookfield home. Bev Dorman is an avid gardener with plenty of creative talent. The couple removed the tall hedge-row planted near the pool and replaced it with the pergola which Bev designed. The change opened the view into the remainder of the backyard and is the perfect place to sit and have cocktails or a light meal. The pavers surrounding the pool lend a warmer Mediterrean feel than white concrete.

The Wagners called Boneck’s Professional Pool Builders Inc. of Wales when they decided to add an in-ground pool to their backyard. The Wagners wanted their pool area to be an extension of the natural surroundings in their Delafield yard.

During the summer months, Dan and Lori Lorenz spend plenty of quality time by the pool with their four children, Jake, Kayla, McKenna and Samantha. "Whether the need exists to simply cool off on a hot summer day or relax and socialize while backyard grilling with family and friends, our pool offers us a setting that takes us out of the daily demands and offers a sense of peace and tranquility that we enjoy most," says Lori Lorenz. The pool was designed and constructed by David Thompson of Swimming Pool Services Inc. and landscaped by John Erdman of Terra Tec Landscapes Inc. of Richfield.
