Swimming Pools

JM Mento Landscape Design helps you determine the optimal location for your new swimming pool in your backyard with a few initial steps:

  1. A consultation with you and your family to learn about the lifestyle you would like to accomplish in your backyard, such as maximizing lawn areas or patios areas. 
  2. Joe will study site conditions, such as grades, sun angles, and off-site views
  3. Extensive research of zoning guidelines that are particular to your site, such as setbacks and impervious coverage allotment.
  4. Once all this information has been obtained, Joe will prepare a landscape master plan, placing your new swimming pool in the perfect backyard location!

Joe and his team plan out all aspects of your swimming pool project in the landscape master plan. There are many important factors to plan for when adding a new swimming pool, like:

• Grading

• Drainage
