Choose the ideal pool coping can make a huge difference in the way your swimming pool looks. We provide some great information and an overview of the various coping options available for your inground pool.


The material used to cap the pool edge or shell wall is called Coping. There are many options available such as poured-in-place concrete, precast concrete, tile, and natural stone (pavers, flagstone, etc.).

Poured concrete coping

Using poured concrete coping allows the pool deck to be a single unit. Installers incorporate the coping right over the edge of the pool creating a seamless finish on the horizontal plane. This method make a small perimeter around the pool look alot bigger, and give the pool deck area a cleaner more symmetrical look.

Precast pool coping

Precast concrete coping is an ideal choice that offers a wide variety of textures, patterns, and colors. The cost for installation is typically lower cost than doing a poured concrete deck or natural stone. From an installers viewpoint, it is usually much simpler to install, and offers uniformity in thickness and color, in contrast to working with natural stone.

Natural stone coping

Natural stone or brick pavers are another coping solution that provide  texture, warmth and the sturdiness of stone. There are many materials to choose from ranging from granite, to fieldstone or even limestone. Let our experts help you explore long-lasting coping solutions.

Fire & Water Features


With a fire element, you can fulfill your outdoor entertainment needs in a number of ways, from sunken fire pits to traditional custom stone work. We can build custom stonework to contain your fire element, whether it’s a fire bowl, table, or insert, at Lakeside Custom Pools.

If you use your fire feature to grill food in the summer or simply to create ambiance, the type of fire feature you select reflects your personality. For modern patios, recessed fire pits are perfect, ideally with no kids running around. A stacked stone fireplace is a rustic, child-friendly addition to any patio, or maybe even a four-unit table-top pit that displays your modern taste.

Water features, which range from waterfalls to decorative ponds, are a soothing and calming addition to any backyard. They not only look amazing, they sound even better, adding to the relaxed nature of the place. Water features, depending on how elaborate you choose to go, serve as a focal point and, in the case of ponds, can also attract wildlife.

Your water feature can also go beyond practical and double as an art piece. With a water feature that features varying amounts of water pouring over a brick wall, covering the patio, flowing under a decorative bridge and emptying into a fish pond, you can get really intricate.
