Their pools are not only beautiful, but they are extremely safe and functional as well.

When you look at pools, too often they are one size fits most situations where you have to change your yard around the pool. However, JoPa has customized pools that allow you to fit a pool to your yard. This can be a great way to get your dream pool, or just to get something at all – many yards aren’t set up for traditional pools.

people in Richmond. However, there is no way to get a more beautiful space with depth and dimension than to add a fountain.

Patio & Pool Landscapes does a ton of hardscaping and pool work, but they really shine when it comes to fountains. Their work is some of the most beautiful you will ever see. From natural looking fountains that lead into ponds to stand alone fountains that are geometric, you will be able to find something that matches with your yard’s style.

However, the biggest reason we suggest Patio & Pool Landscapes is because they back up their work – if you have any problems with your fountain, they will help you out.

Keep Your Yard Looking Great

Once you get your yard looking its absolute best, then it is up to you to keep it that way. Ridgeline can help you there as well – pools turn green quickly when they don’t get sunlight or debris falls into them, and patio furniture might stand up to sunlight, but sap can really do a number on it.
