Water features

Water features can bring a whole new dimension to your backyard pool, not to mention the concept of moving water attracts attention and gets people talking. By incorporating water features into your poolscape, you’ll not only add an artistic element, but more depth and character as well. From tanning ledges, LED lights, sheer descents and more, the pool design experts at All American Custom Pools & Spas can help you select the right water features to complement your swimming pool and backyard retreat.

Infinity Edge

Infinity edge pools are designed to produce a visual effect of water extending into the horizon. Your swimming pool appears to fall over a ledge and creates a beautiful look and effect. 

Sheer descents

Sheer descents are water features that gently pour into the pool from pool or spa walls and come in various configurations as various, such as a “sheet of glass” effect and sheets of rain-like droplets. They range in size from a few inches wide to several feet for a plethora of elegant looking applications, all providing the soothing sound of falling water!

Tanning Ledge

A tanning ledge, commonly called a sunshelf or baja bench, is a flat ledge typically located at the entrance of the pool. A tanning ledge is the perfect location for a lounge chair, and anyone who wants to avoid getting overheated from the sun or fully submerged while enjoying the pool.


Waterfalls make a classic addition to any pool style and are always popular with children. Our custom designed pool waterfalls offer endless design options – from natural rock waterfalls to flagstone waterfalls and spa spillovers.


Fountains are a great way to create a beautiful, eye-catching focal point anywhere in your pool. Whether you build a fountain in your custom pool or as a standalone feature, fountains provide great ambiance at night, especially when you accent them with LED lights.

The use of LED lighting in your backyard poolscape adds a whole new dimension to the look you’re trying to achieve. Whether you’re incorporating LED accent lighting throughout the project or into custom features like rainfalls, bubblers and steps, a little illumination goes a long way.
