Cipriano Custom Swimming Pools & Landscaping’s Gold winning projects include an vanishing edge pool (also known as a infinity or negative edge swimming pool) with a roman end located on 10 secluded mountaintop acres in Kinnelon, NJ. A large spa and a sun shelf at the shallow end were added to allows users a chance for active and passive recreation. The pool include waterline tile consisting of a two-color hand-crafted iridescent glass tile set in a Grecian key pattern. To carry over the design, a three-color iridescent glass tile Grecian key and border was added to the bottom of the pool along with 200 fiber optic star lights, three multi-color wall mounted lights and four illuminated deck jets at the corners to accentuate the pool’s features at night. The pool also features the latest in high efficiency/low maintenance options, variable speed pumps and high efficiency heater along with the in-floor cleaning system to reduce energy consumption by 70% while maintaining a 90% clean swimming environment.
The second Gold winning project in Mahwah, NJ, feature a pool with waterfalls and living boulders. Three separate waterfalls were constructed to create varied water and sound effects. In addition, Cipriano Custom Swimming Pools & Landscaping installed a volcanic fire pit next to the oversized spa. Natural gas powered flames rise from a bed of crushed glass and light up the niche created with natural boulders. Finishing touches include a running bond of slate and iridescent glass mosaic tile at the waterline and step and shelf-banding and color-changing fiber optic lights to create shadows, depth and accents on the stone of the waterfalls.
Cipriano Custom Swimming Pools & Landscaping’s Bronze winning project in Mahwah, NJ, features a custom swimming pool, spa and waterfalls to transform the home into a “staycation” destination for its residents. Prior to engaging Cipriano, the property had a deck and play set, but was improperly graded and the yard was too wet to enjoy. To incorporate all features requested by the homeowner including a sun shelf, spa, waterfalls and a water slide, the pool was constructed at 900 square feet. The luxurious waterfall, accented with three to twelve-ton weathered field stone boulders to create a natural look, ran down a large boulder to create another waterfall feed pond. Other outdoor living structures included a 800 square foot outdoor kitchen, a fireplace in the outdoor living room and a survivor style fire-pit.
The second Bronze award winning project in Saddle River, NJ features a koi pond that users could relax next to after a stressful day. Tall flowing grasses were used to create a secluded area surrounding the pond while water lilies provided shade for the large amount of fish swimming in the structure. Cipriano Custom Swimming Pools & Landscaping created a waterfall and a platform for a bench using natural stones.
