Hot temperatures and sunny days can only mean one thing when it comes to enjoying our homes: pool parties! Everyone enjoys jumping in the cool water and splashing with the family to beat the heat all summer long, and Horizon Stone products can help you craft the ideal pool area to spend time in. In addition to adding value to your property, enhancing the area around your pool will help your family make cherished memories during the unforgettable summer months. Creating utterly relaxing outdoor spaces has never been easier with attractive stone veneer pool accents!

Stone Exterior Design

For a gorgeous exterior pool space, stone veneer is the perfect material to enhance the connection to the great outdoors. Just the simple addition of a standout accent wall created from Olde World Series stone in color Harbor Bluff (below) transforms this lovely backyard into a resort pool feel! This stone series combines the beauty of multiple stone shapes and tones for a unique blend of old-world charm with a modern touch:

Stone Border Walls

In addition to creating valuable multi-purpose countertops for grilling and keeping items off the ground, we love the way this structural wall helps frame the pool patio. You can design an outdoor layout with walls like this to designate a cooking area, a dining area, and even feature a firepit like this one to encourage fun night swims under the stars!

This Ledgestone wall in color Harbor Bluff (below) presents a natural “stacked” stone look that varies from stone to stone in size, texture, and shape. Available in 13 different color variations, Ledgestone is perfect for designing a space that’s familiar and elegant while adding extra color and texture to your pool area.

Stone Outdoor Kitchen

As your family works up an appetite playing ‘Marco Polo’ in the pool, you can get the burgers, hot dogs, and steaks sizzling off to the side with an outdoor kitchen! Grilling is essential for a summer cookout and a kitchen by the pool will keep the smoke outdoors where it belongs. We adore this mix of Ledgestone and Handcrafted series stone (below) to create this soothing, organic kitchen that feels both luxurious and timeless. Please pass the ketchup and mustard!

Stone Columns & Covered Spaces

In the event of summer rain showers, it always helps to have a covered space by the pool before everyone makes a mad dash inside while still dripping wet! This attractive covered area created with Rockface stone in color Hermitage (below) helps complete a pool patio that’s prepared for the elements. You can use the chiseled texture, symmetrical shape, and clean lines of these classic style stones to craft the perfect contemporary and modern structures.
