Luxe Pool and Spa Designs Featuring Granite and Bluestone


A luxe pool and spa in your backyard can take relaxation and recreation to another level. There are so many designs to choose from – infinity edge, perimeter overflow, freeform, geometric, kidney shaped or classic rectangular. But only certain hardscape materials will give a resort-style poolscape that high-end look and unsurpassed quality. With granite and natural stone, you can create a luxurious poolside oasis that will last for generations.

At Swenson Granite Works, we’ve supplied stone for countless pool and spa designs. Our Woodbury Gray granite and bluestone tend to be the most popular choice for coping, decking and patios.

Before we dive into a few stunning pool and spa projects featuring these materials, let’s take a look at what makes them so luxurious.


Granite coping with a full-bullnose pool edge provides a durable and welcoming touch around pool and spa edges. Sandblasting the granite coping helps reduce slipping. Woodbury Gray is favored by many of our customers because it doesn’t get as hot as dark colored stone, it’s maintenance-free and available for special order.


Bluestone also makes perfect pool coping due to its non-slip properties. This material typically has a thermal finish, and the warm hue blends well with the water.

Granite pavers and thermal bluestone are commonly used for pool decking and patios. We see many designs that use the same material for both the pool coping and decking, but there are some that feature two different stones; for example, bluestone coping with Woodbury Gray granite decking.

Not only are granite and natural stone slip resistant, naturally durable and maintenance free, they are also beautiful in appearance and have a consistent look that can stand the test of time; all features that make them ideal for pool coping, decking and patios.

Swenson Granite Works can help you enjoy a resort-style retreat all summer long by working with you to choose your features and plan your pool project from start to finish. We can also connect you with a contractor in your area. Visit one of the nine Swenson Granite Works stores located throughout New England.
