New Orleans is a place of water. Lakes and bayous surround it, and its geography is defined by the Mississippi River. A vision made liquid by the chimera of a summer day, the air thick with moisture and humidity, can make it feel as though you’re swimming while walking. Perhaps the lost city of Atlantis is found?

New Orleanians thrive and cope in many ways. Seersucker suits and light summer dresses; icy sno-cones; cool libations on covered porches and verandas; air-conditioned everything; and of course, swimming pools.

There are so many lovely interpretations of the swimming pool a New Orleans homeowner can include as part of his or her lifestyle. From compact, sleek and modern, to a sub-tropical oasis or boutique hotel-inspired — you can’t go wrong.

The city’s unique lot sizes offer both challenge and opportunity for expression for a private oasis tailored to your taste, style and hot weather whims.
