Swimming pool design is straight out of the playbook

Written by: Amy Diehl

Apparently, what works on the playing field, works in pool design as well. Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Doug Martin knew exactly what he wanted when he decided to add a swimming pool to the new home he was building in North Tampa. During his free time, he had combed the Internet and magazines for the best ideas out there.

That’s where all that on-the-job strategy training came into play. Armed with a dry erase board and colored markers, he sketched out all the features he wanted to be included in the design, complete with notations and arrows, and sent it off to Billy Barber of Landmark Pools to help turn his dreams into reality.
