Infinity Pools & Vanishing Edges

Infinity pools (also called vanishing-edge pools or negative-edge pools) have edges that seem to extend beyond the pool and continue right into the horizon. This popular style creates a breathtaking effect and will enhance a scenic view. Explore ideas for your own pool design.
