Nantucket Pools and Spas
There are not too many people who do not like to swim and relax in water. A swimming pool offers this in your backyard in a controlled environment. Nowadays, when children and adults are fixed to their devices the swimming pool and or spa is a great way to break away and enjoy some outdoor activities.
We build pools the right way, cutting no corners on materials or quality of craftsmanship. We approach the pool design as an extension of landscape, providing owners and architects with a seamless, hassle-free transition. We take pride in ensuring a consistent quality and a pleasant experience for every client.
The landscape is the root of my business which started in 1997. I still very much enjoy a hard days work pruning and digging in the soil.

We are one of the leading companies specializing in organics and sustainability on Nantucket with at least four members of our crew as accredited land care professionals by Northeast Organic Farmers Association (NOFA).

Natural Swimming Pool
The Natural Swimming Pool; or Natural Swimming Pond (NSP) originated in Austria & Germany over 30 years ago. Today, there are more than 30,000 Natural Swimming Pools across Europe; including large, public swim facilities.
The Natural Swimming Pool is based on limnology; a scientific system that allows plant and microorganisms to naturally filter the swimming water; which make it free of chlorine and other harmful chemicals.
Jesse Dutra and his Waterscapes team have been on the cutting edge of sustainable and socially responsible land care and have been traveling to Europe to study the Natural Swimming Pool. They are excited to bring this technology back to United States for their clientele in Southeastern Massachusetts, Cape Cod, Nantucket, and Martha’s Vineyard.
By offering the Natural Swimming Pool to homeowners, it allows for a healthier and rejuvenating alternative to the conventional, sterile swimming pool. With our horticulturalists, water gardeners and land care professionals, we can help create a beautiful and sustainable waterscape for your family and friends to enjoy.
