Cool It with Travertine

Travertine can be the perfect solution for pool decking and coping, such as this Ivory travertine masterpiece overlooking Futch Creek. The lighter color ranges of this versatile stone provide a cool, uniform surface for poolside footprints. (Photos by Renee Sauer)

Travertine coping for tightly curved pools and spas come in 4″ x 9″ sections. Otherwise, it is available in 12″ x 24″ sections.

The coping is typically dressed with a bullnosed edge for a smooth finish.

This travertine pool deck is contrasted with a triple basalt column set in river pebbles (right side front). The columns sparkle against the cool blue water (below).
