"Dear Peter

I am writing to thank you, Bree and Marion for the magnificent job you have done in transforming our 40 year old back yard into something very special.

Peter Glass & Associates have created for us a magnificent pool and outdoor living space which can be enjoyed throughout the seasons.  The pool with its amazing wet edge/waterfall is a water feature with the ‘Wow’ factor.  As it stretches across the garden, with the water trickling over the pool edge and down the limestone feature wall, the sound of the gentle cascade and the view of the lights dancing in the movement of the water creates a wonderful atmosphere.

We have thoroughly enjoyed eating breakfast, lunch and dinner outside in the garden surrounded by beautiful plantings, gorgeous travertine, manicured lawns and of course that amazing poolscape.  The extra work you did for us with the front balcony and in the front garden totally transformed the look of our house and brought it up to where we wanted it to be.  Your expertise seems to have no bounds.

We have loved working with you and your amazing team.  The whole process was a delightful experience.  Please feel free to use this letter as a reference for future clients.

We had hoped during all the planning and discussion stages that the new pool would be good but you have created something that has exceeded all of our expectations.

We cannot thank you enough!”

"Hi Peter

You may recall that you designed our pool almost eight years ago – well, we just wanted to let you know that it looks as fabulous today as the day it was finished.  Virtually every visitor to our home comments on the jaw-dropping brilliance of your design.  Our backyard was originally virtually unusable, and we never imagined that we would be able to incorporate such a magnificent pool and such great entertaining areas in the steep space available.  We are very appreciative!  The kids and us have obtained so much pleasure from the pool over the years that we couldn’t imagine living here without it!

Looking back, you made the design process and the Council approval process easy from the very start and your honest feedback and recommendations, plus your advice on finishes and equipment, were much appreciated.

Thank you for your vision!!!

Best wishes”

"Dear Peter

We first contacted you because we needed help in deciding the size, shape and location of our pool-in fact, you were actually recommended to us by another landscape architect who on seeing our property said that ‘only Peter Glass could do justice to this site’ – and he was right!!

As soon as you walked onto our site you came up with the brilliant idea for our sunken pool and cascade, plus adjacent sunken seating area and central fire pit – but I guess that comes from your 30+ years experience!  

Your design has allowed us to enjoy our pool as well as our garden to their fullest potential.  We did not experience the difficulties with Council that we had been expecting, especially seeing we have a Heritage house in a Heritage Conservation Area.  The expertise and knowledge of you and your team, and the quality of your design and presentation, streamlined the Council process and helped ensure that we had not objections from neighbours.

As a result, we had our plans designed and approved and our pool built within a year, and we now enjoy our garden in ways we never anticipated! Whether we are watching and listening to the pool water flow over the pool weir and into the pond below, or sitting around the fire pit in our sunken seating area, we really cannot say enough good things about Peter Glass & Associates!

Everyone on your team is extremely pleasant, professional and experienced, and fully understanding of what will benefit the client without wasting time or money. It is a credit to you that most of your team have been with you for between 10 and 20 years, which is pretty rare these days.

Our pool is unique and designed specifically for our site, our ‘wish list’ and our budget – you won’t find another pool like this in one of the pool magazines! We have a brand new, modern pool – yet it fits in perfectly with our 100 year old home. The sandstone coping perfectly matches the sandstone around our home, the surface of the pool reflects all of the trees around the pool (and comes into its own at night!) whilst the incorporation of the weir and cascade into the design ensure that the falling leaves are never a problem.  We now have a pool that is a beautiful water feature that looks and sounds great – and that everyone in the family loves to swim in!

Would we use you again, Peter? Definitely, except that we don’t ever want to leave this beautiful pool and landscape that you have created for us!”

"Hi Peter

I just wanted to let you know personally how very, very pleased I am with the Plan prepared by you and Asher.  It is so much better than I thought possible – especially given the interpretation of the standards and regulations that have been imposed upon us by Council.  Asher (who has been both excellent and delightful to deal with) has taken me through the Plan, which seems to me to be clearly compliant with AS1926.1-2007.  If Council agrees that this is the barrier I am required to build, I will consider it an outstanding result in all the circumstances!

I just wanted to let you know that, as far as I am concerned, your Plan is fantastic!!

I am beyond grateful.”

"Hello Peter

It’s been such a long time…. hope this finds you and yours exceptionally well and that all goes well in your world.

I think Rod spoke to you recently and that you know we have sold our beautiful pool and home. May I take this opportunity to thank you once again for creating such a "sanctuary” for us. The pool will be the hardest thing for me to leave. It has truly given us so much pleasure and I’m sure, was a major reason for the purchase by the new owners.

It has been on TV and appeared in numerous magazines – and will always be my little piece of Heaven on earth! So thank you, Peter – you made all the difference! Please feel free to use me as a reference at any time in the future.

Kind regards”
