The Texas shaped lazy river at the Houston Marriott Marquis was a massive undertaking and while lazy rivers have been one of the things resorts put in their hotel, no other place has done it this one or in the size of Texas. This Texas Lazy River is 110 feet above street level. The Texas Lazy River measures 3.6 feet deep and the gentle current can move the guests around the loop in around 15 minutes. If you were to straight out the Texas shape it would be 510 feet long.

When you have a pre-existing swimming pool, you need to think about how it is going to integrate with your lazy river. How are you going to make it flow so it looks great but it also functions well? If you aren’t sure how to go about doing this, you should speak with a pool professional that is going to help you through the process. There are plenty of things to consider when you are creating your lazy river.

Landscaping for Your Lazy River

To create the perfect environment for a lazy river, you need to think about your landscaping. Most people want to create a lush green paradise. If you want to do this as well, you are going to need plenty of plants for your backyard. Whether you want to have palms trees or smaller plants to make up the greenery, you will be able to do this with ease when you are working with professionals.

Whether you have kids or you want to have some of your adult friends over for a float around the lazy river, this is going to be an amazing addition to your backyard.
