The negative edge pool is notably stunning when near a water source like oceans or lakes. Near water, the negative edge pool gives the illusion that the pool water does not end, and is harmoniously continued to the water source.
On high ground, the negative edge pool looks like a magic trick. How can the water simply stand up if the pool is not enclosed on all sides with an edge? The negative edge pool is particularly stunning at night, and owners of such pools often enjoy their reflective ability.
When the night sky is studded with stars, the pool reflects the stars and the night sky and seems to represent the infinity of the sky. If a water source like a lake or ocean is below the pool, a view of the pool from several feet away seems to reflect the sky far out into the lake or ocean.
