5 Factors to Consider When Building a Pool

Posted on Posted in Landscape

Nothing can beat the heat of summer days than to relax by the pool and take a nice plunge every now and then.  A well designed swimming pool can become the hub of family life and entertaining in summertime, and it will be a much more enjoyable outdoor living experience if it perfectly complements your entire landscape design.

If you are ready to install a pool in your outdoor living space, here are the following factors to consider as you imagine your layout.

  1. Space 

Consider the size and shape of your available space – its area will determine what is possible in terms of pool type, design and shape.

  1. Budget  

What is the budget you need to allocate to get the pool up and running?  Do you have a flexible budget for the additional costs of landscape design & construction like furniture, pool decks, fences and patios; and the cost of pool maintenance? Put your budget together before you start your project.

  1. Users

Determine who will be using the pool and how many.  You may have little kids who want to play in the swimming pool or adults who want lap swimming. Are you going to entertain guests in the pool area? How often do you plan on entertaining and approximately how many people will be at your get-togethers?  

  1. Other Features and accessories

Your pool can be a perfect focal point of your landscape design in summer months, so you might want to grow flowering plants, install pool waterfall or fountain and add lights to the pool area to showcase its entire landscape design.  Perhaps you need a custom outdoor kitchen, ample seating area or other unique features for outdoor pool areas to entertain guests and to relax and take a break.

  1. Contractor

It’s so crucial to consult and hire landscape build services that will safely and rightly install your dream backyard pool (whether it is a ground or above ground pool) within your budget and in compliance with regulations in your area.
