A pool can turn your backyard into a resort. The right-sized pool and surrounding landscape will create a delightful place to relax and enjoy the water in warm weather and the pool may even increase your property’s value.

Consider adding a spa tub and water features similar to the designs from Neave Pools in New York and Connecticut. Here are some other pool tips for you!

Types of Pool Materials

You have three major choices for pool construction:

  • In-ground gunite
  • Fiberglass that can be in-ground with 18″ above ground
  • Vinyl in-ground or above in a frame

Your decision is based on your budget and the amount of room available. The traditional gunite pool is a mix of concrete and sand with a plaster coating. This pool can come in any size and shape. Decorative tile work and mosaics can be added. An elevated spa tub can be attached with a waterfall cascade into the pool. A sun shelf in the shallow end is another popular feature.

The rimless infinity pool is a trendy design for gunite pools, especially on hillside property. The design possibilities are infinite.

Fiberglass pools come in various sizes and shapes, but they are a pre-fabricated shell. The pool is delivered on a truck and placed into the prepared ground. The pool can extend up to 18″ above ground for raised decking. The pool shell is usually painted with light or dark blue gelcoat but other colors are available.

Pools with vinyl liners are the least expensive and durable. While gunite pools last for decades with proper maintenance, vinyl liner pools have a 10-year lifespan. Fiberglass pools can last for more than 20 years with the proper maintenance.

Vinyl pools are placed on a frame. They must be checked for tears on a regular basis. They are great above-ground pools on a level pad.

Saltwater pools are growing in popularity. This type of pool offers cleaner and safer sanitation systems using a special chlorinator that eliminates the harsh chemical smell. The salt level is not the same as the sea. It is closer to your teardrops in salinity.

 

Landscaping Around the Pool

Without attractive landscaping, a pool is just a cement pond. The grounds around the pool turn an ordinary yard into a mini resort. You have numerous options based on the area available.

Some people want tropical landscaping while others want limited foliage. A water element such as a fountain or waterfall can be added to the pool area. Fire pits with seating built into the decking create an elegant multi-use area around the pool. Many pool owners put in cabanas, dressing rooms and showers near the pool.

Fences are necessary for safety. A pool and yard can be enclosed with walls that incorporate the same hardscape materials as the decking.

 

Swimming Pool Lighting

Lighting is an important component of the landscape design and the swimming pool itself. Pathways must have lights for safety, but the pool should also be illuminated.

The right lighting for a pool gives a dramatic look to your yard. This violin shape pool offers the ultimate in design and dramatic lighting.

Lights can be placed anywhere. LED lighting is now popular inside of pools. LED lights are cooler, versatile and last longer both in and out of the water. You can install a color-changing LED light in any pool. Floating LED pool lights come in a variety shapes including lotus flowers and sea creatures.

A swimming pool is a great way to cool off in the summer and enhance your yard. Find the right pool for you through a consultation with a professional pool contractor and landscape company.
