Before You Start Digging
Installing a swimming pool isn’t as simple as lining a hole with concrete and filling it with water. Not only do you have to find someone you trust to install it, but you also have to consider your long-term plans and work around whatever backyard features you already have. Here are just a few things to remember during your pool design process:
- Future backyard renovations
- Current backyard features
- Finding a reliable contractor
1) Future Backyard Renovations
Do you have future projects planned for your backyard? If you’re trying to design an outdoor space fit for hosting, you may also be considering features like an outdoor kitchen or a shaded dining area. You won’t want to have to move a pool pipe to make room for a propane line later! Have a clear image in your mind of where you should or shouldn’t place your pool hardware.
2) Current Backyard Features
What’s in your backyard already? Aside from decorative features like plants, consider any electric or gas appliances with buried pipes or cables. Their placement will influence your pool shape and where all the hardware ends up.
Pro Tip: A lot of important factors go into designing your new swimming pool. Don’t get overwhelmed–focus on one thing at a time.
3) Finding a Reliable Contractor
Finally, hire a pool contractor you know you can trust. You’ll have this swimming pool for years–you want it to be high-quality and reliable! With a general outdoor renovation company, you can rest assured the team will take your entire backyard and your future design plans into account during your pool construction.
