Now is the time to start thinking about summer!

If you have chosen to invest in installing a new pool on your property, then congratulations! Owning a pool is truly a goal for so many people and is even now in the vision of the modern day American Dream. Once you have taken the plunge and decided to invest in a private pool, there are so many fun decisions to make. How will you use your pool? Do you have kids and pets? Can you see yourself entertaining out near your pool? Once questions like these are answered, you can start to narrow down all of the options that come with designing a new pool.


One fun aspect of designing a new pool is picking out any special features you want it to have. These may include spas, water features, or garden structures to truly take your backyard to the next level. You could also choose to leave room for a play area for kids, a tanning deck, an outdoor kitchen, a garden, or special fencing or landscape features. If you want to extend your pool season into the fall, consider incorporating a heat source like a fire pit, fireplace, patio flame, or space heaters. Cabanas, pergolas, and trellises are also nice, trendy features to add to your backyard paradise.

Pool Purpose

Consider what you will be using your pool for most. This will help determine which pool shape to choose. If you want to use your pool for exercise, a rectangular shape will be best for swimming laps. Freeform shapes are great if you want your pool to blend in seamlessly with the curvature of your backyard. Think about how you will want your pool to look from both the outside and inside of your house, and then go from there.


A necessary, but not so much fun part about designing your new pool is setting a reasonable budget. It is imperative that you set your pool budget early on in the process as to not rack up incurring or surprising costs. An experienced pool contractor will be able to give you a reasonable quote up front if you know what you are looking for. Providing your contractors with a budget will help them grasp the scope of the project and will play a role in design and material selection.

Draw It

Though it may seem silly, putting your vision onto paper is a great way to convey your design ideas to your contractors. Sketching your pool allows your contractors to know exactly what you want and can even alert you to possible changes that may be needed later in the process.
