7 Backyard Pool Ideas
If you’re short on space and are looking for a spa and a pool, why not combine them? To separate the spa interior from the pool and complete the spa structure, your contractor will construct a “dam wall” with a spillway in order to complete your two-in-one pool/spa.
If you’re looking to create the ultimate space for backyard relaxation: consider creating a lush oasis. Surround your pool with tons of lush vegetation, trees and beautiful flowers. You will feel like you’re in the middle of a tropical jungle in no time.
Adding a waterfall to the edge of your pool or in the middle is another way to showcase your pool’s beauty and have some fun with the design.
We talked about water features, now let’s move on to fire features. Nothing adds that “wow factor” to a backyard pool quite like some fire on top of the pool! These can be added onto any pool to give it a warm, exciting glow that also helps make it a beautiful place while also allowing you to lounge in the water late in the season, and depending where you live, even in the winter months.
Another way to add some ambiance to your backyard is by adding some glowing light to your pool. You can do this by installing underwater lighting. You can choose the color and intensity of the color or there are also multicolored lights that will periodically change color. An evening swim with an evening light show takes the cake in our book when it comes to summertime fun!
You can choose from several different rock wall versions. For example, an embankment, a pile of large stones or an actual wall of rocks. You can use white rocks, gray rocks or a mix, whatever your heart desires! These look especially good when installed underneath waterfalls.
For a very dramatic, resort effect, consider building a swim-up bar in your pool. Your poolside bar doesn’t have to take up a lot of room and can be accommodated even with the most compact in-ground pool designs for small yards.
