Start Planning Your Pool Installation

Believe it or not, spring is just around the corner and winter can be an ideal time to start planning your backyard landscape for the new spring/summer season.

Winter planning can allow for enough time to create a landscape plan, get questions answered about your pool installation and shop for finish ideas.

Deciding to put a swimming pool in your own backyard is one that most people never regret. The fun that it brings to families and the recreation, comfort and entertainment that it brings to people of all ages make owning your own swimming pool an excellent choice at any stage of life.

Here are a few things to consider:

Budget
There are a number of options of types, sizes and shapes of swimming pools that will suit most budgets. One should consider and compare the features of each type of pool and get accurate pricing. Based on your budget, you can decide which pool would best meet your needs and preferences.

Space, Location and Fencing
The Pool Place takes careful and thorough measurements of your yard to help you determine the size of your pool. This is critical since in most municipalities there are swimming pool building codes that have to be adhered to. In some cities, a full fence enclosure of the immediate pool area is required while in others, fencing around the perimeter of the entire yard is acceptable. Either way, sufficient space around your pool should be considered when deciding on how the size. We will also help you to decide on the location and positioning of a pool in your yard, taking into consideration important factors such as proximity of the pool to your house, access ways from the house and yard to the pool, and sun and shade exposure.

When customizing your fencing and decking we will recommend what works best with your landscape while considering important safety issues. For example, with children and/or pets, it would be important to discuss different kinds of fencing, safety enclosures, gates and alarms that would best suit your needs.

Design
Have a look in mind… do you like clean lines and geometric shapes or, soft, curved lines? Decide on a design with the lines and curves that will aesthetically enhance your home. Individually cut liners are available in a wide variety of colours and patterns to suit your personal taste. The various colours, patterns, and accent borders that are offered may make your decision more difficult, but allows for yet another way to customize your swimming pool and beautify your backyard. Some patterns and colours may be bright and playful, while others may lend a feeling of sophistication and serenity to your landscape design. The Pool Place can help you to choose the liner that is right for your backyard style.
