Gold Design Award Winning Pool Landscape

Pool Design and New Pool Landscape Construction  

Summertime is upon us and the long, hot days make jumping into a pool sounds better and better by the minute. After a couple of annoying public pool encounters and high seasonal membership rates, you might have decided it’s time to build your backyard dream pool.

There are many things to consider before starting this process, and landscaping design plans are the most important to thoroughly complete a pool project. To start the pool-scaping process, you’ll need a vision and plan for your backyard oasis. Don’t worry, Guilford Pools has worked with many clients that need professional guidance throughout this process, and our team of design experts can make your vision into a reality. This article will give you a solid starting point for what to think about as you begin your pool journey.

First let’s talk about the biggest, most common regret pool clients often share with us.

Beautiful Pool Landscape

Future-Proof Your New Pool for Long-term Enjoyment!

The number one thing we hear from our long-time customers is they wish they had planned better! Years after the project is completed, clients often share with us that they wish they had included a larger pool deck space or added features such as a waterfall, a slide or a pool heater at the time of pool construction.

It’s very important to understand that your new pool instinctively will become the central location for family cookouts, graduation and birthday parties and simply relaxing with friends and family.  Planning ahead for features such as a fire pit, grill station/outdoor kitchen area, shaded seating areas, Sun-shelves or Play-shelves for little ones and even pets, a pool heater, automatic cleaners, etc. will ensure maximum enjoyment of your new pool through the years as your family grows.

Everyone has a budget in mind when starting this process, but once the pool is complete it can be costly to add or change features later. This is a case better planning is always better from the get-go! The design team at Guilford Pools has lots of ideas on how to minimize regrets and maximize your swimming pool enjoyment for many, many summers to come.
