Creating Inground Swimming Pool Designs Best for Your Home
As we enter into the month of February, we begin to inch closer to a new spring season. On the east coast, much of the landscape and pool world feels dormant throughout these freezing days, and frigid months. However, this is the time of year where plans start to get put into motion. Behind the scenes, inground swimming pool builders across the coast are busy making sure new projects will be underway once the ground unfreezes. Permits are being filed, plans are being finalized, schedules are being set, and the wheels are being put into motion.
The process of developing inground swimming pool designs will take time. As all good things do. When a homeowner chooses to invest in a custom creation, there is a longer process involved. Starting in the winter months gives homeowners the advantage of getting a head start. From the initial site visits, to concepts, creating a master plan and permitting, this part alone can take months. Depending on the level of detail and the difficulty of construction levels involved. Most of the time, the design is not only the pool. A patio space is frequently involved in inground swimming pool designs. Everything from sundecks, to diving rocks, to poolside dining with outdoor kitchens and bars, cabanas, outdoor bathrooms, fire pits, the creativity when customizing the best space for your home is truly endless.
Depending on the needs for your lifestyle, and the budget you are working with, decide on what matters most. Is this space to be used for entertainment? Is it a kid friendly backyard or a private oasis? Is it a luxury space, or a playful one? These big questions will all help to shape the design process from day one.
Often overlooked, the landscaping is a final presence on the property to tie the project together. Inground swimming pool landscaping is an art form in itself. Depending on your property will determine the landscape it needs. If on a busier street, or close by to neighbors, more screening will be needed surrounded the pool to provide privacy. If wildlife is an issue in your area, choosing plant material that will not attract them to come near the pool is important. Depending on where the shade and sun fall on the property will also determine the best specimens to plant and where to plant them. Working with a skilled team of horticulturists will make sure your investment in inground swimming pool landscaping is not a wasted one.
