This is the busiest time of year in our industry. Summer living was made for pools: A way to create a personal vacation spot right in your own backyard. Homeowners today are looking to create the perfect oasis on their own property. It is a way to invest in a permanent vacation, a place to relax and unwind, and a place to entertain and create summer memories.
When it comes to creating a swimming pool, making sure your yard is aesthetically pleasing is the goal. A kid friendly pool, a place to entertain guests, or just a summer escape your whole family can enjoy. When deciding on the swimming pool to best suit your summer living goals, it is important to first consider what type of pool it is that you are looking for: A formal pool or an informal pool; a natural pool, or a structured pool. There are also various features that you may want to include such as a waterfall, a Jacuzzi, a water slide, or a diving rock. Deciding on what types of night lighting you may want to use is also something to consider, as well as what furniture and accessories will go best with your swimming pool design.
Summer Living Outdoor Furniture & Accessories
There are many ways to customize your backyard space. Beyond just the swimming pool design. Everything else that goes into the design process, helps to bring your individual personality and taste into the project. From colors, materials, textures and accents chosen, to the outdoor rooms created. These decisions and personal touches bring the space to life.
Incorporating outdoor living spaces to your yard helps to tie your pool in with your home seamlessly, while creating an entirely new room for you to enjoy. Choosing summer living patio furniture is a fun way to add color and personality to your outdoor space. Using different colored cushions for chairs, or outdoor couches, is an easy way to switch up the space and bring a new atmosphere to your yard.
Outdoor television technology has come a long way, and have many options to add to a seating area or fixed above an outdoor fireplace. Spending time outdoors becomes even more appealing in the summertime, with your favorite shows or teams streaming out there with you.
Final touches are in the landscape. It is important to choose the right types of landscape surrounding your pool. It is important to not choose plants that may attract bees or other wildlife. Working with professional landscape architects can help you decide on the necessity and placement of any pool benches, sun decks, swim outs, steps, and where to place the pool in your yard for the ideal sunlight.
Using container gardens, or planters is another easy way to add personal touches and color throughout your front and backyard. These planters can be updated seasonally, to change the look and feel of the summer living space even through the colder winter months.
