Backyard Design If you’ve decided to enhance your backyard design plan with a pool, you probably picture yourself lounging out in the water and catching some rays on a daily basis. Although it’s good to imagine what it’s going to be like to have a pool in your backyard, it’s also important to consider where your new pool will go. To ensure that your pool complements your overall backyard design plan, you need to think about:

  • How much space you have – The size of your backyard will largely impact the design of your new pool. While determining how big you can make your pool, keep in mind that other features that go along with it, like the pool deck, will also take up some space in your yard.
  • Your yard’s characteristics – Depending on your current backyard design, some spots in your backyard will be more amenable to a pool than others. For instance, if a spot in your backyard is prone to flooding or has utility lines buried underneath it, this wouldn’t be a good place for a pool.
  • Your personal preferences – Ideally, you should base your pool’s design on what will work best for you, as well as the rest of your family, after you take into account how much space you have and any limiting characteristics in your yard.
