Planning Your Backyard Swimming Pool Location
When you plan on putting a pool in your backyard, you’ve got to think about more than the enjoyment your family is going to get from it. The placement of your pool changes the convenience, but even more than that, it also has an impact upon the overall feel of the backyard.
One of the most important things you need to consider is the placement based on the size of your property. Of course, the shape of your yard can have a bearing as well, but in most cases, positioning your pool close to your home will be the most suitable choice. This is simply because a decent-sized pool will take up the majority of any small backyard.
In these circumstances, a round or oval pool may fit better within the space. This is specifically because a pool will often need to look as though it’s just another part of the house when it is in a small yard. Choosing a patio or deck to surround the pool that is similar in colour and style to the décor of your existing outdoor living space will therefore be necessary to create a cohesive outdoor oasis.
If you have a large yard, you have much greater flexibility in your approach to a pool design. You really don’t need to consider matching it to your home – the sky is the limit. If you’d rather have an atypical shape, you can do that. In fact, choosing tile to surround the pool that is very different from the home will define it as an entirely separate part of your yard, provided you choose to set it a distance away from your home.
If you would rather have your pool set close to the home in a large yard, then the same rules apply for outdoor design as they do with the small yard. Just remember, that the closer to the house, the more noise from the pool you’ll hear when you’re indoors!
