4 Questions to Consider as You Prepare for a Pool Installation
With so many sizes, shapes, and additional features to choose from, there are many factors to consider before installing a new pool in your outdoor space this year!

While the weather outside may be chilly, February is the perfect time to plan for your new pool installation. With so many sizes, shapes, and additional features to choose from, there are many factors to consider before installing a new pool in your outdoor space this year! As you are planning for your new pool, consider these important questions that will help you to determine which pool is the best choice for you and your family.

What is the Main Purpose of Your Pool?

For many families, a new pool will be a space to entertain guests and enjoy time outdoors at home. However, it is essential to determine the primary purpose of your pool to accommodate the future needs of your family. Consider whether or not your future pool will be a place to exercise, lounge, or enjoy a leisurely swim. This consideration will help you to choose the best choice for the future.

Which Size Pool Will Fit Best in Your Yard?

As you plan your early spring pool installation, it is crucial to consider which size pool will fit best in your yard. If you prefer that your new pool is the center of your landscape, a larger pool may be the best choice for your family and future guests. If you prefer that your pool is cornered as only a fraction of your landscape, a smaller pool may be the best fit for your property.  The designer will assist you in choosing the proper spot and size for your pool.

Which Shape Works Best in Your Landscape?

Consider the overall shape and size of your yard. Which shape pool will best complement the shape of your property? Are there any additional structures or features that will be framing your pool design? By taking the look of your new pool into consideration, you can easily choose a pool shape that is perfect for the needs of your family and the look of your yard throughout the year. You must also consider when choosing a location if there are any erosion issues or any topographical issues that could interfere with the pool.  If there are severe drops in elevation on your property you may have to build up property or add retaining walls to ensure the pool will stay in place.

Will You Incorporate Additional Features with Your Pool Design?

In addition to their pool installation, many families will take this opportunity to build out an outdoor entertainment space for their family and friends to enjoy throughout the year. Whether you are looking to add a waterslide, a poolside pavilion, or an outdoor kitchen, it is essential to consider the potential for additional features in the future.   At the planning stages is the best time to plan your pool and features. Plan the new pool with all of the features you would like to have. The budget will determine what you can install immediately but it is best to have a complete plan so that when you are ready to install additional features the design is already in place and it should flow seamlessly into your pool installation.  It is not uncommon for these features to be installed in stages based on budgetary constraints.
