Are you thinking of installing a pool this spring? Installing a pool in your backyard offers a great many benefits for your family life and your home. It offers the perfect place to entertain, and helps create the ultimate backyard oasis for you to escape to with your loved ones after a long day.
While the pool itself is, of course, the main event, there are many other factors to consider in completing your dream of the ultimate backyard pool area. Below are just a few factors to consider before springtime when the work begins!
Interlock can be a great option for creating a beautiful backyard living space. If you are thinking about installing an inground pool, interlock can be a wonderful way to finish off the sides of the pool for a luxurious, modern look.
Interlock can provide a nice frame for the pool area in a grassy backyard, or it can spread further throughout more of the backyard for low-maintenance outdoor living all spring and summer long. With so many different types of interlock, and never-ending design potential, the options with backyard interlock are endless!
For safety reasons, the City of Ottawa (and many other cities) require you to install a fence around any pool of outdoor water on your property. This helps prevent unwarranted access to your pool that could lead to an accident. But just because you need to have a pool enclosure, doesn’t mean you have to compromise on the design of your backyard.
There are so many different types of fences to choose from when it comes to pool enclosures. You could opt for wood fencing, aluminum fencing, PVC fencing, vinyl fencing, wrought iron fencing – even bamboo fencing! Another popular option for a modern backyard design is to incorporate a frameless or semi-frameless glass fence.
Once you have your pool installed, the next step to completing your beautiful backyard oasis is the landscaping! Perhaps some shrubbery and tall bushes to provide privacy from the neighbours. You could also consider building a nice garden and flower display to add a pop of colour to your backyard – perhaps even a small vegetable garden to take advantage of fresh produce this summer!
