Thinking About Adding a Pool to Your Property? Start Planning Now! February 5, 2021
From enhancing the beauty of your property to creating a gathering space where you can relax with family and friends, a backyard swimming pool can enrich your life in numerous ways. If you are thinking about building a pool in the future, but aren’t quite ready to begin the process yet, keep in mind that it’s never too early to start planning.
At Aqua Pool & Patio, we are here to help guide you through the process of planning, designing, and building a pool, regardless of when you think you may be ready to start construction. We will learn about your goals and can make recommendations to assist you with the decision-making process. If, for example, you’d like to be swimming in 2022, here are a few steps that you may want to begin taking now:
- Preparing your backyard for pool construction. Building an inground pool is a significant transformation of your yard, and there are often several steps involved in getting the land ready for construction. For example, you will want to: check your local zoning and setback laws to determine how large your pool can be and where you’ll be able to locate it; check where your utility lines are located and reroute them if need be; remove rocks, trees, and other vegetation from the area where your pool will be built; and perform any grading needed to make the ground level.
- Gathering design ideas. Since gunite pools—our specialty at Aqua Pool—are hand-built onsite, they can be customized to suit any size, shape, or style. Therefore, if you are considering this type of pool for your property, your design options are virtually endless. As you approach the pool-building process, it’s never too early to start thinking about your ideal style and which added features you’d like to include. For example, if you would like features such as a vanishing edge, an attached spa, or a built-in slide, it’s important to start planning for them early in the design process. You’ll also want to consider the various surfacing options available and whether you’d prefer a freeform or geometric-shaped pool.

- Considering options for financing. Building an inground pool is a major investment, and you may be wondering how you’ll be able to afford it. While the final cost of your pool can vary based on several different factors, the good news is that by working with our preferred lenders, it is possible to build the pool of your dreams for little to no money down and reasonable monthly payments. Understanding your options for financing early in the pool-building process can influence the design and added features you choose.
