Shasta offers a variety of pool shapes and sizes, but every body loves the opportunity to come up with pool ideas for a big backyard. Large Arizona backyards offer plenty of landscaping opportunities, but sometimes all of that extra space can make it extra challenging for homeowners to decide just what to do. Below are three of our top pool ideas for anyone who owns a big piece of land and who just isn’t quite sure what to do with it:

1. Add a Perimeter Overflow Spa

If you have the space, then why not treat yourself to an outdoor spa? One of the hottest features that you’ll be seeing in many pictures of pools in 2015 are raised perimeter overflow spas. Unlike the infinity edge, water spills from all four sides of this style of spa, giving the waters a glassy, serene appearance. Place a couple of fire bowls nearby and you have yourself a blazing hot spot to warm yourself up in on even the chilliest of winter evenings.

2. Mosaic Tile Inserts

Customize your pool with tile inserts that are sure to catch your guests eye. You can choose from a variety of insert choices that can transform your pool into your own backyard ocean with a fun dolphin or coral scene. If you have a more classic or contemporary pool shape or theme happening in your backyard choose from contemporary mosaic design to add an aesthetic appeal to the bottom of your pool. And if you’re feeling really creative, come up with your own! You can put your favorite sports team logo or your family initial to make your pool personal.

3. Tie It In with Water Features

As some pool lovers may have noticed, many pools have incorporated a number water features to add an interesting look and catch the eye. More natural pools often feature waterfalls and grottos or bubbling water fountains. Other designs may include fountains of varying features that match the architecture and theme of the home and pool, like over lapping streams from deck jets. When well placed, your backyard can’t help but transform itself into a private oasis.
