Spring is almost here and the flowers are about to bloom, inspiring homeowners across Arizona to come up with new ways to dress up their pool and patio this season. These backyard pool ideas are some of the best that we’ve seen from homeowners of patios with pools.

Creative Seating by the Pool

Coming up with custom and creative seating is going to be one of the most popular backyard pool ideas this Spring. Social media sites that are driven by crafty individuals are inspiring homeowners to come up with their own neat seating ideas for around their pool- patios and porches such as benches that encircle trees, seating crafted from wooden crates, or lounges being built into large flower boxes and beds.

Poolside Dining

For homeowners who enjoy al fresco dining, creating a comfortable poolside dining area is a must. To make the most of your dining area:

  • Include a dining table that will be large enough to accommodate your family and a few guests
  • Create protection from the elements (this can be as simple as building a pergola)
  • Consider adding heating elements so you can still enjoy your dining area on cooler spring evenings

Unusual Water Features

There will always be a place for waterfalls, spouts and scuppers, but unique water features are shaping up to be a popular choice for the Spring. Think buckets of water dumping into spillways or items that reflect a homeowner’s personality or hobbies being used as a water feature, such as a spouting saxophone. The great thing about working with a custom pool builder is that we can take your creativity and work with it to give you exactly what you want for your backyard.
