Thinking about adding a swimming pool to your backyard? There are a number of important elements that go into designing a backyard pool.

  1. Decking: Brick, concrete, pavers, and travertine are all durable and natural-looking decking options.
  2. Shape: There are generally two kinds of pool shapes – geometric and freeform. While both are beautiful, they each have a different look.
  3. Interior tile: Ceramic tile is a solid tile, while glass tile gives off more of a translucent appearance.
  4. Water features: If you’re looking for a way to add some depth to your pool, think about incorporating custom water features.
  5. Specialty lifestyle: A variety of special features like sun shelves and kiddie wading areas, as well as in-pool benches, seating, and tables.
  6. Landscaping: Grass, rocks, planters, trees, and shrubs can all enhance your poolscape.

Understanding the different components that make up your backyard pool will help you get a better feel for what it is you’re looking to incorporate into your custom pool. While it can be a daunting task piecing together the perfect backyard pool, working with someone who is dedicated to making the design process as seamless as possible makes a world of difference.
