An Outdoor Fireplace Can Help You Enjoy Your Lawn All Year Long

Right now, when you think about spending time outdoors, you might think about doing so during the spring and summer. You might really look forward to when the weather warms up and you’re able to spend more time in your outdoor living space, but the good news is that you can quite easily start enjoying your lawn for much more of the year. To do so, consider installing an outdoor fireplace.

An Outdoor Fireplace Can Help You Enjoy Your Lawn All Year Long

First of all, an outdoor fireplace can look great and can help you set the mood in your outdoor living space. This is not the only benefit, however. For those who would love to be able to enjoy the crisp fall nights and even the winter weather from the comfort of the outdoors, an outdoor fireplace can be a lifesaver.

With an outdoor fireplace, you can quickly warm up your outdoor living space and make it a whole lot cozier. This means that you don’t have to stop hanging out or entertaining outdoors just because the temperatures drop a little bit. Instead, you can fire up your outdoor fireplace to make your outdoor living space a whole lot warmer.

If you feel as if you aren’t enjoying your outdoor living space as much as you should be and if you’d love to start spending more time outdoors all year long, contact us at Varsity Pools. Not only can we help you create an outdoor living space that you can enjoy during the warm months, but we can also help you make changes to help you and your family enjoy the outdoors during the cooler months as well.

Make Repairs to Your Backyard Winter Wonderland

The winter solstice just passed. Even here in Texas, that probably means it’s unpleasantly chilly outside every other week. It’s a far cry from the blistering summer days when nothing sounds better than relaxing outside in a pool. But that means now is the best time to start thinking about installing that pool you wanted just a few months ago. Winter is the perfect time for making pool repairs or getting started on pool construction to your backyard winter wonderland.

Make Repairs to Your Backyard Winter Wonderland

  • You’ll have a brand new inground pool just in time for spring. Inground pools can take time to install, especially with the rough Central Texas soil. Start your project in the winter so you have plenty of time to pick the design you want, have the landscape really take root, and anticipate the refreshing pool you’ll have in your backyard when that blistering weather returns.
  • You can add elements to your backyard retreat that are enjoyable year-round. Even if the weather is a bit too chilly for a pool, that just means it’s the perfect weather to enjoy a backyard fireplace or fire pit. Depending on the size and style you have in mind, these features can be installed quickly so you and your family can enjoy an outdoor cup of warm cocoa around the fire.
  • You can more easily fix the damage and add features. No one wants to have to drain their pool for a lengthy repair project in the middle of winter. So if you noticed cracks or leaks, or you want to add new features to your pool, schedule them for winter. Our specialists can easily assess and repair the damage without any interruption to your pool schedule.

In winter, a swimming pool might be the furthest thing from your mind. But that just makes it the best time to add features, make repairs, and really consider installing a new pool.
