When the weather outside is beautiful, as it usually is in central Texas, there really is no reason for you to miss out on a place outside of the home that you can enjoy. Backyards are the best place to create a space that is an extension of your life inside the house. You can turn it into anything you want it to be and Varsity Pools can help you with it. There has never been a better time, or a better opportunity to have a professional construct a pool area that is suitable for all your needs.

Pool Construction Ideas for Adding Fun to Your Backyard

A Relaxing Pool Area

Pools are ideal places to relax. Many people sit for hours on a floating lounge to read or cool off on hot summer days. You can take it to the next level of relaxation by adding new features to an already existing pool or by custom building a pool that meets your needs. Pool lighting is a great way to get ambiance around the pool during the night, but during the daytime they are less noticeable. Why not have stone pillars with umbrellas put into the pool’s shallow end or on the deck so that you can hang a hammock without relying on trees? A custom pool designer may be able to put chaise lounges inside of the pool on the shallow end using concrete. For landscaping around the pool, you can add privacy fences, shrubs, and more to block out noise from nearby neighbors or roads.

Party at the Pool

Swimming pool areas are ideal for creating a great party space. If you have a covered area on your patio, hanging lights can make things more fun. Outdoor speakers will allow you have music playing throughout your entire party. An open bar, perhaps built-in near the pool’s edge can give you a place to store beverages and snacks. You can also have the complete outdoor kitchen setup, complete with a nearby fire pit. Imagine being able to sit around the fire pit while eating your tasty feast. To make it kid friendly, you simply need to add in a slide or a diving board. You can also put up a swing nearby if you have the space for it.

Cozy Retreats

You may not think of a pool area as a retreat, but with a little effort it can exceed all your expectations. Even if you have a small yard, you can still create the illusion of a hidden paradise. If you are building a pool area from scratch, you may opt to go with a less traditional pool. You can then use landscaping tricks to enhance it. For instance, a small round pool construction that has a rock wall, perhaps with a water feature on one side. You can plant tropical flowers and trees around the wall or perhaps turn it into a unique spice garden.
