  • Look for longevity: If you are living in an area, where the temperature goes high in summers, the quick installation times of fibreglass and vinyl-lined pools can be tempting.

However, adding additional features will increase your initial budget, but it is something which gives your pool a more aesthetic appearance.
  • Landscaping: One of the essential aspects, landscaping plays an important role in your swimming pool enjoyment. Think if you want palms shading you from the afternoon heat or a pebble border, not just to allow a peaceful and enjoyable moment but also to enhance the aesthetic pleasure of your pool. Consult without a landscape specialist to create a pretty, manageable—green space around your pool.

Ways to decide where you should put your pool

  • Sightlines: Check the view of the pool from inside the house and from other garden areas. It will help you to determine from where and from which angle your pool is looking more beautiful.
  • Adding accessories and lighting features will make it more attractive. If you have kids, please make sure that you can keep an eye on them from inside.
  • Sun exposure: Does the pool location maximize or minimize sun exposure? Do you have more trees around the pool? It may make it difficult for you to keep the pool clean from leaves and all.
  • Wind exposure: Wind can cool the water and increase evaporation.
  • Accessibility: think about the entrance and exit of the pool and where will you hang out around the pool?
  • Storage: Where will you keep the filtration equipment, pool cleaner, toys and sun umbrellas?
