Backyard Makeovers: Why You Should Consider One
It may seem as though you’ve just winterized your yard, but winter will be over sooner than you think. Even now, it’s not too soon to consider a full backyard makeover. If your house and yard are aging, you have trouble spots, or you simply want to make the outdoors more inviting, Pools of Fun offers a few key suggestions.
Build a Pool or Add to One
As our company name indicates, we are passionate about pools and the opportunities they provide for relaxing and bonding with your family and friends. If you don’t have a pool, consider adding one to your yard or deck this year. Studies show pools can increase a home’s real estate value and add an upscale feel to the average rural or suburban location. At Pools of Fun, we offer many designs, including traditional round, oblong, or kidney-shaped pools to pools with infinity edges or pools with built-in or connected spas and hot tubs.
If you already own a pool, consider adding extra features to make it stand out. Some of our popular features include swim-up bars – great for pool and spa parties – as well as fountains, floating islands, sloping beach entries, and unique pool tile designs. Consult one of our staff members today about the features that appeal to you most.
Tend the Garden
One of the biggest attractions in a backyard is the garden, so make the most of it. Plant flowers or aromatic herbs around your pool and the surrounding area to create a tropical outdoor feel. Zinnias, anemones, raspberry bee balm, and fritillaria are all great choices because they attract hummingbirds and butterflies. Add to your garden’s aesthetic appeal with new wall designs, a cobblestone or brick pathway, or a new wooden fence or gate. For extra appeal, consider having your garden pathway lead directly toward your pool or spa.
Delight in the Deck
The deck, often the background for your pool or spa, can serve as much more. If you haven’t built a deck, consider one – they’re great spots for reading, relaxing, or enjoying a meal or drinks. A deck in need of a facelift will be transformed simply by adding a small gazebo near your pool or spa providing shade and an extra shot of luxury. Elegant railings in wrought iron or polished wood are also good updates. Consider adding large umbrellas or awnings for shade and privacy on hot summer days.
