What are the three types of inground pools?
Concrete pools allow the pool of your dreams to become a reality due to the ease of building a custom design.
Fiberglass pools are one-piece shells that come in a wide variety of models, including infinity edges.
Vinyl pools are ideal for any location, including freeze/thaw climates, and with proper care, a liner can last 10 to 15 years
Can I be green and eco-friendly if I own a pool?
Which pool shape is right for me?
Rectangular designs are perfect for people wanting a classic, timeless look. They’re also great for games and swimming laps. Kidney and free-form swimming pools can blend with the surrounding vegetation and lend themselves to waterfalls and grottos.
What else do I need besides the pool?
Safety first – You’ll need to meet code requirements, of course. But child-proof locks, water-entry alarms, and other security features are items to think about. Your homeowner’s Insurance will need to be updated as well.
Coping, tile borders, and decking help to make your pool more enjoyable. Concrete, stone, ceramic, or glass tile are all options that you may wish to make part of your pool design.
Plantings – the right plantings help your pool fit into the surroundings. Avoid planting messy trees (maples, sycamores) or trees with far-reaching, shallow root systems (birches, cypress) near your swimming pool. Trees can also block the sun as they grow. Design plantings that will enhance the space and not add to pool maintenance.
