Investing in the perfect backyard for your home will benefit your health and wellbeing in more ways than you could imagine.

Investing in the perfect backyard for your home will benefit your health and wellbeing in more ways than you could imagine. Many people know that having a swimming pool in College Station, Texas will be a blast, but the full spectrum of opportunities that a great backyard provides is not always apparent until you begin to plan your space. Some homeowners are intimidated by this process—they wonder what proper steps there are to take and if they are making choices that will give them an outdoor space that they will enjoy long-term.

Luckily, when you choose the right pool builder for your family, planning your backyard is a breeze. An experienced builder of Brazos Valley pools, such as Sunshine Fun Pools, will know the landscape of your area and be up to date on the latest technology. Since the outdoor space design industry is always evolving, having access to trending ideas and great tips will be highly beneficial. Once you make some basic choices on what you and your family would like to include in your backyard, your builder can help to guide you in the right direction to complete your dream. Here are some tips for planning the perfect backyard for you.

How Will You Use Your Pool?

Though the answer might be obvious—swimming, of course—a pool can have many different functions. For instance, if you enjoy entertaining guests regularly, or would like to make use of your outdoor space in this way, you will want to be sure to factor this function in when planning your backyard. You might consider including multiple decks for seating or places that your guests can gather to eat or socialize. Since the Texas heat is not forgiving for most of the year, shade should also be considered. Other great additions for a highly functional backyard are an outdoor kitchen, fire pit or custom spa.  

Your backyard space can also be used geared towards other uses besides hosting dinners or backyard barbeques. Some backyards have been transformed into personal waterparks for children while others are focused on making memories with hours of family fun. You could avoid going to the gym by building your own fitness center right in your outdoor space. There really is no limit to what you can do with a backyard.

Have Fun with Your Design

While many of the basic details will be determined once you have decided how you would like to use your pool, there are some “small” details to consider beyond your basic choices. While these additions do not necessarily alter the logistics, they are what add character and charm to your outdoor space. If you have always wanted an outdoor oasis, now is your chance. You will have the option to add fountains, waterfalls, fire features and/or light effects to your outdoor space. Your pool could be dramatic with vanishing edges or appear as if it were a natural formation by adding rock designs and plant foliage.

The shape of your pool can also be unique. Homeowners are encouraged to choose a shape that will positively influence the flow of their backyard and will not compromise the integrity of its function. Of course, you can always opt for a beautiful, streamlined design that is a basic geometric shape, or you could create a new shape that is all your own. Bean shaped pools are another popular choice with homeowners who are building their first College Station pool.

Maintaining Your Outdoor Space

An additional factor that must be taken into consideration when you are planning your perfect backyard is maintenance. Advancements in modern technology have made it easier than ever before to own a custom swimming pool. Hayward Pool Equipment, which is used by Sunshine Fun Pools, offers pool owners the most ecological, economic and user friendly options for pool equipment. Your pool builder can recommend native Texas plants to use in your outdoor space that will look beautiful and require little maintenance. If you were previously discouraged from remodeling your backyard and adding a custom pool due to the work that it would take to keep it all up, speak to your pool builder about how you can make pool ownership easier.
