When the Covid-19 pandemic first gripped the world in 2020, it saw a massive cancellation of holiday flights and bookings. On the other hand, the pandemic drove demand for backyard pools and spas as more people opted to build their oasis in the comfort of their own homes.
Whatever the reason for installing an inground pool in your backyard, it’s going to be one of the most significant decisions you’ll make. It will improve the value of your property and, of course, it will provide relaxation and fun for family and friends – anytime you want. As inground pools are regarded as investments, it’s a great idea to install automatic pool covers in Tracy to be maintained and protected.
A backyard pool is always a good idea to start building your oasis. When considering an aesthetic for your pool landscaping, you’ll be limited by a few things – your imagination, the size of your backyard, your area’s geography and climate, and your budget.
For instance, you wish to recreate a tropical paradise from your last Caribbean beach vacation. You can quickly achieve this with the warm Mediterranean-type California climate. However, you’ll find it challenging to live in temperate regions, as palm trees and warm-weather plants and flowers may not thrive in cold climates. Instead, look for natural materials and bright colors that mirror what you’d find in a tropical resort. Consider elements that scream “tropical” or “exotic,” such as Tiki torches, a hammock, a poolside shade, or a small Tiki bar with thatched straw roofing.
Are you missing camping out among the tall pine trees, roasting marshmallows over the campfire, and dipping in a nearby lake? You can also recreate the “great outdoors” look in your backyard pool area. Pitch a sturdy backyard tent and create a teepee for the kids. It’s also a great idea to build a fire pit in the backyard, with garden chairs surrounding it – after all, you can’t roast s’mores without it. Keep the fire contained safely; it’s best to use a sturdy flagstone fire pit to keep you warm after a nightly dip at the pool. Hang string lights that will add a magical touch to your “backyard campsite.”
No matter which type of landscape you choose, add as many greens as possible. Green is good for your health and overall well-being. There’s nothing like abundant greenery to elevate your pool deck’s appearance. However, ensure that the plants are far enough from the pool area so that rain showers won’t wash mulch into it.
If your pool is vast enough (and your budget allows it), you can add floating stepping stones to the pool or install a poolside grotto with waterfalls.
These are only a few suggestions on how to elevate your backyard pool area into your mini-vacation paradise. Of course, there are hundreds of other ways to give your pool backyard area an oasis-like feel.
But no matter how beautiful or spectacular you want your backyard oasis to be, don’t forget its main attraction – the swimming pool itself. To enjoy your time in the pool longer, you must do regular cleaning and maintenance. Automatic pool covers in Tracy will give additional protection to your swimming pool against dirt, debris, and water loss due to evaporation and act as a security feature against drowning.
