INSPIRATION


Backyard Pool and Spa Designs

No matter its size, your back yard can be the ideal setting for enjoying a summer afternoon or romantic evening. Adding a custom pool and spa to the mix is one great way to maximize your outdoor time, but it’s important to incorporate safety measures if your pool could be accessed by children. Whether you’re starting from scratch or thinking about an overhaul, these ideas are guaranteed to have you calling your local contractor.


The Pool

  • If you live on a hill or large slope, consider an infinity pool and spa. You’ll feel like you’re swimming off into the sunset — or at least like you’re sitting on the edge of a cliff.
  • For the days when you might want to lounge but not submerge yourself, we recommend adding an ankle-deep ledge with built-in or moveable lounge chairs. It’s the ultimate way to relax and stay cool.
  • You’re going to need shade, and you also need a place to hang your Séura Outdoor TV. If you’re into the modern look, we love this dramatic pool house and cantilevered overhang.

Playing it Safe

With pool and spa ownership comes the responsibility to keep others safe. Before you dive in, please consider the following tips and information.

  • Teach kids to swim. It’s the tip that makes the most sense, and it’s the simplest. Learning to swim isn’t just about passing time and keeping cool — it’s a lifesaving skill.
  • Designate a water watcher. When children are swimming they should be supervised, and the person watching them should be focused on the water — not on a book or phone. If several adults are present, work in shifts.
  • Install barriers and fences. Know the rules of your municipality, and realize pool safety is important even if you don’t have kids. Fences and safety nets are your best bet, and you don’t have to skimp on style.

The Foliage

Your space is made complete by the poolside plantings you choose. Here are some basic ideas to transform your area into a true outdoor oasis. Don’t forget to find what best suits your climate.

  • Build in planters. Consider mixing in small magnolia trees, which thrive in full sun, and low-to-the-ground darker foliage.
  • Don’t forget the color. Add in climbing or trailing foliage with colorful flower blossoms.  Plus, filling your space with flowers fills the surrounding air with fragrance.
  • Use pollinator-friendly plantings. Support native birds and insects by installing plants and flowers like sedum, wild bergamot, blue-green Weber’s agave, lavender, or hyssop.
