How a Custom Swimming Pool will Turn Your Backyard into an Oasis
Jun 29, 2021
Transform your backyard into an oasis with a custom swimming pool.
In recent years, swimming pool designs have become so lavish and detailed that there’s basically no limit to what you can accomplish. Many homeowners have the dream of turning their simple backyard into an incredibly designed backyard oasis with a pool as its centerpiece.
Here are some of the features that will help make this a reality:
If you want to make a true impact in creating an oasis in your backyard, then you’ll need to consider landscaping design options. Popular examples of pool landscaping include a nearby vegetable garden or flower garden. Both of these will set the mood and act as a base from which you can add other design elements. Trees and bushes will work wonders, too.
Some of the best pool features for a backyard oasis are water structures. Even a small backyard will typically have enough room for a reasonably sized fountain, for instance. If you own a larger property, then you may want to add a pond, which can have numerous design elements of its own such as a small bridge, lily pads, fish, and more.
Small Fire Pit
Even though Florida winters don’t get unbearably cold, many homeowners in Tampa and other parts of the state have made a fire pit part of their backyard oasis. Not only is this the perfect place for friends and family to hang out whether the fire is roaring or not, but fire pits also look great. They come in multiple designs and can be customized to your liking.
LED Pool Lights
The installation of LED lighting is an excellent way to enhance your property’s landscape. Pool lights come in a variety of styles and colors, which will make it easier for you to imitate the feel and appearance of a tropical oasis. You can even hang lights from above the pool’s deck or add underwater lighting for a more unique look.
In order to achieve the look of an oasis, you’ll need plenty of greenery. However, your backyard may not have a lot of room for huge patches of grass. If that’s the case, then you can put in a small amount of synthetic turf to fill in any gaps. Or you can cover larger areas and not need to worry about lawn maintenance.
Many homeowners opt for decorative stones to accent traditional grassy landscapes because they’re low maintenance and look fantastic. These stones are a wonderful way to give your backyard oasis a unique appearance and personality. You’ll have plenty of types to choose from such as crushed stone, river rocks, pea gravel, white marble chips, and several others.
