Pool Design Ideas for Small Backyards in Austin
When you have a small backyard you can feel restricted with what you can do in your outdoor living space. Having a pool in your backyard might even seem impossible. With these pool ideas you can find a great design for even the smallest of backyards.
Maintaining a beautiful backyard can be somewhat of a task. If you install a pool in your backyard, surrounding the pool with wood decking can cut back on maintenance like mowing the lawn. It adds a crisp, clean feeling to your outdoor space.
Adding a natural pool landscaping design can allow you to transform your outdoor space into your very own oasis. Features such as boulders and waterfalls create a visually pleasing space that’s also fun for kids.
Who doesn’t want a personal spa? Adding a water feature can enhance your pool experience even if the size of your pool is significantly smaller. Add a waterfall and mosaic feature to escape into your very own spa day every day.
When it comes to working with a small space, you can be creative with the shape of your pool. If your yard wraps around your house, your pool could as well. Look into an L shaped pool or customize your pool form exactly the way you want it.
Narrow Lap Pool
A good option for a small backyard pool is a narrow lap pool. The narrow pool will elongate your backyard and make your outdoor space seem bigger. You can put the pool right against a fence line to create more space to experiment with other aspects of your backyard.
