The days are getting shorter and the temperatures are dropping, meaning that many of us will be spending less time in the backyard and more time indoors. Because your outdoor living area will be seeing less action, this makes it the perfect time to make those major or minor improvements to your backyard oasis.
Re-Do the Pool Deck
Tired of the outdated broom-finished concrete surrounding your pool? Consider renovating your pool deck. Replacing your old pool deck can completely transform the appearance of your backyard, and it will enhance the atmosphere of your outdoor living area.Pavered designs are a popular choice, although stamped concrete and natural stone decks can also deliver beautiful results. Integrating concrete and wood together can be visually stunning, adding brand new curves to your pool.
Add Fire Features
The inclusion of fire features such as fire pits, fire bowls and tiki torches not only warm up the cool night air, they also add a whole new ambiance to those relaxing evening swims in the pool and nights in the spa. If you live in an area where you can still host backyard barbeques in the fall and winter, your guests will appreciate having a fire feature to gather around and enjoy.
Re-Shape Your Pool
No longer do pool owners need to be stuck with the same old rectangular or oval shaped pool that was built 10 to 20 years ago. You now have the option of adding length, width and curves to your pool to create the poolscape of your dreams.
Add a Slide
Kids and adults alike love slipping down a pool slide. A pool construction company will help you plot out the deck space and the depth necessary for you to add the slide of your choice.
