Why You Need to Plan Your Pool Design Way in Advance

Every season in Vail is a good season to be outside. Summer activities include hiking, biking, paddleboarding, and rock climbing. The best summer activity is swimming in a custom-designed backyard pool with friends and family. 

To get your backyard summer ready, begin your pool design with Maximum Comfort Pool & Spa now. Here is why you need to plan your pool design way in advance of summer. 

Pool Design & Lawn Terrain

This infinity-edge pool design takes advantage of the Colorado mountain view.

In the central Rockies, we are defined by the mountains around us. Many homes are on slopes or mountainsides, and our soil contains pieces of continental crust over 1 billion years old. The “Rocky” Mountains got their name for a good reason. 

Before a pool design can be created, you must get the lay of your land. Some questions to consider are: 

  • What is the architectural style of my home? 
  • How big is my yard? 
  • What natural elements are in my backyard? 
  • Is my property adjacent to a nature preserve? 
  • What type of soil is in my yard? 
  • Am I on a slope? 
  • How close are my neighbors? 
  • What size pool does my family need and will it fit in my backyard?
  • What type of pool design will blend with my home’s style and showcase my backyard? 

The answers to these questions will help inform your pool design and the elements that will accent your pool. 

The answers will also determine an estimated timeline for your pool build and pool installation.  

Pool Design Styles

This custom natural pool design fits into the backyard landscape.

Now, that you have a lay of your land, you get to think about the fun stuff. Your choices in custom pool design are plentiful. 

An architectural style pool utilizes geometric shapes and clean, sophisticated lines, and they echo the architecture of your home. Whereas a natural, free-form pool uses curves and mimics the look of a pond. They are designed to fit into the natural landscape around your home. 

If your home has a spectacular view, don’t let your pool cover it up. An infinity-edge pool highlights your view and gives the illusion of water falling over the edge of your property.

Once you’ve discovered your pool style, complete your outdoor design with hardscapes such as patios, walkways, retaining walls, and grill surrounds. Also, consider wellness lifestyle additions to your backyard oasis with a swim spa or sauna. And finally, additional features such as lighting, water features, landscaping, and the right patio furniture add ambiance and tranquility to your outdoor living space.

If all of this makes you feel overwhelmed, don’t worry. At Maximum Comfort Pool & Spa, we have an in-house architect and design team ready to take care of your every need! We even offer a free in-home consultation to help you pick the perfect location and layout for your pool design.

The size of your custom pool design along with any additional features, hardscaping, or excavation surprises will all affect the timeline of the pool installation. 

Keep in mind a pool build is a major construction project requiring lots of loud machines on your property. And sometimes unforeseen items are unearthed such as old concrete slabs, difficult rock, or groundwater. Rainy weather can also cause delays.
