How to have a pool in a small yard

Have you worried that your yard is too small for a swimming pool? How to have a pool in a small yard is one of the questions the swimming pool contractors from Best Pro Pool Service in Atwater, California answer all the time.

You don’t need to have a huge yard to have a swimming pool. In fact, if you have a small yard you can still keep some yard space AND have a swimming pool. That’s the best of both worlds, right?

Because swimming pools so many shapes and sizes you will be able to find one that is ideal for the space you have available and that you want to devote to the pool project.

How to have a pool in a small yard

  1. A small pool in a small yard is intimate. A small inground swimming pool or a large hot tub or spa provides a cozy, perhaps secluded space, for your pool and for relaxing poolside. If you have a small yard, having your pool constructed next to your home or your existing patio utilizes the yard while giving you a pool.

  2. A small swimming pool will cost less than a large pool and that might mean you will have more money to add accessories or luxury items. You might be able to spend more money on the poolside deck area, for example.

  3. If you are looking for a pool more for exercise than entertaining, a lap pool is an ideal decision. Lap pools are long and thin. If you’re only devoting a thin strip of land to the pool you will leave more space available for the yard. Don’t despair and think that a lap pool isn’t ideal for entertaining, because it is. Your guests may not be able to play volleyball, but they can certainly jump in and enjoy themselves.
