Installing a pool isn’t a split-second decision, and planning your pool shouldn’t be, either. To build a pool and surrounding hardscape area that you and your family will enjoy for years, you should take your time, plan carefully, and work with experts who can help you build the pool of your dreams.
Why You Should Plan Your Pool Build Carefully
There are a lot of different factors that you need to take into consideration when planning a pool build. One of the reasons you need to plan in advance is to make sure you are planning on putting your pool in the right spot for the terrain on your property. Choosing the right place for your pool means that you will have to think about things like:
- The architectural style of your home.
- The size of your yard and property.
- The natural elements like trees or rocks that are in your backyard.
- The area surrounding your property. Is there a nature preserve? A park
- How far will the pool be from the neighbors’ properties
- The type of soil in the yard.
- The slope of your yard.
- What size pool do you want, and what size will fit best into the yard that you have
- What pool designs will work best with the style of your home.
It’s always best to work with an experienced landscape architect and pool designer to address these issues during the planning phase so that you don’t encounter problems during the actual pool construction. Some other reasons why you should plan your pool build are:
Permits And Regulations
In most places, homeowners must get permits from the city or town to install a pool on their property. You may need to submit pool plans, soil samples, engineering reports, property maps, and more to the city or town to get a permit. You must show that your proposed pool build meets all city regulations. If you live in an HOA neighborhood, you may also have to get approval from the HOA. All of this can take time, and you must have a pool build plan to show the city or your HOA.
Pool Installation Times And Availability
There is a limited time during the year when professionals can install a pool because of the amount of work that goes into pool construction. Demand is high, so homeowners must have a well-planned pool built and ready to go when pool installation experts are ready to start. If the crew has to wait while you get permits, make changes to the design, or run into other roadblocks that stop construction, you could lose out on the chance to get your pool installed.
