Backyard Ideas And Poolscapes2

Are you looking for backyard ideas and poolscapes to level up your backyard?  Summertime is here and it’s time to enjoy those long summer nights while being in the comforts of your home.

One refreshing way to enjoy your backyard and beat the heat is to take a dip in a swimming pool. Today’s in-ground pools go way beyond the turquoise-lined rectangular shapes that quickly began to populate backyards.  Many people now want poolscapes with built-in waterfalls, surrounding gardens, and organic shapes making your pool a beautiful element added to your backyard landscape.

What is a Poolscape?

A poolscape is simply the landscape surrounding any pool, along with the shape and the type of pool itself. There are a plethora of options when it comes to the general design and within each theme even more options for the type of greenery and other decorative items you may want. You can choose to play a hand in the design of the poolscape yourself, higher a professional designer, or rely on the expertise of a contractor. No matter how you choose to design your pool, it is essential you hire a professional to put it all together.  People use combinations of these ideas below along with all kinds of greenery.

Backyard Ideas And Poolscapes

You May be Wondering What Is Right For Me?

The right type of poolscape all depends on personal preference; however, there are some things to keep in mind. First is the size of your yard which, may limit your options. Next is the type of ground you have on your property because it determines the amount of work it will take to create the look you want,  For instance, areas with the hard ground or desert areas may be more expensive when it comes to installing a lot of greenery or a tropical setting because it is dryer and the ground is harder.

What Type of Features Do You Want?

There are many options like waterfalls, ponds, and fountains to choose from to mention a few popular ones. The actual shape of the pool is a consideration too. Some backyard ideas and poolscapes may look better with a rectangular design, others will compliment curved pools.

Before choosing the style you like you will want to look at plenty of examples, catalogs, and websites. Remember, once construction is underway it might be difficult to change your mind.

How much will it cost?

Price really will vary, whatever you spend, you can be sure that a great design will improve the value of your home and will improve the quality of your time spent in the backyard.

Why do I need a contractor?

A contractor is essential for a large job.  Doing the job the right way the first time will ensure a backyard you can be proud of. Many of the features may be difficult for one not familiar and experienced with creating poolscapes, meaning not hiring a professional can take much longer and can even become more expensive in wasted time and resources.

Gunite pool and travertine patio East Islip NY

Gunite pool and travertine patio East Islip NY  We completed this project about 4years ago. We installed a new gunite pool 16×36 with a bluestone coping, auto cover and a fiorito travertine patio. The pool has a sundeck.  We have lined the steps edges with glass tiles. You can see they reflect light from one side. The pool is a sports pool. The deep end of the pool is the center. This side we have corner stairs. There is a bar area with stools inside the pool. In the lower patio area, chairs can be used as stools on the outside.  This is a sunken fire pit area with a bench and gas fire pit. On this we have a semi raised patio. The property slopes so the pool was built a step down from the original house patio. This is a gas fire pit used more as an accent and this is also a sitting area. The property sits on a beautiful lake. The house is about 100 years old.  We faced the walls of the pool to match the original bricks of the house to make it look like it’s been here as long as the house has been here.
