Mark Your Calendar! August is the best time of the year to work on Inground Pool Landscaping

Whether you already have an inground pool and are looking to enhance your backyard space or you are planning to have an inground swimming pool installed, planning the landscape around your pool design will pay off big time. There is nothing better than feeling like you are on vacation every time you swim in your own backyard swimming pool. Think of your swimming pool as the focal point and build out from there. You have so many choices to enhance the functionality and aesthetics of your backyard oasis.

Our team at Aqua Fun can help you decide what type of landscaping would best suit your backyard needs. The design includes hardscape concrete border, decking, patio, recreational add-on’s, tree’s, shrubs and flowering plants. Be sure to check out our Pool Gallery to see examples.

August is a good time to work on your inground pool landscaping. It’s a great month to prepare the soil for adding fall plants. It’s important to clean up all debris and mix in fertilizer or compost before you start preparing your perennial flower beds, it’s not too late to prepare the flowers for next spring. August is also the time to plant bulbs for a large array of beautiful lilies.

Things to consider when designing your swimming pool and backyard pool landscaping are what kind of lounge chairs and umbrella tables will you add to the mix? There is so much to consider and it may get overwhelming trying to figure it all out. If this is you then have no fear, the design team at Aqua Fun Inc. will be able to take care of this for you.

Did you get a chance to check out our End Of Summer Pool Party Blog? We think you’ll have a lot of fun with it.

All of us here at Aqua Fun Inc would like to thank you for reading our blog! If you know anyone who would like to know more about planning your backyard swimming pool landscape, then be sure to share this article or simply call Aqua Fun Inc. today – (770) 419-7119 or schedule time to talk here.

Summer Pool Party Tips

It’s that time of the year again, the school bell is ringing all over North Georgia. This can be an exciting time but also a stressful time. Just because school is back in session does not mean the summer is over. What better reason is there to celebrate the new school year, blow off some steam and invite your friends and family over for an end of the summer pool party than this?

The kids will love swimming in the pool playing classic pool games like Sharks & Minnows, but they will also enjoy playing a simple game of Simon Says on the pool deck.

Get those Super Soakers out after the planned activity, the kids will never get bored. Look out because you might just get wet.

You know the party has started when dad does a belly flop. Have your camera’s ready, these are epic moments the kids will never forget. If belly flops are not your cup of tea then a good old fashioned cannonball will work just fine. These days of summer are priceless and memories can last forever so be sure to snap pictures.

Beach balls and hula hoop’s can be a lot of fun. There are several games one could play with either toy, but the game you see below is a great way to combine the two. Do you like basketball? If you do then you will really enjoy this game.

An end of summer pool party would not be complete without a great array of food and drink. You will find some great poolside treats on our Pinterest board. More reason to see why there is no need to squeeze in the last minute trip to Florida to create family memories. With your new Aqua Fun Swimming Pool & Spa you can have a Staycation right in your own back yard. We give you several great ideas for your vacation at home in this blog post.

Looking to have a more adult party? No problem, a nighttime pool party might be the better choice. Since you already  added the beautiful underwater illumination to the pool, waterfall and spa you don’t have to do much more to impress.

Luxurious swimming pool!

Prepare For Your New Pool and Swim By Summer

1. Build Your “Dream Pool” Pin Board.

Follow Rachel Cook’s board Our Pools and Spa’s on Pinterest.

Help us know what you’re looking for, start a “Dream Pool” board on Pinterest. Invite us to your Pinterest board using our email address – myaquafun@gmail.com.

2. Decide between a Gunite, Fiberglass or Vinyl Inground Pool.

  • Gunite Pool is the strongest of the three choices, and also the longest lasting.

Read a comparison of the three pool types, pool liners and surface finish choices.

3. Have a clear sense of purpose.

Ask yourself why you’re installing a swimming pool. Do you want to exercise more? Are there small children in your family who love to swim and you want to create more family time? Want to increase the value of your home? Are you a naturalist and want a Salt Water Pool instead of a chlorinated pool? Whatever the reason, knowing your purpose will help us make it the dream pool you have been wanting.

4. Decide what kind of pool shape you want.

Once you have established how you will be using your swimming pool, it will be easier to decide the shape. Rectangular designs provide a timeless, classic look and are great for swimming laps and playing pool games. If you prefer a natural looking pool, then a kidney or free-form shaped inground pool can blend with the landscaping and be a great choice for you.

5. Focus on the details.

Pick Recreational Add-On(s), Water Features and Underwater Illumination to complete your dream swimming pool design. 2015 Swimming Pool Trends include but are not limited to Custom Entry’s, In-Water Benches and Table, Tanning Ledge, Grotto and Swim Up Bar, Diving Board, Water Slide, Splash Pad, Exquisite Waterfalls, Bubbling Fountains and massaging jets.

 

Do you want to add a spa to the pool design? Not sure if it is in your budget? Be sure to ask the professionals at Aqua Fun, our team of experienced designers can help you come up with the best plan for your dream pool!

6. Keep safety in mind.

Do you want a pool alarm? If you have small children around you may want to consider it. Child-proof locks on gates, and security alarms on windows to the backyard are also considerations. Safety Covers will add that extra barrier of protection you may want. Aqua Fun is all about safety first and with that added security you can have peace of mind knowing your family is safe around the pool.

7. Plan your pool party!

Aqua Fun is always staying up on the popular swimming pool design trends and 2015 is looking better than ever!

There is an upswing in new pool construction and contemporary pool design & remodel. With that comes beautiful, functional new ideas to share. Many of the same designs that were hot in 2014 are also going to be hot in 2015. There are a couple of newer trends making their march to greatness and possibly into your new inground swimming pool design we will share as well. It’s all about personal style and more choices when making the plans to turn your own backyard into an island oasis. Our team of professionals can help you do it all.

Geometric Pool

 

2015 Swimming Pool Design Trends

Exercise Pools and Hot Spa’s

Take care of those muscles in a smaller pool design with a built-in spa. Also called lap pools, strengthen your body with a new inground swimming pool made for exercising, then relax your muscles and mind in your built-in spa. There are different types of exercise pools. A true exercise pool has a resistance jet at one end of the pool that generates a current much like a small wave. The resistance jet allows you to swim in place without actually going from end to end of the pool. Then there is a lap pool with a long and narrow design. An exercise pool or lap pool has become more popular in recent years and the outlook keeps exercise pools trending as a top contender. Certainly as more and more homeowners find themselves in a home without extra room in their backyard space or pocket-book,  small exercise pools are perfect for these kinds of challenges.

Natural pools and Salt Water Pools

We wrote a blog about Salt Water pools and suggest reading that for more in-depth discussion on what we think about Salt Water pools. We’ll be writing more about Natural pools in future blog posts however the best way to describe a Natural Inground Swimming Pool is to take a more natural focus when designing the look and feel of the pool. We join the pool design into the natural terrain of the landscape. Sure we can take the Natural Pool to whole new level beyond what we have described here, however, for clarity, we prefer designing the pool in a natural looking state with Salt Water.

Geometric Shapes and Water Features Overflow

Geometric pools are making a come back and that is partly because of the new features a builder can add. Things like incorporating the lighting with water and using the extra space for custom pool built-ins like sloping entries, seating, waterfalls, swim-up bars and sun-tanning ledges. The elegant visual display of overflow water cascading over the ledges, waterfalls, or water fountains and underwater illumination can bring your backyard retreat to a whole new magical realm. Rectangular, square, round, oval, octagonal and L-shaped pools were in great demand in 2014. The geometric inground pool shape generally fits traditional backyard spaces better than many of the more complicated designs and continues to be a popular trend in 2015.

Alternative Finishes

Beauty and durability are the strong points of this popular trend. Whether you are building a new inground swimming pool or are looking to re-model your current inground pool, alternative finishes are great choices to modernize and glamorize your pool! Aggregate Finishes with Pebble Tec and Pebble Sheen have been steadily moving up in popularity and are a big part of Aqua Fun’s pool designs. Glass tiles are becoming more desirable than ceramic and porcelain tiles, partially because they are durable and are resistant to powerful chemicals used to keep the pool clean and maintained. Glass tiles come in various sizes, shapes and colors, used inside or around the pool / spa leaving a shimmer glow reflecting the water in the pool or on edges.

Digital Pool

We will be writing an entire blogpost about digitizing your inground swimming pool. These days you can command your outdoor environment with your iPhone or Smartphone. Use your phone to control lights, pool & spa temperature, pumps, water features, pool cleaners including security cameras and landscape irrigation.

Stay tuned for articles about these latest trends. Let Aqua Fun Inc. be your pool design specialist with Popular Swimming Pool Design Trends in 2015. Give us a call and schedule a free consultation – (770) 419-7119.
