It could be a romantic spot on Valentine’s or the perfect place to hold a social gathering. In any case, it all depends on the dimensions of your outdoor space.
In the past, the small size of your backyard might have been a hindrance but today there are a variety of pool shapes and sizes that will perfectly fit in all spaces, big and small. Our multi award winning team at GEORGIA POOLS can help you design and build your backyard oasis, even if we are given a small space to work with.
Our experts at GEORGIA POOLS hear a lot of questions about the type of inground pool customers should opt for, either concrete or fiberglass. There isn’t a cookie cutter answer because it depends on the type of pool you want. Concrete and fiberglass both have their own set of benefits, so you cannot go wrong with either choice.
The main thing is to find the right size, shape and design for your desired pool that will adjust well to a smaller outdoor space. Fortunately, there is a wide selection of fiberglass pool shells where you can opt for a freeform or geometric pool that can be as small as 10’ by 20’ or as big as 16’ by 40’.
If you want a pool that is smaller than 10’ by 20’, our experts at GEORGIA POOLS suggest that you opt for a concrete inground pool because it can be poured and molded into any size. All you need to do is communicate your personal style and taste, and let our team of experts do the rest. No matter how small a space we are working with, you will surely get a beautiful concrete pool that will last you for years to come.
There is no best pool shape for small backyards because it completely depends on the type of space we are working with. If you opt for a fiberglass pool, obviously you need a minimum amount of space in your backyard but if you are going for a concrete pool, the choices are endless. With fiberglass, you are limited to pre-set shapes and designs, but if your space allows, you have the freedom to go with either option.
The other things to consider are pool decking. A freeform pool, such as a kidney shaped pool, allows you to have more decking space than a geometric shaped pool. For instance, if you intend to place poolside furniture, such as lounge chairs or a barbeque grill, you need to take all those factors into consideration before settling on the final shape of your pool.
Just because you have limited space in your backyard doesn’t mean you are limited with customization options. When it comes to custom pool features, the opportunities are endless! You can add a bubbling fountain or a beautiful rock waterfall to enhance the overall look of your backyard retreat.
You can further customize your inground swimming pool in your small backyard by adding elegant water features, such as a vanishing edge or even a raised spa to make it the ultimate spot for relaxation.
