Today swimming Pools come in all shapes and sizes. What matters most, is the functionality and the design. And with a little creativity and the right builder, many things can be done. You should also consider, that there are lots of good reasons to choose a small pool even for a good-sized yard. On the other hand, there are also quite a few ways to maximize space in a small yard.
Use all your space
The typical pool is surrounded by a deck and can be accessed from all sides. By building up to fence or a retaining wall at the border you can safe quite some space. All you have to give up is the entry point on one or two sides of the pool. You even could use those inaccessible edges to incorporate a waterfall, which will give your pool an extra touch.
Work with Freeform pools
While many standard pools are rectangular or oval, there are many freestyle forms to choose from. You can find many different styles on our Swimming Pool page. Each style is versatile and can be customized regarding entry points, functionalities and extras. The Tuscany style and the Courtyard Roman are especially designed for smaller and more challenging spaces. Both feature a narrow coping design which maximizes the space inside the pool.
If you don’t have much space, your pool should be versatile. While the kids should be able to splash around and cool off, you might want to be able to really exercise in your pool or to relax in an internal spa. All Leisure Pools fiberglass pools can be customized and even the smallest pool can be equipped with an internal spa and a swim jet system that you can swim against to exercise. And there will still be space to have fun and cool off.
Another option: Spools
If your yard is even to small for this or you want to use even less space, a Spool might be the right thing for you. A Spool is basically an oversized spa, about 12 by 14 feet. While they can be used as a spa, they still offer enough room for the kids to splash and play. Ask Jamie Snyder of Albert Group Landscaping about the right option for your yard.
