Design Options for a Small Backyard Pool

here are many backyards that don’t have a lot of space that can be used in their backyard. However, you should know that just because your yard may be smaller, that doesn’t mean you can’t have a swimming pool installed.

Smaller yards can actually benefit from the addition of a small pool and can create a great space for entertaining friends and family.

Below, you will find some of the best design options for a small backyard pool.

The Best Pool Type

Fiberglass pools are often limited to existing molds. So, for smaller yards, it is best to go with a vinyl liner or concrete pool shape that can be customized to fit the space you have available.

Vinyl and concrete pools can be whatever shape you want and whatever size you need. You will find very few limitations when choosing one of these two pool options.

Choosing Your Pool – Shape and Size

To start, you want to assess the area where you want to place the pool. You then need to decide on the depth of the pool and the type of pool you want. Since pools are so customizable, you are not limited to traditional ideas and designs.

Bean shaped pools are a more popular option for smaller spaces, and you can even build a patio around them that helps you to maximize the little space you have to work with. You will also still be able to find room for a water feature on one side of the pool as well.

A rectangular pool may also be an option if you find that your yard is longer and narrower. It won’t take up too much space, and you can design it, so you still have space all around the pool available.

If you find yourself with a small amount of space to work with, don’t become discouraged. Just take some time to really analyze the area and see what you would have to do to make the pool work in your yard.
