Once you have decided to get a swimming pool for your back or front yard you will need to make a decision on what type to install. In order to make your decision easier we have highlighted a few pointers below.
Custom built or prefabricated?
If you have an unusually shaped backyard or require the pool shell to be built up against the house as space is an issue concrete or vinyl may be your only option. Custom designing a concrete pool can be expensive depending on the size, shape and chosen finish. The extra cost is mostly related to the extra labour required to install the pool.
What shape and size pool will suit my yard?
The shape of your swimming pool should complement the landscape of your outdoor living space and also your house. Most popular shapes for a tropical theme are kidney shapes with rocks and a waterfall on one side. Roman style pools suit similar style houses with columns and arches present in the architecture.
