Pools For Small Backyards

In 2020, not every home comes with a large backyard. Large blocks of land are the exception rather than the rule, especially in cities. However, a small backyard doesn’t mean you can’t have a pool. It certainly won’t be an Olympic size pool, but small pools have their own set of benefits and can be designed to suit almost any space. Here’s what you need to know.

Small Pool Designs

Concrete is the material of choice for most small pools because of its flexibility. Concrete pools can be customized to suit the layout of your property and any existing landscaping features. Before you settle on the design, you also need to consider how you intend to use your pool. If you have children, consider their ages and how likely they are to use the pool. Very young children also need special consideration. A couple without children might prefer a lap pool for exercise, or a spool (a combination of a spa and a pool).

Some design options to choose from include:

  • Plunge Pools
  • Spools
  • Lap Pool
  • Small Infinity Pool
  • Freeform pool
  • Hidden Pool

Small Pool Benefits

Bigger isn’t always better, especially when it comes to pools. Small pools have all the lifestyle advantages of a larger pool, but with the added bonus of lower running costs and less maintenance. Other benefits include:

  • A small pool requires less water and less chemicals, saving you money and making them more environmentally friendly
  • Easier to heat with solar panels
  • Cheaper to install
  • Takes up less space in your yard
