Fall Improvements That Will Transform Your Pool

Whether you're upgrading your personal pool, or managing a community pool that needs some improvements or upgrades, we can help. And fall is the best time to get started on these types of projects! You've likely either already winterized the pool for the season, or it's on the books to be done. So why not go ahead and have the best landscape design company at the Lake of the Ozarks handle the job of making some upgrades and improvements while the time is right? Check out some of the possible improvements that'll transform the look of your pool!

Upgrading the Patio Around Your Pool
This is the time to upgrade and update the area around your pool. Then, when summer swim season rolls around, you will have brand new poolside space to enjoy with family and friends. If your patio area feels a bit bland, and not quite like the oasis you'd like it to be, there's several things that can be done to spruce up the space and make it into a luxurious paradise getaway. By having a professional landscaping design company create a beautifully planned out design for your outdoor living area, you'll find that you miss spending days poolside entertaining guests and basking in the sun. Summer can't get here soon enough!

Installing a Tanning Ledge 
Add a tanning ledge to extend your recreation and relaxation options! There's a multitude of ways you can do this depending on your desired use. Some people prefer to have what are called thermal ledges, which are only about 4-5 inches deep so that the water temperature is warmer from the sun. Most people, however, prefer them to be around 12-16 inches deep for lounging and for a safe place for children to play. Tanning ledges are perfect for lounge chairs, kids’ play area, or shallow water sunbathing. Plus, a tanning ledge adds an element of running water and turns the entire pool into a water feature.

Adding in New Steps
There are several step types that can be added to an existing pool; depending on the pools’ structure and configuration. Sure you could go with a "drop in" step, but they can cause problems. This step sits on top of the pool floor, has a weighted bottom to hold it down, has some movement when stepping on it, and over time causes liner abrasion which damages the liner. The best choice for adding new steps to an existing pool is to have steps installed that are connected to the pool wall. This process is more costly, but they are more stable, longer lasting, and adds more value. This is also a good time to think about whether your pool is handicapped accessible. Managing a community pool? Perhaps it's not just a set of steps that you need - maybe your pool could benefit from a redesign that would accommodate ALL of your guests!

So before you dismiss your pool for the year, take a good hard look around. Think about some of the upgrades that your pool and outdoor entertainment area could use, because there's no better time than now to get started!
