How to Design a Pool to Fit in a Small Yard, South Kona, Hawaii

One of the best parts of the summer heat is being able to relax in a pool. Putting one in your backyard offers hours of entertainment and refreshment. Even if you have a small yard, there are still options available for you. Whether you prefer in-ground or above-ground pools, there is something to fit in your yard.

In-Ground and Above-Ground Pool Options for Small Yards

Freeform Pools

One of the easiest ways to fit a pool into your yard is with a freeform shape. There is no geometric shape as it is designed to fit in your yard. They often curve or bend and rarely have sharp edges, which allows them to squeeze into even tight spaces while still looking stylish.

Along the Fence

above-ground poolsWhen your lawn is small, placing a pool in the middle of the yard will only make your space appear even smaller. Maximize what you do have by positioning an above-ground pools alongside the fence line or even as part of the deck to use your space efficiently. This allows you to have your pool while still maintaining a lawn. 

Work With Nature 

If your property is lined with beautiful Hau trees or plumeria, don’t feel like you have to choose between the foliage and the water feature. With a custom pool contractor, you can create a design that works with the nature that will surround it. Your pool can curve around your landscaping, which will not only allow you to have a beautiful pool to enjoy, but it also gives it a beautiful, natural look.
