It’s a new year! Have you been putting off work on your back yard? One way to update it, and to ensure it will be enjoyed for years to come, is to add an inground swimming pool.
Adding a swimming pool is an especially good idea when you’re in the process of re-landscaping your back yard. The area in which the pool will be laid will need to get excavated, so you’ll have extra earth that can be re-distributed as part of your landscaping scheme. Once you add a pool, designing your vegetation to create privacy or add ambience to the surrounding area will be a top priority as well. You may even consider adding a patio around or near the pool and surrounding gardens to make allowances for hosting friends and family.
If you’re still considering whether getting a swimming pool is right for you, here are a few great reasons to consider it.
Swimming offers a lot of health benefits
While you may not have the space for an Olympic-sized pool on a suburban lot, even small inground pools can provide enough space for swimming laps, and doing aquatic exercises that help increase blood flow. Swimming is a great activity for:
- Low impact workouts that increase the heart rate
- Building strength, endurance, and overall cardiovascular fitness
- Toning muscles
- Maintaining a healthy heart and lungs
- Offering a full-body workout with less stress to joints than other forms of exercise like running
It’s fun for everyone
From babies and toddlers to kids and teens, to older adults, swimming pools are fun for all ages. Swimming isn’t just fun, it can be a social activity, and installing a swimming pool in your backyard will transform your home into a hub of activity, especially in the warm summer months.
Swimming pools come in various sizes to fit any backyard
Whether you have an expansive backyard and live out in the country, or have a smaller space in the heart of the city, inground swimming pools come in all shapes and sizes. Plunge pools are even possible in spaces that are quite limited. Larger country homes can utilise the space in many different ways, from installing a rather large inground pool to adding on additional spas, splash decks pads, water features and more.
Fibreglass swimming pools are durable and installation is quick
If you’ve been dragging your feet on installing a swimming pool because you think it will be too much work or take too long, think again. Inground fibreglass swimming pools come pre-fabricated, so installation is quick and easy. They’re also extremely durable, with a special gel coating that protects your pool from will withstand UV, algae, and bacteria, meaning they’ll be easy to maintain and continue to look their best for years to come.
They will transform your yard
Adding a swimming pool will change the relationship you have with your backyard. It will extend the amount of living space of the home, especially if you add surrounding patios or a deck that can be used for entertaining and outdoor living enjoyment. The tranquillity you’ll feel having a small body of water near your home will be transformative, and you’ll find yourself feeling more relaxed and spending more time outdoors.
They add value to your home
If you’re considering selling your home in the future, you’ll be happy to know that having an inground swimming pool is an excellent selling feature and can add to the resale value of your property. Many buyers often look for existing pools when they are buying, and are willing to pay more for a home if they know they get a pool out of the deal.
