When the weather outside warms up for spring and summer and remains warm through the beginning of fall, it can be nice to be able to spend time in your backyard with friends and family. When your backyard space is attractive and inviting with landscaping and a gathering space, you are more likely to spend time in the fresh air, which can improve your mood and your health. Here are some recommendations to make your backyard enjoyable and a great outdoor space for the warmer months.
Free-form pools are really quite lovely. Most of the time, they are designed to fit an awkward space, while simultaneously adding decorative beauty to your backyard. Many of them are made to look like natural pools of water with lots of river stone, a waterfall or fountain, and paved stone surrounding the pool.
If your free-form pool looks like something out of a resort brochure, then you have quite the pool.
Having a pool can be a lot of fun, but it can also be dangerous. In fact, from 2005 to 2014, approximately 10 people died each day from unintentional drowning in the United States. Fortunately, there are things you can do to prevent a drowning in your pool, two of which are listed below.
Use a Pool Safety Cover
One of the most important things you can do is to use a pool safety cover.
Even though you have an in-ground pool in the backyard, you might feel like that section does not look decorative or bright enough. If you want to enhance the look of your pool as well as the area around it, there are some quick adjustments you can make. A few quick changes could leave your pool area looking its best.
1. Invest in a Pool Liner
Decorate the inside of your pool with a beautiful liner.
Your pool's liner provides a durable finish to the edges of your pool, preventing moisture damage to the concrete itself. Over time, due to exposure to the elements and various kinds of debris, your pool liner can become discolored and can even suffer from mold and mildew growth. To prevent this from happening, you should take care to properly clean and maintain your pool liner at regular intervals.
