Do not just think about the small pool while planning your backyard. Work out how it fits into your overall lifestyle, how much deck space you really need for all those summer and fall parties, and how the style of the pool reflects that of the home itself. Even a petite pool does not stand in isolation, so think about a matching deck area, maybe an outdoor dining space or barbecue area for some great family evenings, and even a pool house if you can afford the luxury. A small pool will definitely transform the backyard into a far more happening spot.

Hilltop Pools and SpasWe’re still refusing to accept winter is coming and arelooking past it, dreaming up pool projects for early spring. While large poolsand landscape structures are great, you can still achieve a home oasis with asmall yard! Turning your deck into a segue to the pool can help you takeadvantage of space. And if you’re certain you just absolutely don’t have enoughroom for a pool for swimming, don’t rule out a gorgeous over-sized hot tub tocompensate! I really love the small pool with Jacuzzi as well. It still takesup the same amount of space, but it’s two-tiered levels make it visually seem larger. GREAT POST!Willy JacksonSometimes less is more!!

Since most modern homes adopt a simple, clean design with straight lines and cubic forms ruling the interior, the landscape around your house should be no different. Let the small pool seem like an extension of the home and shape a lovely deck that acts as a transitional zone between the edifice and the pool. Even though you might not be swimming away in a giant lap pool, the classic rectangular design still gives you the satisfaction of having a beautiful pool in the backyard, even if it is far smaller in dimensions. The rectangular, in-ground pool is a classic that never fails, and you can start with one that is as small as 9 by 18 feet.

I can already hear some of our readers asking us how to fit a pool in a backyard that is even smaller than those showcased in the inspirations above. Well, we have got two words for you all – plunge pool. Plunge pools require very little square footage and rely more on depth than on width and length. Smart modern designers and contractors have come up with several ways that you can easily add a plunge pool to the backyard without worrying about compromising on deck area. While some might prefer a Jacuzzi instead of a dipping pool, we strongly suggest you opt for the latter. They are easy to maintain, aid in improving your health and of course, allow you to relax in style.

I was around 5 or 6 years old.  It’s one of my earliest memories.  We drive up to the recreational center that housed our town’s pool.  We walk into the reception area and BAM – there it was through the glass… the large, crystal blue pool.  I wanted in.  I actually thought we were going swimming.  My young mind couldn’t comprehend that my Dad was there to only sign us up for swimming lessons, not to go swimming.
