SWIMMING POOLS AND OUTDOOR SPAS

SWIMMING POOL AND SPA DESIGN & INSTALLATION


When considering a pool and spa landscape strategy, try to imagine the future environment, see how it can harmonize with the architecture, reflect one’s unique personality and bring pure enjoyment to life. Want more good reasons to install a pool and spa in time for the season? Here are just a few. 


Homeowners agree that the main reason for installing a pool and spa is the entertainment opportunities it provides. Parties, barbecues, wedding receptions or just a lovely place to gather with family and friends: A swimming pool and spa are the center of activity. It will become the most-used area of the house, especially in the warm weather months. Include a pool house or pavilion with an outdoor kitchen equipped with a pizza oven and dinner is served! 


SWIMMING POOLS AND HEALTHIER LIVING


One of the emerging trends in backyards today is the elegant and modern lap pool. Especially popular with fitness enthusiasts and in homes where space is limited, lap pools measure around 6 ft wide by 30 to 75 ft long.


A full-size pool will definitely reap the rewards of a private health spa right at home, which is conducive to starting and staying with an exercise regime. Studies have shown that the soothing sounds of water reduce stress, so consider installing water features such as fountains and waterfalls.


BEST OUTDOOR SPA LOCATIONS


When it comes to selecting the location of your outdoor spa, you want to consider both aesthetics and function. Do you want your spa to be a focal feature or do you want it to blend in to its surroundings? Will it be adjoining an existing pool, or will you be starting from scratch?


These types of questions can help you determine the best spot in your yard, to gain the maximum aesthetic benefits. Because your outdoor spa will need to be warm, and include ambient/safety lighting, you also want to consider your access to electrical sources. Meeting with a professional Bergen County landscape contractor is your best bet to getting a spa that will be the envy of all your friends.


OUTDOOR SPA INSTALLATION


Make sure you do your homework and find a reputable landscaping and design firm that is experienced with pool and spa installations. It is imperative that your spa is plumbed and wired by experts to avoid future disasters. Slow, undetected leaks in the plumbing can drive up your water bills, while potentially causing serious damage to surrounding landscaping and architecture. 


OUTDOOR SPA AESTHETICS


Spas have come a long way in the past ten years. Today’s spas can be built to resemble natural hot springs or a sleek, modern resort-worthy amenity. You can opt to have your spa sit above ground, and use a gazebo, landscaping or a pergola to create an attractive frame. In other backyards, a sunken tub can help the spa to seem like a more natural landscape feature.


You can also choose from a wide variety of pavers to help expand the patio area around the spa. Pavers are made to resemble concrete, brick, and stone, and can be replaced easily if necessary.


OUTDOOR SPA FUNCTION


 Who will be using the spa most often? If you have children, or will have children over on a regular basis, you will want to create some type of safety enclosure. How many people do you want to be able to use the spa at one time? By considering how the spa will be used, you can create designs that incorporate more or less people, places to hang robes and towels, and you can think about the types of lighting that will work best in your yard. 


SWIMMING POOLS AND OUTDOOR SPAS ADD HOME VALUE
