5 Small Changes That Can Transform Your Pool Installation

Do you own a swimming pool? Whether your Maryland pool installation is above or below ground, there are a few small changes that you can make to completely transform the installation as a whole.

In this article, we’re going to dive in and discuss them in full.


We all want to make sure we are getting the best our money can buy and would rather not cut any corners that might cost us someday.

There are important factors to consider when building something that could be permanently on your property. Once you start, to ensure there are minimal surprises, make sure to have done plenty of research.


Know what your pool will be used ahead of time. If you would like to practice flips and will have a diving board, ensure the water will be deep enough.

Alternatively, if it will be used mostly for laps or recreation, you may want to go for something more shallow, but significantly wider.


There are many options available for securing your swimming pool.

Whether you choose to have a wooden fence surrounding your deck or a chain-link fence around the perimeter, security is key to keeping unsupervised children, pets, and wildlife from entering the water.

For further protection, you may want to consider a pool cover, alarm gates or cameras.


If one end of your yard is less appealing than the other, you know this beforehand. If you are having problems deciding, choose a spot with the best view and start from there.

For example, a clear view of a splendid sunset over the mountains may be a helpful factor when it comes to deciding on lawn furniture and other essential accessories.


A little landscaping TLC can help to transform just about any space. You may want to consider extending an existing deck or patio area to the pool, keeping the conversation flowing throughout your backyard.

Flowers, plants, and succulents can be used to create beautiful garden areas, topped off with some mulch, of course. All while stepping stones and custom pathways can be added to help improve the flow throughout your backyard.

Last but not least, don’t forget the exterior lighting to help improve the atmosphere, safety, and functionality.


Perhaps, with too many cracks or out-of-date features, it may just be time for a complete renovation.

Be sure to look into options beyond the more obvious ones and perhaps indulge in something just a little bit extra.

From circulating water features and built-in hot tubs, to LED lights and so much more, you can create an environment that exceeds your greatest fantasy!
