Needing to keep up with the times extends to every little bit of property. That certainly includes the little swimming pools often seen in backyards, conveniently tucked away, unseen. Why not spruce it up at some minimal expense? Everything appears very costly, thanks to media hype. The truth is often different and affordable costs exist with the appropriate people. Beautification, additional features like firepits, a patio, adding seating and cooking arrangements etc. Consider lighting that would bring the nights alive and a firepit to achieve warm nights by the poolside.
The ROI factor
A positive advantage of extensions and upgrades to the property is the increase in its value. One never knows when properties would have to be bought and sold due to transfers or change of circumstances. Keep a watch to making such investments to improve the face of the home.
Consider landscaping around the pool
A glittering mini-resort is quite possible with the right ideas. A little waterfall could easily be incorporated into the pool scenario, based on ledges or rock formations. Just imagine the glorious impact! Do try to incorporate that little waterfall into the design. Having a little resort around the house would result in the family spending more time productively. Guests would also like to share in the happiness.
Along with that blue water, install attractive tiles of natural stone, perhaps, or mosaics that could be glass-based for an immersive impact. Like framing a dear picture, let the borders complement the blue or green pool bottom with yellows and blues. Make it as colorful as desired with a shelter nearby with adequate seating.
If space allows, set up a patio with an outdoor kitchen! Parties for those special occasions would have no ending with all the facilities. A warmed swimming pool would be attractive at all times. Food, seating, and protection from the elements are all guaranteed during those few hours of heavenly bliss. What would life mean without those glorious get-togethers?
Start with the garden that would probably already have several flowering plants, cactuses, and bonsai. Add to the collection with attractive containers and some rare species of plants and exotic flowers of several colors. Research ways to grow them successfully. Trees also add to the ambiance with refreshing coolness, depending upon garden dimensions. A rock garden compels attention and a feeling of mystery. Keep grass under control with regular mowing, but provide adequate water on a biweekly basis.
Lighting is crucial to ensure safety in late night parties and LED would be the best bet. Attractive lighting patterns and designer fixtures would bring the scene up to date. Don’t forget lights on the ground beside the heights and underwater.
