Ah, the good old days. When you first started your family, all you had to do was fill a small wading pool with water from the hose — you were guaranteed sunny-day fun all summer long.
Well, things aren’t as easy now as they used to be. These days, your life’s probably outgrown lounging in that small pool and calls for something a bit more substantial, like an infinity pool with a deep end. But that doesn’t mean you don’t deserve some fun in the sun by the poolside!
A pool design with amazing swimming pool features like palm trees and a beach entry doesn’t have to be daunting — it’s a process you can tackle one step at a time, and it’s even easier if you have a little help from the professionals. (That’s where Neave Pools comes in!)
Here’s a look at those important first steps that will get you started in the journey of outdoor living that will end with a beautiful new outdoor pool.
Swimming Pool Design Step 1: Initial property assessment
The beginning of any new construction process is a consultation. In Neave Pools’ case, you’ll meet your point person who will be your guide through the design and construction process — and beyond into maintenance and improvement, if you wish!
The custom pool contractor you work with will send a landscape designer or project manager to your home for a comprehensive site visit and property walk-through, where you’ll discuss your backyard design wants and needs.
This is also a great time to go over any inspiration you’ve found as you’ve been planning pool ideas for your own backyard. Sharing magazine cutouts, websites and other ideas will give your designer more insight into your tastes and style — and help get them started on the next step.
Swimming Pool Design Step 2: The actual design
Neave Pools offers 3D swimming pool design ideas to our New York and Connecticut clients.
Your designer will head back to the office to start incorporating their findings from your site visit, the ideas and inspiration you shared, as well as their own knowledge and insights, into an initial design. It’s time to start bringing it all to life!
At Neave Pools, our pool builder designers use a realistic 3-D modeling program — in addition to the on-paper designs we create — to offer a more realistic visualization of how the beautiful new pool might look once it’s complete.
Swimming Pool Design Step 3: Presenting the design
Your designer should offer you a few modern pool designs that are suited to your landscape design plan. You’ll see those paper drawings, as well as 3-D renderings (in Neave Pools’ case), and after discussing what you like and dislike about what the designer has created, they’ll wrap up a final modern style pool design for your approval.
Then you’ll be on your way to the construction process!
Swimming Pool Design Step 4: On-site tweaks
Before you break ground on your pool now is the time to make small changes to your plan.
There may even be opportunities to tweak your design as the initial construction process gets underway! Sometimes things layout a tad differently on-site. Many times homeowners will want to resize the surrounding patio area to fit a rectangular pool size or upgrade the outdoor pool deck. A capable swimming pool construction company is able to easily adapt and take care of these small backyard changes.
The Best in Custom Inground Pool Designs
At Neave Pools, your new pool design ideas will be supervised every step of the way by that point person you met with on the very first day — and they’ll remain in touch with you during that time, too.
Of course, the type of pool design goes way beyond the design itself — and Neave Pools wants to simplify the process as much as possible!
