The Importance of Planning in Building a Pool

Building a pool is considered a major construction project. Before you set out and give the go signal to your contractors to start working on the pool, you should first take into careful consideration the planning and design. Here are some tips to help you communicate your ideas better to your pool builders.

Shape, Size, Depth

These three elements are crucial because once you decide this, you have made the most important decision. To make this decision, tap into your main objective for getting a pool. If it’s for fitness, you probably want something where you can do laps, which means getting a bigger pool that is long enough for laps.


If you have ample space left even with the pool in place, you should also consider landscaping. You can have the rest of your backyard cleared and create a landscape that compliments your new pool. It would be advisable, though, to have privacy trees so at least you and your family won’t be exposed from the street when you’re enjoying yourselves poolside.


Construction is going to be a major undertaking, so be ready to make any arrangements that may be necessary to ensure that your own daily activities won’t be hindered. Make sure to agree on a timetable with your pool builder so that your expectations as to the speed of their progress are met reasonably.

Taking the planning stage seriously can help you mitigate the errors and unnecessary costs that come along with correcting these problems later.
