Swim-Up Bar

What better way to enjoy the outdoors than with a cold glass of wine or beer in your pool? Combine your favorite warm-weather drink with your favorite warm-weather activity with a swim-up bar! This is sure to impress your guests with a fun way to enjoy a drink.

Pro Tip: If you host a lot of guests on a regular basis, a swim-up bar could be just what you need to entertain everyone and keep the party going!

Shallow Water Features

Your pool doesn’t have to be deep in every spot. Experiment with adding shallow areas to create unique features for your custom pool. For instance, have you ever tried a beach entry? This gently sloping edge replaces stairs and conjures up thoughts of walking into the ocean as the land slowly dips lower. This gives your pool a more natural look and complements a nature-oriented backyard.

For an alternative, consider adding a tanning ledge. This portion of your pool averages about 18 inches deep and allows you to set up specialty tanning chairs to stay cool while you lay in the sun. Best of all, your kids can play safely in the shallow water. A tanning ledge is a perfect choice if you love the sun but hate the heat!

Flash & Fire

For an exotic backyard, why not add fire features? A fire pit, a bowl of fire, or similar decoration involving open flames gives an additional flavor to your backyard aesthetic that nothing else can quite match. Not only will these features keep your backyard lit at night and reflect on your rippling pool, but they also give you the chance to hold the occasional marshmallow roasting party. You can’t go wrong with fire accessories in your backyard!
