Does your backyard have you feeling like you can’t achieve the landscape or pool design you’ve always dreamed of?

With more and more small lots in new subdivisions, we understand that it has become harder to picture and plan how to transform a backyard into a functional, comfortable, and beautiful space that doesn’t feel too crowded or busy.

Discover eight ways you can achieve your backyard dreams with a little change of perspective:

1. Customizable Patios

From customized BBQ’s and cozy lounge areas to outdoor fire pits, you can increase the functionality of your backyard, extending the usable hours of your property.

2. Multi-Functional Storage Space

At Pool Craft, our team can design and build any custom cabana or structure to suit your needs. Therefore, if you’ve always wanted a bar but also need storage for pool toys in a shed, we’ll work to find a solution that will accommodate all of your needs if possible.

3. Use Vertical Space

If you have a fence around your yard, consider using vertical space to hang plants and decor. You can also mount pool skimmers and other tools on your fence, creating function.

4. Smaller Pools

As we’re able to customize the look and size of each pool, we can design a pool that fits the shape of your yard. Your pool can be as large or as small as you would like it to be, as long as it meets all required permits.

5. Contain Gardens

Instead of creating a large garden, cultivate smaller gardens in pots. This will help you to save ground space but will still allow you to add greenery into your yard.

6. Minimize Furniture

Where possible, avoid purchasing clunky outdoor furniture that takes up lots of ground space. Your outdoor furniture should be fairly easy to move around, and flexible for a number of dining or entertaining situations. You may also want to consider furniture that allows for storage.

7. Hot Tubs

If you simply don’t have room for a pool in your yard, a hot tub is your best option for saving space. A hot tub can be a compact way to add a soaking and swimming feature to your backyard without losing too much grass or deck space.

8. Water Features

Waterfalls and water features can be incredibly calming, whether flowing into a pool, hot tub, or bird’s bath. By adding a water element into your yard, no matter what kind, you can introduce a zen and peaceful vibe that will make space feel more open.
