In next to no time, you can make your house the place to be on your block. Whether you want to replace the pool you’ve had for years or you want to make room for one that has never been there before, here are some of the things you need to think about when it’s time to start planning your dream pool.
Much like putting up a new fence or making other additions and changes to your home, you may need to have the right permits and paperwork in place before you can start doing anything. Installing a new pool will probably have many regulations on it, so be sure to speak to your HOA as well as county officials, if necessary. That way, you can adhere to zoning regulations and ensure that you don’t accidentally violate any safety rules that are there for everyone’s protection. Plus, you don’t want to build on your neighbor’s property without realizing it.
Before you can install a new pool, you will need to speak with swimming pool installation experts. They can guide you through the process of determining what shape, size, and depth are right for your yard. The soil composition of your land is only one factor that affects the type of pool you can install – how sloped, and rocky is your property? Depending on the answer to this question, you might be better off with a hot tub instead.
Before you can do anything pool-related, get in touch with your insurance carrier. Although you can include protection for the pool in the home insurance policy you already have, you will most likely have to update the plan you have now. This, in turn, can make your current rates go up, and the increase can be dramatic depending on how much risk your insurance provider thinks there might be – which is why adding a pool fence is well worth the investment to protect your pets and family.
Lastly, take some time to think about how your landscaping efforts will change. Adding a new swimming pool will affect many of the landscape tasks you usually do because you don’t want to get dirt or grass clippings in the water while you mow the lawn during the rest of the spring and summer. Light and shade are two essential considerations you can’t overlook, as the growth rate of the plants around your pool could interfere with how accessible it is.
