Making My Pool Even More Beautiful

After years of having a pool, I could tell that it really needed a little tender loving care. I started talking with different pool contractors, and I was able to find a professional who could help. He worked with me to completely renovate the entire deck that surrounded the pool, and then he even helped me to balance the chemicals. I was really impressed with how much better things became, and after it was finished I felt like my pool looked brand new. I wanted to start a new website all about creating a gorgeous pool, because I know how much of a difference a great backyard can make.

Preparing for New Pool Construction in Your Yard

Having an in-ground pool in your yard can be great. It gives the kids something to do while they are home all summer; provides a nice, cool place for family gatherings on hot days; and is just a lot of fun in general. If you have decided to have a pool constructed in your yard, you have probably already started looking into the different types. You may have even contacted a pool construction company and had a meeting with them to get things started. Before construction can begin, there are some things that will need to be taken care of, and here are a few that may be your responsibility.


The company you contract to do the work may or may not handle the permits required for your new pool. If they do not, be prepared to get a building permit. This may require an inspection of your property to make sure that does not need to be graded, and if it does, you may need another permit for that. In addition, an electrical permit may be required. Contact the local planning department to find out exactly what is needed and how long it will take to obtain them. Do not schedule anything before having all the required permits.

Yard Preparation

Once you have the permits and are ready for construction to start, there may need to be some things done to your yard. You will need to have an access for large equipment. This may mean you have to take down some fencing for the excavator and dump truck. Try to find a spot that will be as least disruptive to the rest of the yard as possible. You will also need to provide some type of temporary fencing for around the work area so no one accidentally falls into the hole.

Dumping Spot

You will be surprised at the amount of dirt that comes out of the ground for your pool. Odds are good that you will not be able to scatter it around the yard unless you want the lawn several inches higher than where it was to start. This means you need to make arrangements with an aggregate company to take your dirt. Making arrangements beforehand means you won't have a full dump truck sitting in your yard with more dirt to still load and haul away.

The company you choose for your new pool construction may be able to help you with all the above preparations, but it is always good to know what to expect. If you can handle these things on your own, it could save you some money.
