When it comes to deciding to bring a pool into your yard, there is no bigger decision to make than the design of it. The design of the pool not only affects the beauty of the entire pool but also how well it will work within the yard space that you have available. The first thing you want to do is to think about how much of your yard you want to be covered by a pool and then you can work from there. It is also a good idea to think about the swimming pool maintenance that will be involved with the pool you pick out. The bigger the pool, the more work that you are going to have to put into it.
