1) Decide How You’ll Use the Area
For many homeowners, the pool patio isn’t just for the pool. It’s also a place to eat, lounge, entertain, and storing equipment. So as you plan, think about all the things you want to include in your patio. Options include:
- Fire Pits
- Outdoor Kitchens
- Grilling Stations
- Full-Service Bar
- Lounging Area
- Playing Area
- Storage and Organization
Understanding what you want out of your pool patio will help everything else fall into place.
2) Layout and Size
Size and layout are very important as you start your hardscape design. Why have a pool patio if you can’t get any sun or have room for your grill? Professional designers can help you see all the angles so you have a patio that fits your needs. They’ll know what size you need and how to situate everything to suit your needs.
3) Choose the Right Materials
Choosing the right materials can make or break a pool patio. Using custom crafted concrete, pavers or natural stone can help you protect against slips and prevent cracking. Stick with lighter colored materials that will reflect not absorb the sun’s heat. Landwork Contractors is and Authorized Unilock Contractor so we use only the best materials.
4) Don’t Forget Storage
You do not want a messy pool patio. People can trip or slip. It becomes a dangerous situation. Make sure you include storage for your pool tools, equipment, and accessories. Consider including:
- Built-in Storage
- A Bathhouse
- Storage House
- Outdoor Furniture with Storage Compartments
5) Include Fencing
Fences will not only provide you with privacy, but it will also protect against unwanted guests like stray dogs and prevent drowning, especially with young children.
