An Elegant Custom Pool Without Excavation: 3 Above Ground Solutions That Are Just As Good As In-Ground Pools

In-ground pools are not right for every homeowner and have a few disadvantages, such as making it harder to sell a home, more expensive maintenance and getting rid of a pool if you decide you no longer want it. Above ground pools have come a long way and there are many options that are just as good, or better than an in-ground pool. Here are some of the awesome above ground custom pools to install for your home:

1. Clear Cube of Water with Glass for A More Contemporary Design

If you have a contemporary-style home, then you may want to have a pool that is consistent with the design of your home. Glass is a great material for this because it is clear and creates a minimal visual impact. Glass pools also can be used to create many different illusions, which give you various options for unique custom pool designs. One example of the glass designs is walls that allow you to see beneath the water from an area inside your home.

2. Blend Your Pool in With the Natural Surrounding Using a Timber Design

Blend your pool in with the natural surrounding with a timber structure. Timber pool frames can be used to create a unique custom pool design that matches natural materials in the landscaping design around your home. The timber pool frame can come in prefabricated kits, which are much like typical above-ground pools. Another option is to talk with a contractor about custom building the timber frame and installing a custom fitted pool liner. With timber, you will want to use stone for drainage at the base of timbers to keep the wood safe from moisture and prevent rot.

3.  Custom Concrete, Brick and Stone Work for Above-ground Custom Pool Designs

Another option is to have your custom pool built above-ground with more conventional materials like concrete and brick. Stone finishes around above-ground pools look create and will give the pool design a natural look. In addition, if you use stone for the finish around the exterior of your pool, you can also create water features that use matching stone materials in their design.

In ground pools are not right for home, and if you still want a pool above-ground may be the way to go. Contact a stone supply service (try Harristone) to get stone for accents and features around your custom above ground pool. Stone is a versatile material that can be used for different features and finishes around above-ground pools.
