If you’re living in Arizona, you need a pool. There’s no question about it, it’s a must! Unless you have a ton of money to migrate West for the summer and re-located in California until the brutal summer heat passes, a pool should be a part of your home. If a pool is not a part of your home yet, put that sucker on your must-have list and get it done and keep this article in mind for future reference. If you do have a pool, we’re going to share with your 3 tips to turn your pool into an ordinary pool to a fantastic pool that will make you feel like you’re at your own resort!
- Our first tip is to get some sweet decorative boulders going on around your pool, preferably the ones that have speakers. All the good resort pools have relaxing hidden music going on for their guests. The effect it has on their guests is amazing because it’s seen as a sort of automatic relaxer
- The next thing you need to do is get your pool deck nice and clean looking. Cracked pool decks account for some of the biggest problems down the road when it comes to repairing your pool. The harsh Arizona heat doesn’t go easy on pool decks so it’s important to get these things checked out because it will save you a lot of money down the road, but will also make you love your pool again!
- The 3rd pool landscaping idea we have for Arizona residents is to have some sort of shaded cabana area. You’re probably thinking that this is going to be way too expensive to have done but in reality you can do it for quite cheap. One of our readers submitted a story to us about how they were able to install a cabana shade for their “home VIP” area for under $500. They were able to install some clean looking wood and drape cabana features down from it which gave them the perfect shaded spot in their backyard for a ridiculous low cost.
If you apply these tips to your backyard, your home will look nicer, appear to have more value, and your backyard will be as serene as ever. We do also recommend of course getting some beautiful plants and trees put into your back yard. We like to make our visitors feel as though they are not in Arizona when they come over to our house for a backyard BBQ. You can easily do the same for your guests.
