3 Things Every Arizona Pool Owner Needs

To get the most out of your Arizona pool, there are three must-haves in particular that transform your pool from pleasant to stunning. We’re not talking about basics such as skimmers and filters—we’re talking about design touches that turn your pool into a work of art. These features will not only boost your satisfaction with your pool, but also the value of your home and your prestige with your friends. So, with all of the fancy features that New Image Landscape and Pools can add to your pool, what are the must-haves?

Built-in Spa

First of all, a spa is a must. The nice warm heat and gentle bubbles are basically a massage you have access to at any time! A spa is the ultimate in relaxation—it’s as good as a way to unwind after work as it is as comfortable seating at a party. Spas are one of the few things in life that are healthy and feel good!

Now, while there are benefits to a portable or above-ground spa, nothing brings the yard together like a spa built-in to the rest of the pool. Plus, built-in spas hold their heat better, saving money on energy costs. They also tend to be easier to maintain, meaning even lower stress than above-ground spas! So our recommendation? Go with a built-in spa.

Accent Lighting

Have you realized that built-in pool lights tend to be barely functional and not-at-all aesthetic? Fix that problem and make your pool sparkle and shine at all times of night! With LED lighting, not only are pool lights brighter and more efficient than ever, they’re also highly customizable. Take some bright white lights and your pool is as brilliant as day at any time, or throw in some soft greens and purples for mood lighting—you can even set the lights up to constantly change color! Keep in mind too, that lights are more than aesthetic—better lighting means a safer environment for nighttime parties.


You might have seen waterfalls at certain public pools or private resorts, but did you know you can add one to your personal pool? Waterfalls add an inimitable touch of elegance to your whole yard with its risen shape and gentle movement. The sound is soothing and also helps to drown out noise from other yards or the street behind the house—it’s like a fountain that blends seamlessly with the pool! Waterfalls are the perfect way to show you mean business about a beautiful backyard.
