As the 4th of July is right around the corner, it is time to start thinking about how you will celebrate this year’s festivities. Surely, in the past, you have taken part in celebrations that did not quite pan out the way you had envisioned. Well, that is a thing of the past when you host the festivities yourself by the pool in your backyard. But the surest way to put a damper on the celebration is by having a pool that is not ready to host people. If your pool isn’t quite ready for the spotlight, here are a few ways you can give your pool that extra pizazz that you have been looking for.
Add Simple Additional Features
I know what you are thinking: “I do not have the time or the money to make any fancy renovations before July 4th!” But that’s not true at all. There are plenty of ways to create a whole new ambiance without breaking the bank or wasting time. A fountain is the perfect way to add a great aesthetic and energy in the pool. Rock and water features surrounding the pool also go a long way in creating a relaxing and fun environment.
Keep the Pool Clean
As it is the summer in the valley, we all know that pool maintenance becomes a bit more involved. Hot temperatures and increased sunlight create an environment where algae and debris will thrive if not kept in check. You need to ensure that you are consistently removing debris from the pool and semi-consistently scrubbing the sides. Running the pool pump consistently and maintaining healthy chlorine levels are also important.
A Built-In Grill?
Nothing says 4th of July like a beautiful poolside grill, especially when it flows seamlessly with your pool and landscape. Your party will surely be the talk of your friend with this new addition.
Add Some Cool Lighting!
Adding some stylish lighting is a simple addition to a pool that can go a long way. This is especially important if you foresee the party continuing into the night for the fireworks!
Resurface the Pool
This is a very simple change that almost makes it seem as if you have an entirely new pool. There are countless varieties of pool surfaces, so there is something perfect for every landscape.
There are countless ways to ensure a great 4th of July pool party. Since the party will revolve around the pool, improving that aspect of your landscape is the surest way to celebrate properly!
