Have the weekends spent in your backyard become a continual nagging feeling of “this could be better, but I have no idea what to do about it?” Do you feel less than content or serene as you sit on your one lawn chair that still has the remains of the cool chair cushions you bought a few summers back? Or are you just bored with what you see and feel a need to change? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then maybe you should start looking into a themed pool and landscape for your back yard oasis!
Why Is a Theme Perfect for You?
You work hard during the day and the weekends are meant for you. Fun in the sun is so much more fun when you spend it in your tropical oasis themed pool and yard; plant palm trees for shade, add a waterfall of rocks to one end of the pool, and resurface the bottom in a deep turquoise Pebble Tec and you’re on your way to the tropics every weekend!
You Determine the Costs
While a total refabrication of your yard and pool COULD become costly, you can make it as inexpensive as you need it to be. Start small—plant a few plants, repaint the existing gazebo, and buy some new chair cushions for your lawn chairs in the first stage, building on the theme as you go.
Incorporate a Hobby
Start researching before you jump right in and begin the transformation. What are your hobbies? If you’re into model trains, for example, you can create a gazebo that resembles a train station or add a trestle for one of your trains to circle around high above your pool. Check out the internet to determine if you can find materials that resemble a model train display, but don’t be frustrated if you can’t find what you’re looking for; this may be a sign that a model train designed pool and landscape is not the one for you!
Be Inspired by Others
For those times you know you want something different, but don’t have the faintest clue what different is, check out magazines, websites, and television shows and get an idea what is out there! Don’t be surprised if you feel a bit overloaded though; if you can think it, someone probably has already done so, and improved on it!
Pool and Landscape Themes
Your pool and landscape theme can be whatever you want it to be, from the elaborate—creating a pirate themed pool and yard, complete with pirate’s treasure and a swim up bar—to the simple—a pool with a contemporary shape and clean lines with the yard and plantings mimicking the simplicity.
