Inground pools and backyard spas are becoming popular landscaping features to add to your yard.

Traditional Swimming Pools

Traditional Swimming pools have been around for years and are a good design choice for a general backyard swimming pool that all ages can use. They are usually in the 40’ x 20’ (12.0m x 6.0m) to 30’ x 16’ (9.0m x 4.9m) sizing and may be rectangular or a free form curving shape. They are long enough to swim in for exercise, like swimming laps. The distinguishing feature is they have a deep end, suitable for shallow diving, and a shallow end for wading and cooling off in the summer. This is the ‘classic’ design that immediately comes to mind when you picture a backyard swimming pool. .


In addition to mulch being suitable for planting beds we also use it extensively in 'dead' zones like between houses where a clean finish is desired and turf grass doesn't grow well anyway. Save your turf inputs for the functional turf areas that function as play spaces for kids and pets or as a traditional front lawn that offsets your home as a design element.
