Above-Ground Pools: Affordable Luxury for Your Backyard

Installing a luxurious pool in your backyard does not need to be expensive! Gone are the days when your options were between the lesser of two evils.

Either you dug up your backyard and committed to an expensive renovation, or you went to the local department store every year to make-do with a cheap one-season pool to get by for the summer.

The lineup of above-ground pools at Bemister’s Pool & Patio are not only affordable, but also offer a permanent, luxury solution that solves this age-old dilemma.

Why consider an above-ground pool for a permanent backyard investment?

Read on to find out!

Above-Ground Pools vs. In-Ground Pools

When comparing the difference between above-ground pools and their in-ground counterparts, there are five major factors to consider.

After comparing these aspects, we think you’ll agree that an above-ground pool is easily the premium summer solution!

1. Affordability

In-ground pools require expensive retaining walls, leading to an exhaustive excavation and major reconstruction of your backyard after it’s installed.

The cost and quantity of concrete needed to install an in-ground foundation is also a major factor. Above-ground pools do not require special reinforcements.

Furthermore, due to their construction, maintaining an above-ground pool is also easier on your wallet.

Above-ground pools require less chemicals, and their mechanical components are easily accessible if something wears out.

They also require less water, and use less energy than their built-in counterparts.

2. Installation Time

Utilizing new technologies in materials and construction, above-ground pools are designed to provide stability and safety while offering simple installations.

The components used to build an above-ground pool are sturdy, which leads to installing fewer elements to complete your design.

3. Flexibility

By choosing an above-ground pool, you’re also choosing the freedom to relocate your backyard lagoon if the need should arise.

Additionally, you’ll have more options regarding the space to walk around it, as well as more opportunities to utilize the remaining space in your backyard.

4. Similar Features

Above-ground pools are actually equipped with the same “enhanced” features that in-ground pools offer such as vinyl liners.

Tough-to-tear heavy gauge vinyl liners are standard in pools of all styles these days.

These liners also incorporate the same UV protections as in-ground liners, and are available in a variety of eye-catching patterns, too.

5. Safety First

In-ground pools add an additional layer of danger to your backyard, and require extensive safety features.

Because of this, they can even result in your home insurance needing to be adjusted to accommodate it.

Above-ground pools create a more mindful atmosphere, sitting well within your peripheral vision.

Additionally, friends and family are less likely to dive in, naturally encouraging a “feet first” approach to swimming.

Above-ground pools can even reduce the need for fences and gates, however, it’s important to check with your town’s requirements to ensure your pool meets their outlined standards.

Overall, the above-ground style means your backyard can be a safer space for your children and pets.

Let’s explore some great ideas on how to turn your above-ground pool into the definition of indulgence!

3 Tips to Flawlessly Add an Above-Ground Pool to Your Home

Did you know, one of the most common reasons people opt out of a permanent above-ground pool is because they don’t like to see it sitting exposed in their yard?

Back to our affordable luxury theme, it doesn’t have to be that way! There are a few ways you can combat this, depending on your preferences.

1. Modify Your Existing Deck

A pool deck doesn’t need to completely surround your new above-ground pool.

If you have an existing deck in your backyard, the process of adapting it to function with your pool can be relatively simple.

2. Landscape if You Don’t Have a Deck

Not everyone has an existing deck, and not everyone wants one. That doesn’t mean you need to keep your above-ground pool bare and simple.

Help your pool blend in with the existing greenspace you already love to spend time in, by adding a simple garden bed with your favorite shrubs and flowers to dress up the perimeter.

3. Create Dimension with Lighting

LEDs are now a common, affordable solution for homeowners who want to add dimension and ambiance to their backyards.

By installing outdoor lighting around the perimeter of your pool, you can achieve a luxurious hotel-chic atmosphere, right in your own backyard.

Even better, combine these ideas to achieve a stunning look, with softer lighting nestled in your greenery, and spotlight LEDs to highlight your beautiful new pool.
