With summer fast approaching the greater Dallas area, it’s time to start thinking about your backyard. Perhaps you already have a beautiful, custom swimming pool to help you cool off during the hot months, but is the rest of your outdoor living space up to snuff?

At Hobert Pools and Spas, we offer pool and backyard remodeling services to help you get the most out of your outdoor living space. Extending your home’s living area into your backyard is a great way to encourage family bonding, create a space to entertain guests, and truly make the most of your Texas property. Here are just a few ways you can start bringing the inside out in time for pool party season.


Outdoor Living Rooms

Now here’s one way to bring the outside in: set up a poolside living room so that your guests can lounge all the more comfortably—extra points if it’s covered so that relaxing in your outdoor living space can be enjoyed year-round. Several of stores specialize in making furniture suitable for decks and patios, so you have plenty of options available to match your outdoor aesthetic to the rest of your home.


Water and Fire Features

Adding a water feature can only add to the beauty of your backyard swimming pool—but of course, don’t overdo it! One fountain, grotto or slide is most likely the perfect focal point for your pool area, and you don’t want to detract by adding too many water features. After all, your outdoor living space should still feel like part of your home!

If you’re thinking of adding a water feature, there is a multitude of options available to you. Sheer descent waterfalls can help create a soothing, spa-like atmosphere while a bubbler or jet can really liven up your pool space.

Additionally, fire features can really set your outdoor living space apart. We don’t mean just setting up a few tiki lamps (although those can add a welcome kitsch factor to certain backyards!), but rather something even more dramatic, like a fire bowl. Perhaps even take it a step further by adding a fire pit area to your outdoor living space. The kids in your family will love being able to roast marshmallows whenever they want!


Covered Structures

Some homes aren’t conducive to adding covered patios, but there are many other options available for folks looking to add a covered area to their outdoor living space. Customize your backyard by adding the covered space you want, whether that be a pergola, arbor or gazebo. These structures are great backyard features because they offer a momentary escape from the sun without leaving the rest of your party behind!
