When you look out into your backyard, what do you feel? Are you filled with joy and excitement or is there a sense that something is missing? With some imagination, creativity, and the right pool builder, you can turn your backyard into the perfect outdoor oasis mere steps from your back door. Read on for the top five ways you can fall in love with your backyard this year and enjoy all the best parts of a tropical vacation without ever leaving home!

1. Custom Pool
There’s nothing more relaxing and exciting than having a pool in your backyard. And the most exciting thing about adding a pool is the design options are truly endless. From traditional designs to more natural-looking poolscapes with waterfalls and even grottos, you can create a beautiful pool that even the most exciting resort will envy. By working with a professional pool designer you’ll be able to make your wildest dreams come true for the perfect poolscape you can enjoy with family and friends for years to come. 

2. Outdoor Kitchen
Being able to cook and dine al fresco is one of life’s most enjoyable experiences. Whether you’re looking to incorporate a fully-equipped outdoor kitchen or one that features an industrial grill and even a pizza oven, there are so many options available to customize an outdoor kitchen to meet your needs. Family fun oftentimes revolves around food, and having a functional, not to mention beautiful, outdoor kitchen where you can just stay outside, prep your food, and just enjoy it, makes your outdoor oasis all the more exciting.  

3. Fire Pit or Fireplace
For those chillier summer nights or cooler winter months, adding a fire pit or fireplace is a great addition to your ultimate staycation. This will serve as a place where you can get the family together and go old school by roasting marshmallows, or you can host a party and move everyone outside to enjoy hanging out together under the stars. Fire Pits and fireplaces are great congregating spots for family, friends, and amazing conversation. 

4. Outdoor Seating
Outdoor seating is a must. Adding a few comfortable chairs or maybe a couch to complete the setting will create a space that’s perfect for entertaining or hanging out. You can plan to be around your fire pit or create a separate covered area to the side. Imagine getting to laze in, lounging on a soft sofa on a rainy day, and just enjoying a book. When was the last time you got to do that?

5. Custom Spa
And finally, the luxury to end all luxuries. Why travel hundreds of miles to pay for expensive hotels when you can pour yourself a glass of wine and unwind in your own spa? That, too, with a view of your flatscreen with a collection of your favorite unwinding shows at no extra charge. There are so many benefits to having a spa at your own discretion, including stress reduction, muscle and body relief, and better sleep, just to name a few.
