Making the Most of Your Pool Time

How to make the most of your pool area

Custom Designed Pools | Stone Work | Landscape Designers | Atlanta

The first day of summer is officially upon us and that means unlimited pool time. It’s a known fact that pool time is the most popular summer time activity for all age groups during the summer. And with the Atlanta heat being particularly scorching this summer, a pool is the perfect outdoor living space accessory. While the pool may be the more popular summer activity, homeowners might ask themselves if there is anything they can do to enhance the aesthetic quality of their swimming pool. The answer is absolutely. There are lots of creative ways to make the most of your pool area.

Step one: Add extra water features. Sometimes adding an additional water feature, such as a small waterfall or water jets, can enhance the atmosphere for your outdoor living space. A waterfall not only enhances the aesthetic of your pool but also creates the feeling of being in a more tropical oasis setting than in your own backyard. It’s also been proven that the sounds of nature, i.e. running water, can reduce bodily stress.

Step two: If you’re wanting your pool area to be less traditional, adding stone walls and pathways around the pool can create a more natural atmosphere. Stone and rock walls have become more popular in outdoor construction due to the fact that it’s a simple design that can add depth and character to any outdoor living space. The more you incorporate nature into your pool area, the less it will appear man-made and you’ll be able to escape from everyday life more thoroughly.

Step three: While hot summer days may call for a jump in a cold swimming pool, some may be more inclined to enjoy the warm jets of a jacuzzi. A jacuzzi also has the added benefit of water jets which are good for sore muscles and ideal for relaxation time. With the proper construction team, a jacuzzi can be incorporated into the floor of your outdoor living space and provide you and your guests with the sauna-like steam from the hot water. Similar to a sauna, the heat from a jacuzzi causes individuals to sweat out toxins in the body which also reduces stress in the body.

Step four: The perfect addition to any pool party is of course music. Adding an outdoor stereo system to play music can be the cherry on top of a perfect summer get together. If you’re afraid of a stereo system disrupting the “nature escape” that you want your pool to provide for you and your guests, you needn’t worry. Many stereo systems can be routed through your outdoor living space so there’s no sign of actual technical equipment.

  • “Navid and his team have exceptional vision and incredible talent for design.
    Outdoor Makeover delivered a plan that is much better than the competitors from design to build. I ended up with an exceptional result that I totally love and enjoy daily. I am very proud to show off my special area in my yard and everyone loves hanging outside now; Navid asked questions to figure out my lifestyle. Furthermore, Navid discovered what I needed and wanted, of which I was unaware when we started the process.”

  • “We contacted a number of landscapers before we found Outdoor Makeover. Navid and Omid worked hard on improving our front and backyard. They worked quickly and diligently and now we have a beautiful lawn and outdoor entertainment area. Their customer service was excellent. They called or emailed us a number of times just to make sure everything was right and we were satisfied. Great Job - Great Customer Service - Great People!”

    Patrice & David Alpharetta, GA

  • “While we had a general idea of some things we wanted done, Navid was able to envision a work product beyond that which we could have imagined. In addition to being very accessible, Navid was very customer focused and was intent throughout the project of ensuring that our expectations were met. We were amazed at his team’s ability to execute so quickly from “design” to final product. Expectations were more than exceeded, and we would certainly use Navid and Outdoor Makeover on future projects.”

    Larry S. Atlanta, GA

  • “Last June, my wife and I contacted Outdoor Makeover regarding replacing the “weeds” in our front lawn with sod, replacement of all shrubs in the front and back yards and the planting several new trees throughout our property. Once we confirmed the design plan, the Outdoor Makeover crew got started immediately. The job soon took on a life of its own and Navid and his crew were ready and willing to be flexible and get the job done. It is a pleasure to work with a professional that understands the meaning of good communication and customer service. The project came out perfect and we are very happy with our new lawn, shrubs and trees. We look forward to a mutually beneficial, long-term relationship with Outdoor Makeover.”

    Amy & Joe Roswell, GA

  • “Navid and the Outdoor Makeover team are top notch. They found solutions within our price range and help us accomplish our most important priorities. Further, even after we paid them in full and needed them to come back to touch up some items, they came back within 1 week. This is UNHEARD of these days! I would highly recommend them to everyone!”
