This backyard oasis is the perfect retreat for relaxation. The luxurious lagoon-style pool is surrounded by lush flowering plants and palm trees. Boulders define the wading pool area that's accented by three lighted fountain jets.
On hot days, poolside at this serene pool is where you want to be. A cupola-topped pool house provides a convenient locale to change into your suit while teak lounge chairs are a cozy spot for sunning.
Clean, straight lines characterize this modern backyard, which features an angular pool and hot tub with a dark-stained wood deck. Concrete walkways surround swaths of green grass, and a small structure with a pergola is a convenient pool house.
Nestled between the main house and the guest house lies a fully equipped summer kitchen, waterfall and infinity edge pool. There's no skimping on the views from every angle of the outdoor living space. It's easy to escape at this mountain retreat.
It’s vital to blow out the pipes on an in-ground pool. Call a professional if you’re uncertain how to do this procedure—it’s what protects the water lines from freezing. Afterwards, plug the return jets and install a Gizzmo in the skimmer to prevent it from cracking. If you do these few tasks, you don’t have to drain the pool for winter unless you have ornamental tile edging the pool. In that case, drain water 4 inches below the tile.
