But if you opt for a planning garden with pool you are going to need to take into account a lot of important factors. Among them, there is the installation and size of the pool. If you have a big garden, make a swimming pool with a depth of more than 3m. Small pools and inflatable pools are not always suitable for small terraces because there is always a risk of flooding. These pools may be very reasonably priced, but they do not have built-in filters and you will need to manually change the water manually.

What other factors to consider before starting your development swimming pool ? First of all, you have to think carefully if you are really going to use this pool. Or, at least, use it enough to justify such an investment. Do you live in an area where it is nice enough to use the pool regularly? You must also be prepared to cover the pool in winter and fall so that it does not freeze.

You must think carefully about where you will build or install the pool. It must be an open and sunny space, but at the same time sheltered from the wind. Avoid placing your pool in a place where there are many trees so you do not have to clean the fallen leaves every day. The pool should preferably be near locker rooms and close enough to your house for comfort.

How are you going to use your pool? From the answer to this question will depend the shape and size of the pool. If you build your pool just to cool off, or rather for a decorative purpose, then you can opt for a pool with a rounded or irregular shape. But in case you want to be able to swim in your pool quite often, then the pool should be big enough, deep enough and with a rectangular shape. A pool that is less than 15m is not a good place to swim.

You can choose between natural stone, terracotta or clay that may be easier to incorporate into your garden decor. Are you going to make a traditional concrete, fiberglass or vinyl coating ? These are the most used materials for the construction of contemporary pools.
