How Do I Know if I’m Choosing the Right Pool Shape for My Yard and Home?

How do I know if I’m choosing the right pool shape for my yard and home? Getting a pool for your backyard is a big undertaking. Before you add the pool, you have many things to consider, such as the type of pool, the shape of the pool, and all of the extras you want your backyard oasis to include. You’re obviously doing your homework to make sure you invest in a pool that will be an all-around win for everyone.

Goodall Pools & Spas has been creating sparkling waterscapes for Pennsylvanians for 60 years. Our experienced team can help you choose the perfect pool that will fit your yard and match the appearance of your home. 

Choosing the Right Pool Shape for My Yard and Home

Consider the Choices at Hand

Fiberglass Pools

First, you want to consider the choices at hand for your new pool. One popular option is a fiberglass pool. These are manufactured as a single-piece shell that comes ready to install in your yard. If you go this route, you will select from the pool shapes that are available. And then you can still customize the pool by adding features and choosing colors and amenities that will complement your house.

Vinyl-Liner Pools

There is a little more freedom to personalize your pool shape when you choose a vinyl-liner pool. You get to specify the depth, shape, and size of the pool. If your yard has a unique shape, a vinyl-liner pool makes a great option because of the many ways you can customize its design.

Above-Ground Pools

Maybe you want to get a sturdy above-ground pool that you can install yourself. We have kits from  Radiant Pools® that are top of the line. Many people assume that an above-ground pool can only be round, but Radiant has several shapes to choose from. 

Strategically Select the Shape

Next, you want the shape of the pool to naturally beautify your home. The pool should not occupy the entire yard, although it can be tempting to go big when adding a center for entertainment. Pool shapes each offer unique characteristics. 

For instance, a round or oval pool is often used in big yards. They offer plenty of space for splashing and swimming with friends and family. On the other hand, rectangular pools are popular because of the space they provide for more extensive swimming. And some shapes are chosen by homeowners just because they are aesthetically pleasing. 

When you are planning for the pool, you need to also keep in mind all of the extra items you want to eventually have in the backyard, such as a spectacular spa, a fire pit, a patio, or whatever your dream area will include. Plan the pool shape accordingly so that the design all goes together and makes your home even more attractive and valuable.
