Who doesn’t love a nice, relaxing pool day during the summer? If it’s finally time to install a swimming pool on your property, several details should be considered before getting started. You’ll want the design of your pool to reflect your personal style and create an outdoor living space that is aesthetically pleasing and functional but also safe for everyone to enjoy.

From the swimming pool builders at Freddy & Co., here are some points to consider when planning your swimming pool installation:

Location and Size 

The location of your swimming pool is one of the most important decisions you will make. Factors such as the size of your property, the type of soil, the proximity to trees and other structures, and the layout of your landscape should all be taken into account when deciding where to place your new pool. Additionally, it’s important to consider how large or small you want your pool to be so that it fits seamlessly into your existing landscape design. 


The materials you choose for constructing the walls and flooring of your swimming pool will affect its longevity. The most common material used for building pools is concrete. Concrete is a popular choice because it allows for more customization, but it can also mean that more maintenance is required to keep it in tip-top shape. 

Safety Features 

When installing a swimming pool, safety must always be a priority. Consider adding features such as fencing or pool covers around the perimeter of your pool area to prevent accidental drowning or unauthorized use by children or pets. Additionally, many states now require homeowners with pools to have alarms installed on all doors leading out onto the deck or patio area to alert family members if someone has gone into the water without supervision.
