How big does my backyard have to be? / How much room do you need for a pool? / Is my backyard big enough for a pool?

At Sunnyview Pools, we can turn any backyard into an oasis. The smaller the backyard, the more limited the pool choices, but we can still make many great options work for you!

But even if you have a small backyard, we can help you design your pool to make it work! A few feet of space should be left along at least one edge of your pool so you can easily access the pool for repairs. Think about any access that you might need to items behind the pool, such as fences, sheds or gardens that could end up being separated from the house by the pool. Fiberglass pools come in pre-fabricated shells, they are less easy to custom make, and typically range from 10’x20’ to 18’x43’. Your fiberglass pool will probably be limited in size anyway due to the specifications of the width allowance on your local roads. But of course with all the manufacturers out there, you’re bound to find one that fits your needs and your backyard.

Concrete pools can be fitted into any backyard, as they are completely customizable. Vinyl liners are also customizable (although it’s easier to purchase standard-size vinyl liners). Keep in mind that if you have children, it might be nice to retain a little bit of lawn in the backyard where they can still play.

Use an internet search engine to view examples of pools in small backyards to give you ideas, and of course give us a call; we’d be glad to help you out!
