Pool Side is My Best Side: Custom Pool Design Options

When it comes to customizing your swimming pool, the options are truly unlimited! If you can dream it up, our team will help you make it a reality. How amazing is swimming up to a bar with in-water seating? What about floating through archways and overhangs, perfect for escaping direct sunlight? Or slipping down a slide that just won’t quit? Designing your custom pool is lots of fun!

As you design your pool, consider, what is my pool style? Are you wanting a contemporary look with clean lines and inspiring features? Maybe you prefer a resort flair complete with cascading waterfalls, hidden nooks, and luscious landscaping. Another option is the freeform scene. It creates a natural, relaxed atmosphere for all your swimming needs.

No matter what your pool style is, we can help you design just what you desire.

Seas The Day: When to Build Your Custom Pool

Speak with The Green Scene team to find out when it’s the best time to build your custom pool.

Looking for the best time of year to build your custom pool? The short answer is, now is the best time! By starting your pool build now, you are that much closer to sitting poolside, enjoying the sunshine and water. With the great year-round temperatures in the San Fernando Valley, swimming any time of year is an option. 

However, the best time of year to build a pool is typically in the cooler months. This is due to typically less busy schedules, and faster build times. When you call to schedule your design consultation, ask our team what the best time of year is to build. We’ll give you a realistic timeline of when we can get the job done!

A Splashing Good Time: Customizing Your Pool

Adding features to your custom pool like a Baja shelf creates a space for ultimate relaxation.

You want your custom pool to be unique, breathtaking, useful, and perfect for your backyard. First, it should be unique and breathtaking. Dream up a grand plan for your pool’s shape, in-water and out-of-water features, the surrounding areas, and more. Work with our design team to help get your ideas on paper and make a cohesive plan. Check out these pool design trends for more inspiration.  

Next you want your pool to be useful. How you plan to use your pool is important to consider as you design it. Will you primarily use your pool for exercise? If so, we should make at least one side long enough for lap swimming. Do you plan to mostly relax by the pool and enjoy the occasional dip in the water? Then we should definitely add a Baja shelf and perhaps a waterfall or other in-pool seating options. 

Deep Dive: Financial Planning for Your Custom Pool

The beauty of a custom-made pool is you can control every aspect, including the cost. Make your purchase increase or decrease with each decision. As you design your custom pool with our team of experts, they will help you sort through these details and edit as you’d like. 

There are many things that can make the cost fluctuate from type and number of features, size of your pool, materials you choose, landscaping, and the surrounding area. The Green Scene also offers financing through HFS Financial, the trusted industry leader for financing backyard renovations. Learn more about our swimming pool financing options
