Rectangle Vinyl Liner with Spa and Auto Cover in Wolverine Lake, MI by Legendary Escapes Pools (4)

Many homeowners who live on the lakes here in Michigan still enjoy putting in a backyard swimming pool. Sometimes it’s a great opportunity to do a vanishing edge pool that makes it look like the pool is spilling over into the lake.

At this pool, the homeowner wanted a backyard swimming pool and spa for entertaining and enjoyment. The pool was built as a vinyl liner pool, with a corner step, and built to use an automatic cover (a great investment to keep the pool covered, clean, and the heat in for longer seasonal use). A hot tub was also installed that spills over into the pool, and plenty of space was left for patio. The pool guy will tell you that the patio is one of the most important elements of swimming pool design, and one that is often neglected. At the average backyard party, whether there are 8 people in attendance, or 50, the average number of people in the pool at any given time is usually 7. So where are the remaining attendees? They are using the patio area to mix, mingle and converse. So plan your pool to fit as many as you’d like, and then build your patio to make sure they all have a comfortable place to hang out, whether in the pool or not.
