With February almost behind us, summer is starting to feel closer than ever. And although you might still be feeling a winter chill in the air, now’s the best time to start preparing for swim season in Dallas and the DFW area!
Why start preparing for summer now? This time of year is actually the perfect time to start considering important backyard improvements for summer. Installing a custom pool in Dallas, or building other outdoor improvement projects like an outdoor living area, outdoor kitchen, or improved outdoor lighting, are all projects that take time to implement.
You don’t want to start building your new pool during the prime swim season! Instead, you can get started today, and have everything ready for those prime summer months. To help you prepare your outdoor spaces for the upcoming summer months, the team at Pool Quest has put together a few tips below.
Think about new construction vs. remodeling
The biggest decision you’ll be making this summer is between building an entirely new backyard project, or just remodeling an existing outdoor element. If you’ve already got an inground pool in Dallas, and you just want to spuce it up for the new year, remodeling is a great option. On the other hand, if you think your backyard is missing something you’d really enjoy- like an outdoor kitchen, now’s the perfect time to begin a new construction project.
Design and plan before you build
Don’t rush in to a project that you’re not sure about! Now’s the time to start carefully planning and designing your new backyard improvements. Make sure that your family is onboard too! Remember that new projects you take on will last for years, and will also have an impact on the value of your home, so be sure to plan for improvements that are both practical and enjoyable.
Don’t forget the small stuff
Of course, we all want to start dreaming about having an amazing new custom designed pool, or a fantastic new landscaping project. But don’t forget that smaller, less immediately obvious outdoor elements have a big impact as well. For example, a quality outdoor lighting system in Dallas will have a major impact on how you enjoy your backyard after dark. You also want to consider your irrigation system this summer – for that, our check out our sister company, Quest Irrigation.
