Today’s the day of Beauteeful Living’s Outdoor Patio Tour as part of the Summer Garden Tour and Outdoor Spaces Blog Hop! I’d like to thank my lovely friend Tara from Lehman Lane for hosting this week-long tour. In last week’s post, I shared a preview of our new in-ground pool. I’m so glad I can finally share photos of our completed pool along with some of my favorite parts of our backyard!
I will keep the writing brief as I know this will be a photo-heavy post.
Our New In-ground Pool
When you enter the yard, our pool will likely be the first thing you notice. I received a number of comments from readers following last week’s post that they too were considering adding a pool to their home. Since I’ve documented the entire pool installation process, it is my plan to create an e-book on this topic. Hopefully, I get to it before end of summer. I’ll keep you all posted. 🙂
Here is a full view of our new fiberglass pool. This free-form shaped pool is 14 feet by 30 feet in size. I highly suggest a fiberglass pool over other options available. Although more costly than a vinyl pool, after weighing in all the benefits, my husband and I knew that a fiberglass pool was most suitable for our backyard.
I love the sound of water cascading from the slide and waterfall area!
As soon as I saw this yard flag, I knew I had to have it in our backyard. It’s just the tropical touch that we needed. 🙂
Dining Area off Kitchen
We have a large wooden deck off our kitchen. As soon as you walk through our sliding doors, you will see this outdoor dining area. We used to have a rectangular table that seated 6 – 8 in this area. Since installing our new pool, we decided to move the bigger table downstairs, closer to the pool.
The photo below shows the bistro set that I purchased over 8 years ago. It’s still in great condition! This area is the perfect breakfast spot for my family of four. I love the view of our pool while sitting here and enjoying my meal. 🙂
My family and I practically live outdoors during the summer months.
Patio Conversation Area
This patio conversation area is one of my favorite spots in our backyard. More about this area in an upcoming post! I’m doing a summer home tour next week. 🙂
Loving these outdoor pillows I recently purchased to complement our new patio furniture set.
I love “dressing up” the conversation area with colorful accents and natural greenery.
Night time View of Backyard
As I wrap up my Outdoor Patio Tour, I’d like to leave you with a nighttime view of our backyard. The LED lights from our pool are among my favorite features of our new pool.
I’m so thrilled with the results of all the changes we’ve made to our backyard in the 11 years we’ve lived here. Totally worth the effort and money spent! It’s a “backyard retreat” that my family and I will enjoy for years to come.
