Having designed and built your dream home already, you may be having that internal debate of whether you should add a swimming pool to your garden.
Well, there certainly are some awesome reasons to do just that. A swimming pool in your garden adds a unique dimension to the possibilities of fun and quality time that you can have with your family.
1. Teach Your Children to Swim
For those parents whose children are still young, having a swimming pool in the garden offers the priceless opportunity to teach your children to swim. This important life skill can be learned by your kids in their own backyard.
Swimming with your children can be a family activity that everybody looks forward to. The pool will be a center of fun and games throughout the years.
2. Water Sports and Pool Parties
Pool parties are landmark events in children’s lives because of the great fun that they have during these occasions. The usual cause for this kind of celebration is a birthday party with cousins and friends invited for food and games.
For older kids or the kids at heart, a swimming pool also can be a place for games. Water sports like pool volleyball and basketball are great ways to have fun. Just make sure to get top-rated basketball goals for your pool so that they do not break easily like the cheaper ones tend to do.
Dunking during a water basketball game is a great move but if the basketball goal breaks from one dunk then the fun is lost. Some basketball goals are inflatable and can float in the center of the pool which makes the game much more interesting.
3. Rest and Relaxation
A garden swimming pool is a great place to relax. The garden itself is calming but when combined with a swimming pool and the refreshing feeling that a nice swim can bring, a whole day can float away in a very relaxed way.
You can float on your back or lie down on a floater even as you allow the water to lull you into a restful state.
And when you finish swimming in the pool you can hang out beside it while enjoying your favorite refreshments.
4. Quality Family Time
A swimming pool has the potential to be a very unique feature of your home and garden.
By investing in and designing your own swimming pool in the garden you are creating a special place for your family to spend quality time. You can have al fresco meals beside the pool on hot days and warm evenings.
This space becomes a building block for a solid family tradition of shared quality time.

The refreshing experience that a swimming pool can bring will certainly make your home and garden a unique and special place where you and your family can make lasting memories.
