One idea would be to have the pool placed in the backyard but adjacent to the house. You could have a thick glass wall that separates them and you could actually see the water on your window. Of course, it’s a more extravagant idea. There are also simpler options. For example, you could have an outdoor sitting and lounge area with the pool on one side and with lounge chairs, tables and umbrellas on the other.

You could also put the pool in the garden and combine the two concepts. A pathway can lead to the pool and it can be surrounded by vegetation and beautiful flowers. Another thing to think about are the accessories. For example, you could have a slide near the pool and that would be fun for everyone.You could also have a hot tub and a pool and the two can be connected. There are so many different options to explore. It’s why it’s better if you actually visualize them and adapt them to your own case.
