The pool should be located in a spot that gets enough sunshine and is also away from the shadow of the house, it is also worthwhile setting up the pool in an area that is not close to any trees, as falling leaves might end up dirtying the pool.

4. Minimalism

Consider an uncluttered backyard for your pool area, the less furniture and items in your garden area, the more simple and balanced it will look.

5. A rooftop pool
