In fact, certain pool designs can actually even allude the appearance of an even bigger backyard. Keep reading to learn about the pool designs that work best in smaller backyards.

    #1 A plunge pool
    A plunge pool is a small, yet deep, pool that is made for cooling off, soaking, and relaxing. It is an ideal pool for small spaces. While it isn’t as useful as a lap pool or a regular full-sized swimming pool, it is still a luxury and is typically a highly aesthetical addition to a backyard. While your plunge pool will create a lovely place to cool off and relax, it is also highly

    attractive cost wise. Due to the volume and smaller circumference of the plunge pool, it is less-expensive to build and to maintain.

    #2 A small square pool
    Small square pools can fit in whichever corner, or directly in the center of your backyard. Many people place them in the center of their yard as the focus, or right up against the house, built into the deck. The beauty is that you can decide on the size, and the classic shape will fit in pretty much anywhere. These pools work best with shallow depths, or with a solo seat/stepping stone built into the side, or around the whole square to avoid taking up too much space.

    #4 A small rectangle pool
    If you want to go even more classic, you can go with more of a small rectangular shape. These pools work great when they are built right into the outline of a house. You can easily fit this design into a corner or directly along the outer wall of your home and it will double as a place to relax and swim, as well as an amazingly aesthetic characteristic of your home.

    #5 A spa that doubles as a pool
    Many people opt for the spa that doubles as a pool, so that they can have the best of both worlds. This design allows for small spaces, as well as accommodates you in the variations of Texas’s weather conditions.

    #6 A narrow lap pool alongside the houses outer wall
