If you can dream it, we can probably design it. However there are some factors you may need to think about when deciding on a particular shape or size.

The first thing to keep in mind when deciding on a shape and size is your property line. If your yard is 20’ by 40’ for example, you will not be able to fit a 20’ by 40’ pool. All in-ground pool installations whether it be a vinyl liner pool or not, needs an extensive excavation which may extend about three feet beyond the perimeter of the size you are looking for.

A question you should ask yourself when deciding on a shape and size is what do I want to do around the pool? Are you looking for the biggest pool that can fit in your yard? If so, a rectangle shape may be best for you as these shapes maximize the actual surface area and volume of your pool. If you are looking for a pool that includes a lot of deck space and landscaping around it, a freeform pool may be for you.

Free-form pools stray away from your typical rectangular shaped pool and include large curves and radii. Kidney shapes and Mirage shapes (see our website) are among the most popular free-form shapes. With these shapes, your landscaper can get creative with placement of plants as well as outdoor furniture.
