Inground Pool Prices | Splash Pools and Construction

 Inground Pool Prices – How it works!

At Splash Pools and Construction, Inc., we specialize in inground gunite (concrete) swimming pools. On our website we have gallery to look at Pools by Price.  This is a general starting point for pool pricing, but we cannot give you an accurate price until we meet with you, see your yard and hear what kind of pool you want. We get phone calls all the time asking for general pool pricing and this is very difficult to do because there are so many variables. Asking for pool pricing is similar to asking for a price of a custom home…how custom, what size, etc. Inground pool prices vary greatly, because each pool built by Splash is a custom design.

Small Pool Designs | Splash Pools and Construction

small pool designs

Small Pool Designs are a current trend right now!

Small pool designs are great for several reasons….

  1. Small pool designs fit well in Southern California backyards
  2. Small pool designs allow for extra space for outdoor living areas or built-in-BBQs
  3. Small pool designs can cost less  – less materials required
  4. Small pool designs work well for modern pool styles
  5. Small pool designs require us to get creative with the layout–which is fun for us

Here are two small pool designs that we built for Toll Brothers Model Homes at Baker Ranch.

These pools both have a modern style.

The first pool has black granite tile on the zero edge spa and an overflow edge pool that flows into a rock basin. The pool is built right up against the house and has a raised decorative wall at the back with copper spicket water features.

The second pool is the video is flush with the surrounding decking and zero edge. At the back left, you can barely see the beautiful green wall that accentuates this pool design. Surrounding this pool, you can see there was plenty of room for the built in BBQ and outdoor living area.

Swim up bar with in-pool seating is both convenient and fun for the entertainers!

Adding a reef step or baja step to your swimming pool is fantastic for young children and adults! Adults enjoy sitting in the shallow water relaxing on the warmer days and this is great for lounge chairs too!

Why settle with one waterfall when you can have three or four? This rock pool has an entire wall of waterfalls to enjoy in this personal oasis backyard.

Just because you have a small pool, doesn’t mean it has to be boring. Adding a feature such as this curved tile wall with water fall adds so much to the design of this pool.

2017 Pool Design Trends | Splash Pools and Construction

2017 Pool Design Trends

Thank you for visiting the Splash Pools and Construction blog.

The following are five design trends that we see for swimming pools in 2017.

1. Smaller Pools

We see a trend of smaller pools and more projects that are spa only. People used to want to fit as large of a pool as possible into their backyard, but the 2017 pool design trends to people wanting a smaller pool or spa only with plenty of space for an outdoor living area, outdoor kitchen or other lounging area. This works well with small Southern California backyards where space is already limited. We consider a pool to be smaller if it is less than 600 square feet.

2017 Pool Design Trends, small pools

2. Water Features

Water features are still very popular and can be added to a pool or as a separate focal point in the back or front yard. We’ve designed and installed anything from deck jets and waterfalls in pools to stand alone three tiered foundations and large rock water feature walls. The image below is an acrylic sphere rotating water feature sitting in a bed of natural rocks.

2017 Pool Design Trends, water features

3. Fire Features

Fire features with pools and water features are very trendy right now. The technology available for fire features allows us to be able to construct fire feature bowls on pedestals in swimming pool so that they appear to be floating. We can also add fire features surrounding the pool or in addition to a stand alone water feature. If you look back at our blog post about the new pool in Yorba Linda you can see the custom water and fire feature that we built.

2017 Pool Design Trends, fire features

4. Acrylic Wall Pools

Raised pools with acrylic walls are definitely a 2017 pool design trend! After building several pools with acrylic walls for Toll Brothers, we have received request after request for a similar design. Acrylic wall pools require coordination with a structural engineer and attention to detail. The 2.5” thick pieces of acrylic must fit perfectly into slots within columns to maintain the structural integrity and prevent leaks. Depending on the layout of the yard, acrylic has been craned over the house for installation because of the weight. The good news is that we know how to do this and have built several acrylic wall pools.

2017 Pool Design Trends, acrylic walls, acrylic pool, glass pool

5. Clean Sleek / Modern Look

Modern style pools with a clean sleek look are also a 2017 pool design trend. Most people are choosing straight lines, vanishing or overflow edges and contemporary design elements. The most interesting thing about this trend is that a lot of people with traditional style homes are opting for a modern style backyard and pool–the styles are being mixed together and that is okay! If you have a Tuscan or Spanish style home, it’s okay to add a contemporary style pool.

Swimming Pool and Landscape Construction Yorba Linda, splash pools

Yorba Linda Swimming Pool and Landscape Construction

Splash Pools is your swimming pool and landscape construction company for Yorba Linda projects! We are ready to start on your Yorba Linda Swimming Pool and Landscape construction.

Swimming Pool and Landscape Construction Yorba Linda

Recent Yorba Linda Swimming Pool Project

We recently completed this swimming pool and more in the hills of Yorba Linda. The project was designed by the talented Patrick May Landscape Design and we were able to bring the project to fruition.

Swimming Pool and Landscape Construction Yorba Linda, water feature, fire feature

When you walk out of the house to the backyard, you first see a beautiful glass tile overflow water feature with a fire feature in the middle. Out from the fire/water feature is a sundial in the decking that was constructed with white cement. Out from the sundial comes the vanishing edge pool, all along a similar radial curve.

The entire backyard design takes advantage of the beautiful view from this Yorba Linda home. The vanishing edge pool sits on caissons (structural posts that go about 20-30 feet down into the ground) and the end of the pool is curved along the edge of the yard. We are able to work with difficult pool sites like this to make your dream a reality. In addition to a vanishing edge pool, there is a vanishing edge spa to the left, separated from the pool. The pool and spa feature glass tiles, pre-cast coping and travertine decking.

Swimming Pool and Landscape Construction Yorba Linda

Landscape planters with beautiful trees were carefully placed between the travertine decking and you go up a few steps to a nice lounging area.

There is also an exercise spa that is towards the side yard and a large built in BBQ and bar seating area.

We also built a large rock water feature wall at the front driveway of this fabulous Yorba Linda property.

Outdoor Living Area, Outdoor Entertaining

2017 Outdoor Living Areas–Ideas!

Your outdoor living area really becomes an extension of your home when it is designed properly. The trend is sometimes called outdoor rooms or bringing the indoors out––how properly worded that your outdoor space is an extension of your home in both comfort and accessibility.

Having a home with large windows and doors to visually or physically have easy access outdoors is the first step. Next, you want to make sure that your outdoor living area is comfortable with ample seating options and entertainment. We can add fireplace, firepit, TV, relaxing water features, serene landscape and more. Maybe you like to entertain and play a lot games, so comfortable seating with tables would be a great choice. We can design built in seating areas and bar areas for seating. It is also great to add outdoor furniture to your living area. There are beautiful sofas that are made with outdoor fabrics so that you can have very comfortable seating. Don’t forget to have a big and comfortable outdoor dining area!

2017 Outdoor Living Areas

Your outdoor living area would function best with a covered structure, whether is a wood patio structure, fabric canopy, extension of the house or stand alone structure, we can help!
