5 Stunning Small Backyard Pool Ideas for 2024

Having a pool and deck in your very own backyard is a dream for most people—a place to relax, share in the zen with friends and family or simply enjoy the sun on a hot summer day. But what if you don’t have a big backyard? That doesn’t mean you can’t have a stunning pool that fits perfectly in your space.

Here are 5 ideas catered to pools for small backyards that’ll make you feel like you’re in a luxurious oasis—without taking up too much space.

1. Freeform Design

Who says pools have to be square or rectangular? A pool with curves that ebb and flow with your property can add a unique, modern touch to your backyard. Not only does a freeform pool look inviting, but the curved edges can be customized to make the most of your space.

Whether you have an oak tree you want to keep, or a fire pit you want to incorporate, we can use smooth curves and designs to create a pool that fits seamlessly in your backyard.

2. Badu Jet

If you want to swim laps or engage in hydrotherapy but don’t have the space in your yard to build a lap pool, we offer the swim-in-place Badu Jet System. This system is incorporated into your pool to blast water, creating a jet stream that you can swim against. This allows you to swim laps without the lengths of an Olympic pool. 

It’s known as the “water treadmill,” giving you a unique propulsion system for customizable water flow.

3. Faux Infinity Edge Pool

For those with limited space who still want the illusion of an endless pool, a faux infinity edge pool for small backyards is the way to go. The pool’s edge is designed with a slight slope, giving the appearance of water cascading down into the horizon. It’s a perfect blend of elegance and functionality.

4. Natural Elements

Incorporate your pool seamlessly into your backyard by surrounding it with natural elements. Use rocks, plants, and even a waterfall feature to soften the edges of your space while creating a relaxing environment that blends in with its surroundings.

Our pool designs can incorporate natural rock features to infuse a touch of nature into your backyard. We source boulders from the southeastern United States, ensuring a genuine and natural aesthetic that envelops your pool area. Enhanced by thoughtfully placed planter beds and the beautiful presence of palm trees, you will have the elements of nature in your own backyard.

5. Hot Tub and Pool Combined

When you’re working with a small space, it can be easy to dismiss the idea of a hot tub and a pool. In reality, a small backyard is the perfect space to combine the two, giving you the best of both worlds without taking up too much room. We often design smaller pools with a heater and therapy jets so you can dunk in your swimming pool for a refresh in the summer, or turn the heat up and relax on the therapy jets in the winter.

Don’t compromise—combine the two!
