Creating the Perfect Poolside Party Area in Clinton Twp., MI

Clinton Twp., MI Gunite Pool, Paver Sun DeckPerhaps you are ready to add a pool to your backyard in Clinton Twp., MI. Pools are great features, and a gunite pool will give you a safe, long-lasting pool that you and your family can enjoy for years. But for most of our clients, the pool is just the beginning. Your pool area should be a great place to entertain friends and family, a fun place for your kids to play, and an attractive part of your Clinton Township home. Before we start planning your pool, here are some great features that will make your poolside an amazing place to entertain.

Let’s Start at the Beginning

You need a pool. So we recommend that you install a gunite pool in your backyard. Why? Well because not only is a gunite pool incredibly safe and durable but your options are endless when you chose this material. Gunite is a sprayed on material that we use to coat your pool surface, after we’ve dug the hole and installed the base. Gunite has a gentle texture that gives your pool a non-slip surface, but isn’t rough on your feet. Because gunite is sprayed onto the surface of your pool, you aren’t stuck with the same shape pool that everyone else has. Want a pool that has multiple levels, we can do that. How about a hot tub? Gunite is the perfect surface for your backyard hot tub, as well.

The Patio

Now, you’ve got a great pool, it’s time to add a great patio and sun deck. Brick pavers are a perfect material for your poolside patio. First, they tie in well with your gunite pool surface, creating an almost seamless junction between patio and pool. This is good, because it keeps your pool from leaking and protects your patio from shifting. Brick pavers come in a variety of shapes, sizes, colors and textures, so if you’ve had a vision of how you want your poolside patio to look, we can make it happen with brick pavers. Brick pavers add extra safety to your pool area. They have a gentle texture that helps keep your patio non-slip. And, brick pavers don’t tend to get as hot as concrete or stone pavers.

The Extras

This is the fun part. The great thing about brick pavers is that we can build just about anything you can imagine with pavers, and all of your features will match perfectly. So what features do we think make a great poolside party area? Let’s start with a great sitting area. This space should be open enough to allow room for couches, comfy chairs and a great table. For those that don’t want to swim, this is the perfect place to hang out. Then install a retaining wall around the patio, incorporating a few tanning tables along the way. These wide slabs of stone, on your brick paver retaining wall, are great places to spread a towel and catch some rays, once you are done in your pool. Cover your seating area with a pergola for some shade and build a fireplace with beautiful brick pavers, to keep the party going after the sun goes down. If this isn’t enough, you may want to consider a wet bar and a small outdoor kitchen, so no one ever has to leave the pool.

Poolside entertaining has never been easier than it is when you install a beautiful gunite pool with a custom brick paver patio or sun deck with all of the bells and whistles. Your backyard will be the envy of the neighborhood, and the place where everyone wants to hang out. Even better, it will be a great space that you will want to hang out in too.
