Fall is a Great Time to Start Planning a New Pool

Labor Day traditionally marks the end of summer for many homeowners, and with it, those with pools start preparing to close them down for the season. What if you’re a homeowner who doesn’t have a pool, but has been dreaming of having one all summer long? Now is the perfect time to begin planning a new pool! While it may seem too early to start designing and planning out a new pool, homeowners who start in the fall will be able to start enjoying it by the time Memorial Day rolls around next May. Here are some of the reasons why.


When it comes to designing a new pool, there are many complex factors to consider. Many homeowners will think about all of the various additions and options available, such as patios, walkways, and lighting. However, one of the most important factors many don’t think about is how a new pool should be integrated into existing landscape features. Hiring a professional landscaper such as TDH Landscaping for your pool design in the fall ensures that your pool is designed and placed in the best location for your landscape while still getting all of the features you want.


Contractors aren’t the only ones who are busy with projects during the spring and summer. Your local permit office will likely be inundated with applications during this time as well. And waiting until the busy season to apply for permits is a sure way to delay your new pool project. But by planning your pool in the fall, you can get all of your necessary permits ahead of time when the permit office is less busy. And if changes need to be made to your application at all, they can be done with relative ease.

The Build

Building out the actual pool usually takes around 3-6 weeks to complete, depending on the materials used. However, the surrounding landscaping takes a lot longer – on average, around 2-4 months is needed for this part of the installation. This is another reason why planning early is a smart course of action if you want to start enjoying your new pool next summer.


Once the new pool is installed, we can begin planting the surrounding landscape. Ideally, the pool and landscape/hardscape features are installed during the fall and winter months, giving us the entire spring season to work on planting trees, shrubs, and flowers around the pool area!
