A Beautiful Backyard Wonderland

Dallas Backyard Wonderland

The cooler temperatures and sometimes frigid conditions of the Dallas winter may be enough to chase some people indoors. However, with proper preparation and planning, your backyard can become a winter wonderland that’s your favorite place to enjoy the Christmas season. With a few tips from the Dallas pool builders at Riverbend Sandler, you’ll be enjoying your swimming pool and hot tub area all winter long.

Dallas Outdoor Living

We believe there is no such thing as bad weather – just bad attire choices. (Well, most of the time, barring those particularly wintry North Texas days.) With the right outer wear to keep you warm while out and about, you can discover just how fun your Dallas outdoor living space can be even on the chilliest of days.  There might even be some days when all you need are long pants and a light sweater. Either way, might as well get outdoors and soak up the cold while you can!  

Custom Outdoor Fireplaces

Along with the right clothing, there’s no better way to stay warm than with a roaring fire. Our Dallas custom pool designers can create a beautiful designs to incorporate almost any kind of fireplace, fire pit, and/or fire features around your swimming pool, hot tub, and outdoor living space. With the right outdoor seating and patio furniture (which we can help with too) you’ll be looking forward to days cold enough to get the fire started.   

Heating Your Dallas Swimming Pool

A pool heater can make your Dallas swimming pool warm enough to swim pretty much all year round. Today they have very efficient models that are both wallet and eco-friendly. And, of course, the spa or hot tub is always inviting on colder days. Here are some tips to make sure your water is swim-friendly:

  • Start heating up your pool a couple of days in advance
  • Set the temperature between 75 and 80 degrees
  • Use a pool cover to retain heat
  • Heat spa water to between 100 and 102 degrees

Custom LED pool lighting will further set the mood, while also increasing the safety of your poolscape.  And who doesn’t love Christmas lights? Consider stringing white or colored lights around seating areas and other backyard features.
