Advantages of a Grass Surround Pool

Posted: Sat, 01 Aug 2020

You' ve heard the old adage that the grass is always greener on the other side. Well, for some pool owners there’s a simple solution to this problem – just swim to the other side.

The pool owners we’re talking about are the ones who have grass surrounding their pools. A grass-surround pool is a strikingly minimalist alternative to a traditional pool deck fashioned out of concrete, wood, or pavers. And unlike other posh pool features, it’s actually cheaper than the standard options.

Of course, a grass pool deck also comes with its share of drawbacks, some of which you can probably guess. Here’s a rundown of the pros and cons of a grass-edge pool – from the obvious to the obscure.

Advantages of a Grass-Surround Pool

To start, here are the main reasons why you might want to skip a traditional pool deck in favor of a pool with grass around it.

Elegant in appearance. It’s safe to say that most people who choose grass-edge pools are attracted by their clean and classy aesthetics. A pool stripped to its basics and surrounded by a manicured lawn is the very definition of “easy on the eyes.”

Space saving. Americans love their grass lawns, for reasons no one fully understands. Whatever your reasons for being enamored of your lawn, you can preserve more of it by passing on the pool deck.

Comfortable for bare feet. Unlike the typical pool deck, grass is soft and doesn’t get overly hot on a sunny day. Grass is also nature’s nonslip surface, making it a safer option than deck materials that get slippery when wet.

Cheaper than the alternatives. A pool deck tends to be one of the more expensive components of a pool project, and can get especially pricey if you choose premium materials such as travertine. In comparison, the cost of maintaining grass around your pool is minor.
