5 amazing things to do with your Perth Backyard once your pool is removed
So you’ve finally made the decision to get rid of that swimming pool but you’re not sure what to do with your backyard once it’s gone? Most of the Perth people we talk to each week about swimming pool removal feel exactly the same way. That said, there are loads of low maintenance, reasonably priced options that you can take to fill in the void once your pool is gone.
1 – A rockery
The great thing about a rockery peppered with succulents or cacti is that you are basically setting yourself up for a zero maintenance yard. They are also incredibly attractive and use a lot less water than other kinds of gardens.
2 – Artificial turf
If you’re someone who really doesn’t want to replace their pool with a whole lot of grass that you’ll have to mow then artificial grass can be a great option. When we took out Marie’s pool she went down that track.
3 – A pergola
Extending your living space outdoors is a great way to make use of the place where your pool used to be. Putting in a covered outdoor seating area is one way that a lot of our customers go when they’re planning what to do with the extra space.
4 – A granny flat
As long as you get a compaction certificate after your pool has been removed then you can build another structure. One that you could potentially rent out for extra income or use as space for guests when you have visitors.
5 – A herb garden
There are plenty of hardy herbs that don’t take a lot of looking after, they’re fresh, attractive and can add something special to your meals too. Consider rosemary, thyme and oregano for hard wearing and low maintenance – not to mention tasty!
