Photos of one homeowner's experience making a cheap blue pool blend in to a serene backyard.

It’s cold in Missouri and as I sit here sipping tea and dreaming of summer, I thought I’d share a few photos I snapped during a garden tour in Springfield, Missouri last year.

It was a great tour with lots of natural water features, which I love, but I was most impressed by the creative landscaping done around this modest pool. Maybe you are like me and crave the cool comfort of a swimming pool in the heat of summer, but am stuck between not having the cash to finance an in-ground pool and being too concerned with aesthetics to ever add a big blue above ground pool to an otherwise lovely backyard. These creative homeowners found a solution:

A small deck and fence conceal this easy-set style above ground pool. With dramatic ornamental grasses planted just outside the fence, the only hint of a pool from across the yard is an inviting sliver of cool blue rising above the fence. A raised deck with umbrella provides the perfect spot for parents to supervise swimming pool fun.
