In an ideal world, we’d all have the proper space and budget to have one of the sublime swimming pools we featured recently. But the reality is, not all of us can. Some homes have soil issues that make digging and excavation impossible. Or perhaps the yard area is small. Quite often, however, an above ground swimming pool is the only solution to overcoming these limitations.
In recent years, above-ground swimming pools have been enjoying a resurgence in popularity. Why? Well, for starters, they’ve always been less expensive than in-ground pools, a point that is not lost on pool shoppers. Other selling points: above-ground pools are a breeze to install compared to building in-ground pools, many can be disassembled at the end of swim season, and that portability makes them good choices for renters or those who would like to take their pool with them when they move.
