How To Build a Swimming Pool on a Slope

Aug 02, 2021

If you want a pool but live on a sloping block, the idea of installing one may seem too hard. We’re here to tell you there is a simple solution – an above ground swimming pool. Above ground pools are perfect for sloped yards. You’ll end up with a finished product that not only looks great but is also safe and hassle-free.

Here’s what you need to know.

Narellan Pools Can Turn Your Sloping Block Into A Backyard Oasis

If you have a sloped block, Narellan Pools has a wide variety of above ground pool designs to choose from. 

The obvious choice is to install an inground swimming pool. On a sloping block, this can be expensive and time-consuming. A faster and more affordable option is an above ground fibreglass pool. Craning a pool shell onto a levelled pad, which is surrounded by a retaining wall and finished with a beautiful deck, can be cheaper (and is certainly faster) than digging a big hole in the ground!

If your above ground pool extends off your home and into the horizon, a deck will give the finishing touch. Design your deck to wrap around the pool, ensuring ample space for a couple of sun loungers and a cantilever umbrella. When planning your above ground pool, consider if you want to add a spa. Spa pools are the perfect place to relax whilst the kids are frolicking about in the main pool.

Whatever you decide, Narellan Pools can help.

Above Ground Pool Installation Process

The best thing about above ground swimming pools is that they’re easier to install than inground swimming pools. Your local Narellan Pools builder will start by meeting with you to choose a pool design you love, along with deciding where you’re going to put the pool in your backyard. Once you’ve chosen the perfect pool design, they’ll arrange any necessary licenses and permits to complete the development. This process can take a few weeks, depending on how busy your local government is.

Once approved, the installation of your fibreglass above ground pool will start. Your pool building team flatten the land to ensure it’s stable and even, and build retaining walls if you have a sloping yard that needs a little extra stability. They’ll remove any problem areas, such as trees or bushes, and arrange for the delivery of your pool. From there, the pool is installed and secured in place, ready for any necessary landscaping (we can help you with this too!).
