The pool is back-filled with gravel and dirt. You won’t be able to build on top of a partially removed pool. If you’re selling your home in the near future and want to add value to it, it’s probably best to opt for full removal.

Let Us Upgrade Your Landscaping

Not only can you attract buyers who prefer not to maintain pools, but you can also make use of that space to add value to your home (or just for you to enjoy). Consider these options:

  • Playgrounds: Young families love big backyards with slides or climbing frames. Plus, few mothers want to worry about a pool when they have an adventurous toddler.
  • Outdoor entertaining: With your pool demolished, you could have a lot more seating in your yard, so you can entertain more people. Add a fire pit, and you have a rustic relaxation spot that all buyers would love.
  • Food: Barbeques, stone ovens, rotisserie pits, smokers, the list of backyard cooking options goes on and on. Find out why outdoor cooking is exploding in popularity.
  • Garden: Not only does a new garden add a peaceful ambiance to your backyard, retirees often desire large gardens, but don’t want to do the work to put them in. Adding a garden can increase your home’s appeal to seniors.
