More and more people are opting in for the above ground swimming pool because of its affordability. They provide the perfect retreat during the summer season for those who live in hot zones and also those who live in cold zones, albeit with a solar heater for the latter. Assembling them is quite an easy task, especially for those who are technically minded. The rest can ask for technical help from the online stores from where they have purchased it. However, there are a few things that you can do to enhance the beauty of the surroundings as well as add attraction to your above ground swimming pool.

Generally, these pools are accessed by means of a ladder, and these ladders are generally supplied as a part of the kit. However, this does not mean that you are prohibited from trying something innovative. Can you imagine your kids climbing a small mountain to reach the above ground swimming pool? This will provide them with an additional pleasure as they climb up the same to access the pool. Make a rough calculation of the amount of mud required to stack up to the height of the swimming pool and arrange for the same.

You can do the stacking up work yourself or take the help of any contractor. Basically the look of the finished work should be such that it feels as if the ground is rising at an inclination to meet the top of the above ground swimming pool. Done properly, it will also beautify the landscape. If you desire, you can add a small amount of sand to the soil. Add grass seeds too because they serve a dual purpose. Apart from making the inclination look more natural, the grass will also hold the soil tight and prevent it from being washed away during monsoon.

This is just a simple idea, and you can add embellishments to the same to further enhance the mini mountain's beauty. You can cut out steps in the mud and cover them up with a layer of cement so that there is no chance of anyone slipping on the same during the rainy season. Adding bits of rock and shells also helps to increase the beauty of the approach to the above ground swimming pool. Try it out today and see the difference it makes to the overall look of your lawn... your kids will love to climb up and down their favorite mountain that has a pool atop it.
