When you’re stuck at home during this summer, it may not be the worst of ideas to try and build your own above ground pool. The ideas are endless and you can end up with whatever design you put your mind to.

These pools are very easy to do and don’t require a lot of digging if any at all.

All you need is the will to do it, some tools and a budget to begin with, and your back or front yard. If you take this seriously, you may even be able to get done with it in a week or so, especially if you get all the professional help you’re going to need.

Enough talk and let’s check out some of the best design ideas you can go for when building your very own above ground pool!

INGROUND HACK

This pool isn’t the deepest one you can get but it is definitely fun to sit in or get your daily dive in the water.

As you can see, you need some wood and you’re done. Make sure you get a professional to put their work and experience into everything so you don’t end up with leaks.

You can dig and make it deeper if you like!

DECKING DETAILS

This requires some building until you get the height off the ground that you want.

The experience is superior and enjoying this pool will be very fun.

OWN YOUR SPACE

This one requires quite the amount of building as you can see. Building it will also take some time, but the end result is to die for.

HILLSIDE ADVANTAGES

Similar to the previous one, this one can also have a smaller pool that can be used as a jacuzzi, depending on whether you want to heat the water or not.

OUTDOOR LIVING

Although the backyard appears to be massive, this can be done even if you have a small or medium back or front yard.

All it takes is building this pool a few feet off the ground using wood as well as building a platform for you to stand on.

NATURE INSPIRED POOL

This is one of the higher ends above ground pools. It uses marble and looks very high quality. You can either get just the height you have off the ground or dig in a few feet under.

GET YOUR SWIM ON

This one looks like it was taken out of a spa or a 5-star hotel.

But you can do this on your own in your front or back yard (if you have a huge one).

If you’re going to build an above ground pool this big, you might as well dig some more and make it a full-on pool.

PRIVACY WALLS

This isn’t the best idea to go for but it isn’t the worst either. Having a long above ground pool can be great especially if you have company.

BACKYARD DECKING

This one may seem like it is in-ground but it isn’t.

The platform is built very high up from the ground so the pool would appear like it was built in-ground.

VILLA-ESQUE

This example takes so much advantage of the backyard that it becomes a “middle”-yard.

The pool is built above ground in the middle of the yard, and the rest of the space is used for smaller cabins and extra rooms.

OCEAN VIEW

This one looks very smooth for the way it uses its space.

The pool is built both in and on-ground, and it uses a raised platform so that it appears as if it is in the ground.

MODERN MARBLE

This one is built quite high off the ground as you can see. But a platform is built around it to make using it and sitting by it very easy and convenient.
