A lap pool is ideal for small yards and adds a reflective landscape feature, but keep in mind that adding a pool is likely to increase your homeowner's insurance.


  • Pool chemicals average between $50 and $100 per month.

  • An in-ground pool takes about three to 12 weeks to install.

  • Vinyl liners last about five to seven years. Concrete needs repainted every five years.

  • Three goals to landscaping a pool: Privacy, Beautification, Shade.
