In this article we will examine the different backyard features that are typically added for projects that fall within the budget range of $75K & under. There are many important factors that will determine a pool’s cost to give you all the information you need to plan your perfect pool!
The pools in the video above show a variety of design styles that are available in this budget range. They do vary in price mostly due to their size and the design features added.
Your pool size, lot conditions, jurisdiction, material choices, decking materials, fire features, water features, and other landscape features will all be considered when creating a budget for your backyard oasis.
Building Your Inground Pool
If your backyard budget falls in the $75K & under price range, you will be able to include an inground pool or spa, plus some additional design features into your backyard living environment. A pool makes a lot of sense in Arizona as there are several warm months throughout the year to enjoy your private swimming pool.
In Arizona building a standard inground pool in your backyard will cost somewhere between $30,000 – $50,000. At California Pools & Landscape, our standard pool costs $50,000 – $55,000.
Most commonly, pools in this price range also can include other outdoor elements like a Baja shelf, water features or landscaping. Whether it’s relaxation, entertainment or recreation, building an inground pool or spa in your backyard can check all the boxes.
An Inground Pool With Water Features
When building an inground pool with a budget that goes up to $75K, our design team likes to add in luxurious touches like water features. Adding water features can drastically change your outdoor environment, creating a visible and audible stimulus to add to your relaxation.
Depending on your preference, water features can add the sense of a rock waterfall, a steady flow and splash from a wide scupper or a fountain shooting up from underwater.
Many of our water features are built into raised walls, pillars or rock formations. These design touches can help add character to your pool and set your design apart from the rest! There are several different material choices you can make that can make your backyard feel like an extension of your living space.
Pool shapes in this range run the gamut, from modern and crisp to free form and organic. We also take advantage of different decking materials to highlight different living areas and draw attention to certain parts of the backyard.
Building An Inground Pool With A Baja Shelf
When dreaming of your pool and backyard oasis, adding features like a baja shelf, pool benches or raised pool walls can be accomplished in this budget range.
Baja Shelves are one of our most popular add ons to pools because they offer a great opportunity to relax in the water and still soak up the Arizona sunshine. They are also a great feature to add for families with small children, as they can splash and play in the shallow water.
