Whether you have a pool at home, or you work in a building with a pool area, you will want to make sure that the pool area is ready when the summer starts.
This is because people tend to spend a lot more time around pools in the summer, especially people who live in countries with hotter climates. If the pool area looks run down, then they will not want to use the pool.
Therefore, when the weather starts to change, you should start to plan how you are going to get the pool area refurbished. This is a task that might take some time, so you will want to start the process early in the year. Having building materials and equipment around the pool area when used is a mistake because it does not portray a relaxing environment.
The first thing that you should do is to arrange for the pool to be professionally cleaned. If you have had storms in your area over the winter, then there will be a lot of debris on the pool. Even if you have had a cover over the pool, some debris will have gotten in.
If the bottom of the pool is untidy and dirty, then you might have to arrange to have the pool drained, cleaned and then refilled. If there is any damage to the pool foundations, then you should do the repairs before the pool is clean.
This is to prevent the need to have the pool cleaned twice. Once pool gets repaired and cleaned, you can have it refilled with water and you can make a schedule with the company to have the pool cleaned once a week, to keep on top of things during the heavy usage of the summer.
During the winter, the landscape will have taken a beating and you might not have kept up with the upkeep of the garden. This is not your fault and no one is expecting you to keep up with the landscaping of the area in harsh conditions.
Therefore, you should get a landscape artist in to repair any damage and plant new plants. If you have a pool at home, or you own a holiday villa, then you can do the gardening yourself. But, if you are in commercial properties, you should pay to have the work done yourself.
If you have outdoor furniture that has been in storage during the off-season, you might be tempted to just clean and use the same furniture again. However, the furniture might be damaged and it might actually look like it is old. If this is the case, you should invest in some new outdoor furniture.
If you are in a commercial property, then this is the perfect time to change the look of the outdoor area and make it look more in line with the overall design of the property. If you want to save money then you can use the old furniture, but regular customers will know that the furniture is old.
Therefore, it's recommended that you give the furniture an upgrade, especially if you have upgraded and changed everything else in the outdoor area. If the area has seen a complete renovation, then you definitely have to buy new furniture. After spending a lot of money on renovations, it will be a shame to cut the look of the area by using old furniture. Just think of it as an investment for the season.
