With Groundhog Day just around the corner, we’re starting to think about spring and summer. If you’re thinking about establishing an outdoor oasis with a custom inground pool as the focal point, now is the time to start planning.
That’s because a custom pool design and installation project take time. There’s the planning and inspiration time; time to research, interview, and hire a design team; time to select and order materials; time for the permitting process; time for the HOA to approve your plans; and the actual time to install your pool.
All of that can take months. There are benefits to planning ahead as well.
Benefit #1: You Beat the Rush
Most people wait until spring or even summer to start planning their pool installation and are dismayed at the wait time involved. If you hire a pool builder or outdoor living contractor now, you beat the rush. That means you get a quote sooner, get permits sooner, and get the finished project sooner. You’ll be lounging poolside before any of your neighbors.
Benefit #2: The Materials You Want Are in Stock
By starting the pool design and installation process early, you also set yourself up for success as far as getting the materials you want. The further into the spring we get, the materials may start becoming scarce. The longer you wait, the greater the chance that you won’t get your first choice of everything.

Benefit #3: Delays Aren’t as Big a Deal
The last main benefit of planning early is that when your installation starts earlier, delays in HOA approval or delays because of weather or materials availability aren’t such a big deal. You’re not staring at Memorial Day being just weeks away.
