If you want a backyard swimming pool but are limited by either budget or space, you may think you can't have what you really want. The truth is that you can still have a fun and relaxing pool by scaling down your expectations and considering instead a cocktail pool.
As its name suggests, a "cocktail" pool is a small inground pool that is designed to fit all your pool needs in a small space more suitable for enjoying cocktails -- up to one-tenth the size of a traditional pool. It mixes the ingredients you want in your pool -- entertainment, relaxation, design and functionality -- into a blend that's manageable in a small area (often around 12 feet by 14 feet) and on a small budget.
Here are some of the advantages of choosing a small "cocktail" pool.
A cocktail pool (or spool, if you prefer) is a great compromise for those who may not have families to support a large pool any more, or those who just want to focus on enjoying some adult time in their pool.

Most of us take great pride in our homes and do everything we can to ensure its beauty and comfort. While attending to our home's interior, we sometimes tend to neglect the lawn, especially during winter. Since moving into my "dream home" I feel compelled to maintain the lawn and garden as impeccably as I do the interior. That's why I've hired a lawn care team to see that my landscape is in tip-top shape all year round. I've learned the importance of fertilization during the late fall and early winter. Keeping the lawn trimmed during those cold winter months will help, too. The experts even help prepare my lawn for the upcoming spring. During this time, family celebrations and parties are plentiful, and I plan to have the best looking lawn on the block. I can't wait for spring to come!
