Since moving into our house 8+ years ago, my husband and I have done a fair amount of upgrading, both outdoors as well as in.
Some changes were necessary, such as replacing the old wood siding (that had areas that were rotten), and some were purely to make life more convenient. Have I mentioned that I love our remodeled kitchen? Love.
But when it comes to an area that remains plain and unchanged, it doesn't take too much searching to see that our yard is pretty plain. Some grass, some rocks, a play structure for the kids in the back, and a few flowers here and there make up what can't be called much more than simple landscaping.
So even though the view out my window might not be anything spectacular at the moment, that doesn't mean that I don't dream of looking outside and seeing something magnificent. After all, now that I have been introduced to Barrington Pools, my mind is filled with images like this:

And, OhYou'veGotToBeKiddingWithThisMuchAwesomeness, this:
In the business of making dreams come true for residential and commercial customers, Barrington Pools designs, builds, and maintains luxury swimming pools and spas in Illinois, Iowa, Indiana, and Wisconsin. From concept to completion, the experts at Barrington Pools are ranked as one of the top swimming pool builders in the country, and the top pool designer in Chicago.
Whether you are looking to design and plan a luxury pool, spa or more, from from the moment you contact Barrington Pools to the day your project is completed, their team members will demonstrate the world-class customer service and support that clients expect and deserve. Having been in business for 37 years (resulting in the installation of over 6,000 pools), they know and understand pools and pool systems better than anyone.
While I've always pictured a backyard pool as something fairly traditional (round or rectangular) with features such as a diving board and some steps, I love the way that Barrington Pools can take that idea and turn it into any number of custom outdoor living possibilities. Why would homeowners opt for the same old, same old when they could have this?
For homeowners that want the best quality and technology in swimming pools, spas, patios, and landscapes, Barrington Pools offers turn-key design and construction services that are supported after installation by maintenance plans. Their award-winning designs are recognized nationally and their customers are consistently satisfied and happy with the results.
With spring and summer just around the corner, now is the perfect time to start thinking about buying a pool and planning for how to pay for it. While many people think that getting a new pool, spa, outdoor kitchen, waterfall, patio, deck or pergola of their dreams is beyond their reach, developing a financial plan is the starting point and Barrington Pools will help you every step of the way.
If you are in the Midwest and have been thinking about adding an amazing upgrade to your landscaping, Barrington Pools can turn your yard into something that you are sure to be thrilled with for years to come!
