5 Reasons to Build a Swimming Pool in the Fall

In Pool Tips by Platinum Pools

Every homeowner dream of having an in-ground pool on their property. Imagine a place for your family and friends to hang out. And, did we tell you that it helps to increase the value of your home? However, the end of Summer doesn’t mean missing the opportunity to build a new swimming pool. In fact, installing your pool during the Fall season has a few advantages over others. If you’re ready to take the plunge, don’t wait!  

Here’s are five reasons why the Fall season is the time to build a in-ground swimming pool:

Dry Terrain

The ground is drier and harder during the Fall season, and the wind dries up the summer moisture. Dry soil is easier (and cleaner) for construction projects like installing a new pool, making it better for heavy machinery and trucks to complete the installation. Best of all, it helps reduce the damage on the lawn than when it is wet and muddy. 


Permit offices have less demand during the fall season, allowing them to process documents faster. Keep in mind that each town or area in Harris County, Victoria, or Beaumont may have different requests for submitting documentation. If a future pool owner lives in a gated community, they may also need a permit from their Homeowner’s Association (HOA).

Fewer Weather Delays

Once the Summer season simmers down, the rain diminishes. Although Southeast Texas attracts rain and other weather conditions, there are fewer weather conditions in the fall. So, it is time to start building a new pool.   

Start Now, Have it by Summer 

Installing a pool in autumn allows many tasks like having a completed and functioning pool by summer, make final payments, learn how to take care of the oasis, and more. You will be ready to enjoy your brand new pool when Summer arrives. Also, get acquainted with the pool’s system and the surroundings that make your oasis beautiful. Also, it gives you time to select the perfect features for your swimming pool. There is a wide selection of pool accessories like grottos, waterfalls, and spillways.


Most people like to landscape around their pool to make it look nice and create an enjoyable atmosphere. It is an excellent time to landscape as many trees and bulbs do best when planted in Fall. Spend the time during the pool installation in designing and growing plants in your backyard oasis. Also, you may want to check those beautiful and functional plants like keeping the bugs and critters away and that complement the pool’s style.

When you build a swimming pool in the Fall season, it gives time to plan family celebrations like Spring Break and long holiday weekends. So take the plunge and start building memories today! Keep in mind that a pool has the versatility to fit in any space with a suitable design fitting for your home.
