From outdoor ovens to life-size chess boards, every season brings new trends in landscape design. One unique design trend in the last couple of years has certainly captured our attention – the plunge pool or dip pool.
A plunge pool is a compact swimming pool, typically designed for wading, relaxing, or cooling off. This is not only a cost-effective alternative to a standard-sized swimming pool but also a wonderful option for the homeowner with a small yard.
This growing trend provides a therapeutic advantage. Plunge pools can be built directly next to hot tubs for the purpose of “cold-plunge” therapy – an ancient practice still commonly utilized among athletes today. Cold-plunge therapy, also known as hot-cold therapy, involves moving back and forth from hot to cold water, a practice that encourages blood flow and circulation, while helping to heal overworked muscles.
To recap, here are some advantages of the plunge pool:
Disadvantages to consider:
The plunge pool trend is growing. Whether you are on a budget, have a small yard, or are interested in the therapeutic advantages, this new trend could be the option for you. Will you take the plunge?
If you are ready to try something different, these alternatives to sod require less water, less fertilizer, and less effort to maintain.
