How to Create the Ultimate Backyard Retreat

Ultimate Backyard Retreat

Creating your own ultimate backyard retreat may seem out of reach, but it doesn’t have to be something you can only dream of. It can easily be a reality if you allow all of us at Tredway Pools Plus to help you pull things together. Following these four steps will have you making decisions like a pro, and your space will be pulled together in no time. We have everything you may need to make the most of your outdoor space this summer. Let’s walk through exactly what you will need to make your ideal retreat.

Start by choosing a pool to build your ultimate backyard retreat around.

The biggest decision you could make for your ultimate backyard retreat is which pool you want to purchase. There are four types of pools to choose from. These are above-ground pools, fiberglass pools, vinyl pools, and concrete pools or gunite pools. They each have pros and cons, and their place in different spaces. Take time to consider what your family needs and for how long you will need those specific things. Budget can also play a role in these decisions. There is something for everyone though.

Above-ground pools are the most affordable and easily accessible. They can be installed quickly and you can even do so on your own as a DIY. There is no need for major landscaping as well with these. This makes for a desirable situation for those on a budget or in a hurry to get things set up. We have plenty of in-stock above-ground pools for you to check out at your local Fort Wayne or Warsaw location. They come in a variety of sizes and styles. There are also a few different exterior materials to choose from. 

If you are looking for an affordable inground pool option, fiberglass might be just the ticket. These come in premade shapes and sizes shipped directly to your home. It makes for a quicker installation once at your home. These pools provide a smooth surface and longer-lasting materials than an above-ground pool, as they are still inground. 

The vinyl liner pool is another excellent option for those who are looking for a longer term pool. At Tredway, we offer these as well. There is a bit more investment and time upfront as well. This provides longevity in your investment though. They can also be customized to your liking, unlike the fiberglass pools that come in predetermined shapes and sizes. Tredway can help you to design a pool size that works for you. Vinyl liner pools are a very popular choice in pools for families.

A gunite or concrete pool will be the most expensive pool option available to you. These come with a much longer installation time as well. They can be customized, but that of course only increases the price tag more. This type of investment can be quite a big deal for customers. For those customers on a budget, this may not be the best option to place in your ultimate backyard retreat.

Next, choose a hot tub to go with your pool.

While most people associate hot tubs with cooler weather, using your hot tub year-round is not only possible but ideal for your ultimate backyard retreat. If you position your hot tub in a shaded area, you can use it to unwind at the end of the day or to get in a massage after a good workout or yard work. This will add options for you to use while entertaining or relaxing in your own space.

Tredway has plenty of options for you in this area as well. We can help you to choose the best hot tub for your space and needs. There are entry-level hot tubs if you are new to hot tubs and looking for an affordable access point as well as higher-end hot tubs for those who are looking for a large and long lasting place to host family and friends. Our expert associates are eager to help you weigh the pros and cons of this decision as well.

Then it’s time to choose a grill.

For those of you who love to grill out when entertaining, we don’t need to preach to you the importance of having a high-end grill in your ultimate backyard retreat. Tredway has wonderful high-end grills to go along with your ideal backyard space. These will allow you to cook the best food for you and your guests. A high-quality grill will allow for more even cooking and ease of grilling.

While the initial investment may not seem worth it, seeing how long the grills last and how easy they make the grilling process will certainly change your mind. If you are looking for guidance on which grill would serve you best, our honest sales representatives are eager to help you make this decision. Be sure to put your new grill in a fantastic Housewarming Outdoor Kitchen. This will up your cooking and entertainment game immensely. It also makes snacks and drinks much more easily accessible when hosting.

Finally, you will want to pick out patio furniture to complete your ultimate backyard retreat. 

Patio furniture can be the most important piece of designing your ultimate backyard retreat. It is where you can add pops of color, or create conversation areas around your yard.  It will also create the ambiance or vibe that you are wanting for the space.

Think about loungers and calming colors to make the space more relaxing. To create an exciting party space, throw in color and tables or big conversational areas. This will ensure you have places to eat or lounge while enjoying the oasis you have created.

Entertaining without patio furniture can really throw a wrench in things. Be sure to take the time to select pieces that are going to stand the test of time and weather. This will ensure your money is spent wisely, and that you can enjoy your space for years to come. 


Designing the ultimate backyard retreat doesn’t have to be an overwhelming task. With these four steps and the help of Tredway Pools Plus, you will have a space you love in no time at all. Our sales experts are ready to help you make the best decisions for your family. With our variety of choices, you are sure to find exactly what you need to create the backyard of your dreams.
