You don’t have to have a big garden to fit in a pool — and if you do have a big garden, the pool doesn’t have to take up the entire space. We’ve got plenty of examples of less-than-enormous gardens where homeowners have squeezed in a pool — and lots of other things, too.

A small pool doesn’t have to be any less refreshing. This cast concrete plunge pool is by Australian Plunge Pools.

This pool, spotted on Coastal Living, buts right up to the side of the house, and is actually located in a side yard.

In this design by Bestor Architecture, a lap pool runs across the back of a small backyard, leaving room for a patio for entertaining.

This backyard pool from My Paradissi is just big enough to jump in and splash around a little. The outdoor shower is a nice touch.

Lap pools are also a great solution for long, narrow city backyards. This is the pool at Cynthia Rowley’s Manhattan townhouse, from Elle Decor via Mimi + Meg.

This design by Secret Gardens makes the very most of a small backyard, with a narrow pool, a deck for entertaining, and a little room to roam.

Here’s another cast concrete pool, from Desire to Inspire. Who knew an above ground pool could look so good?

This backyard pool from Houzz might be the smallest of all — but it still looks like a wonderful spot to sit with a drink in your hand. And really, what more could you ask for?

 

While an ideal size for swimming laps is 1.80 m in width by 2.5 in length, you can still fit a pool that accommodates exercise in as little as 9-10m. And, of course, if splashing and drinking is your main objective, any size will do!
