Another summer has come and gone, bringing with it memories in the pool that will last long after we close it up for the season. This year was one to remember, with plenty of time spent relaxing and enjoying family and friends alongside the calming waters. However, all good things must come to an end, which is why it’s now time to turn our attention to properly preparing the pool for the months of rest ahead.
Last year, we discovered the Leslie’s Premium Closing Kit and were amazed by how smoothly everything went come springtime. With no algae or debris in sight, it felt like we hadn’t missed a beat being poolside. Their specialized formula did the hard work of treating and preparing the water so it was pristine upon our when we are ready to open in the spring. Thanks to that experience, we had no doubts about which kit to trust again this season.
While it’s always bittersweet to close the pool for winter, taking the time now to care for it with Leslie’s ensures we’ll have many more fun-filled seasons to come. Their products have proven to deliver outstanding results season after season. As we say farewell to the pool for the winter, we’re looking back on all the exciting upgrades and memories we made this season
This summer was full of improvements and new additions that really took our backyard oasis to the next level. We surrounded the perimeter of the pool with towering green giant arborvitae, giving us a sense of privacy and seclusion like never before. It’s been amazing watching them start to fill out, and I can’t wait until next season when they’re in full bloom and really make the space feel like our own private garden retreat.
Another upgrade we made was installing outdoor speakers around the entire pool deck. What a game changer it’s been cranking up the tunes while soaking up the sun! The kids especially loved it and we created so many fun memories dancing and singing along to all their favorite songs. It really enhanced our time out back and made it that much more enjoyable.

One thing we were initially worried about when it came to enjoying our pool was keeping it clean and clear.

We also finally finishing up the last touches to the pool house bathroom remodel that had been on our to-do list for quite some time. It’s so nice to have that space fully functional for quick changes or refreshing up after a swim. Everything came together nicely and added convenience on those hot summer days. Overall this season was one for the books with all the improvements and additions really taking our backyard oasis up a notch. While it’s always bittersweet to close up the pool signaling summer’s end, I’m already looking forward to next year and all the new memories we’ll make.
