Now that the warmer weather is here, one of the things that you may be bringing out is the wading pool if you have small kids or you just want an easy fast way to keep yourself cool. The problem is that your wading pool can damage your grass. Below are 2 tips that you can use to help keep your grass looking great even with a wading pool.
Protect Your Lawn by Moving Your Inflatable Pool Each Day
One of the best things that you can do is move the spot where the pool is regularly. This can become quite a hassle when you have a medium-sized pool, and if you have a bigger pool, it’s not going to be possible. However, if you have a smaller pool, this is something to do.
You are going to clean and replace its water regularly, anyway. So emptying and hanging up the pool so it dries is a good idea.
Protect Your Lawn by Not Putting the Inflatable Pool on Your Grass
If you have a larger inflatable pool, you want to avoid putting it on the lawn. Usually, these kinds of pools are quite heavy if you don’t empty them beforehand. When you are keeping your water chlorinated, it’s not necessary to empty it, to begin with.
To stop the inflatable pool from killing the lawn, look for someplace like a deck, patio, or porch where the pool can be placed instead. You also can consider removing the grass from your spot and putting the pool on sand instead.
You also can put down a tarp or something else to put down under your pool so that it’s between your pool and the grass. Some of the things that you should remember when you are putting down something on the lawn is that it should be:
- Durable & damage resistant
- Simple to use
These are some of the things that you should remember when you want to protect your lawn during the summer when the weather is hot, and your kids are splashing in the inflatable pool. With a bit of planning, your kids can stay cool, and your grass can stay as beautiful and lush as you would like it to be.
