As we are reaching the end of 30 days of sheltering in place, Arizonans are reminded of a prime benefit to living in the Valley of the Sun. We have fantastic weather, which has allowed us to be outdoors when much of the country is stuck indoors due to rotten weather. But it has also brought clarity to the areas that are lacking in many outdoor living spaces. What was once fine for a quick dinner outdoors or a few hours in the pool, is not really meeting the needs of a family who is on a long-term, somewhat forced staycation. Fortunately, there is an entire team of folks at the UNIQUE Companies who are prepared to help you turn your so-so outdoor spaces into a resort-quality experience. Your new outdoor living space will ease boredom, provide a space for physical fitness and activity, and provide the illusion of freedom that many of us are longing to find. To get the ball rolling, call 480-969-1911 to schedule a free consultation, which can be done remotely if that works best for you.

Where To Begin

When you begin to think about creating the perfect outdoor space at your Phoenix home or upgrading what you already have, it can be easy to get overwhelmed. Especially with all of the current issues and added stress. You can find yourself trying to plan for every possibility and circumstance, which after the last few weeks, is more challenging than you ever imagined. Instead of stressing over what you might want or need in the future, think of creating a wish list, much like you did as a child when your birthday rolled around. Imagine all of the fun and functional features that will add to your enjoyment of your yard for many years to come. Please consider some of our most popular features, which we have detailed below. 

It’s Going to Get Very Hot, Very Soon!

One of the biggest challenges of Phoenix in the summer is the intense heat. But spending those hot summer days in your UNIQUE custom swimming pool will be much more comfortable and enjoyable. And the fun features are almost unlimited. Some of our most popular features to consider include:

And while all of this might sound great, you could be starting to worry about the care and maintenance of this new fantastic feature in your backyard. But never fear. The team at UNIQUE has all of that covered for you as well. We can integrate many automatic systems that will provide everything you need, including:

  • Automatic filtration and cleaning
  • Salt chlorination/ozone/pH management
  • Chemical monitoring and dispensing
  • Integration with your home automation system to keep you informed about the condition of your pool water and any needed maintenance

Time To Find Some Shade

After hours of fun in the pool, you are sure to be ready for a quiet place to relax and enjoy some shade. And there is no better place to do that than in your outdoor living room. Think of this as an open-air family room with great views and plenty of fresh air. And if you are a fan of dining al fresco, you can even add a kitchen and dining area to your ramada. And each of these spaces can be as simple or as luxurious as you desire. We have created chef-quality outdoor kitchens, complete outdoor living spaces with big-screen TVs and audio systems, and outdoor dining for you and 20 of your closest friends. Just tell us what you envision as the perfect backdrop to host your friends and family or just to enjoy a day of private relaxation.

Safe Water Play Space For the Children

If your children are still young, and the thought of a swimming pool instantly fills you with stress, we have the solution. A splash pad is the perfect child-friendly and child-safe way for kids of all ages to enjoy cool summertime fun. These features have NO STANDING WATER and can include jets, fountains, and an endless number of water toys. And all of the care and maintenance of this fun play space can be set up to function using automation, much like a swimming pool. The water is filtered, chemically sanitized and maintained in a holding tank that is safely buried underground. And the non-slip surface can be custom shaped to make the most of the space in your yard. And while you might think of this as a play space for younger children, we promise that children of every age love spending hours enjoying the fun on a UNIQUE splash pad.
