If you only have a certain amount of space, it may be challenging to get a fiberglass pool depending on the manufacturer. Fiberglass pools are manufactured using molds, so they are limited to specific sizes.

When it comes to installing a pool in a small backyard, you have to work with the space that is available to you. You may consider a curved pool like a kidney shape, but you have to keep in mind with shapes like these, you will lose out on water space but will have more space for a patio.
Keep in mind that you will need 7ft. of decking space to have a lounge chair on the patio and if you plan to place tables and additional chairs on the patio, more space will be required. Because of the added decking space, freeform pools are very common in small backyards.
A small pool design can be enhanced with swimming pool accessories or features such as pool heater, automatic covers, and pool lights. You can also add in a tanning ledge or a Baja shelf, even if your pool is smaller in size.
