It has been a dream of many people to own property along the ocean. If you have dreamt about being in such a paradise setting, you probably also realized that the price tag can get quite steep. In addition, you may live in an area where there isn’t any beachfront available. What is a person to do?
As it turns out, a company based in Louisiana may be able to provide you with the Beach life you desire. Zydeco Construction specializes in creating beaches that are completely man-made. It includes blue “swimming ponds” with a beautiful, sandy beach entrance. These beaches look like something straight out of a Caribbean island but they are now found in people’s own backyard.
Although the privilege of having such a Beach in your backyard will set you back about $20,000, it may just be well worth it. It isn’t too far from the national average cost of a standard inground swimming pool, which falls in the $22,000 range. Although there are many beautiful pool designs, nothing can make your home feel more like a Caribbean resort than a real beach.
Here is one of their Beach creations:
If we had one of these in our backyard, we might never leave the house!
Eric White is the founder of Zydeco Construction. He always wanted to use his skills in a creative way so he started his construction company. They also build inground trampolines as well as outdoor kitchens. In line with his beach creations, they can also offer solutions for drainage when the home has flooding problems.
“It has always been a dream of mine to do these different things,” White told USA Today. “I am all about figuring out a way to make things happen. I can look at any situation and come up with a way to fix it. I like to stay in the market for things that most companies don’t offer, especially custom requests.”
As it turns out, this offer may not be completely unique. Thanks to a patented pump offered by White, however, these backyard beaches stand out as different. He also works along with the customer closely so they have a customized option for their property.
“It’s something that for years I would think to myself, ‘What if someone could figure out a way to turn a pond into a paradise?’” White said. “I did as much research as I could and applied it to building these ponds.”
I do believe he nailed this one!
These backyard beaches are created for a price but some people have taken a DIY approach to the subject. That would include this 500,000-gallon pool located in Tennessee. It can even be rented out for parties:
This huge swimming pond is also awesome in its own way. You will have to go to Canada to enjoy it.
Do you have a backyard? You might be able to make it epic.
