Nothing beats the heat like a backyard swimming pool, and homeowners considering adding one need to decide between an above-ground or in-ground version of their own, as Jethro Bodine so memorably put it, “cement pond.”
There are major differences between the two options for that potential new centerpiece of family and friend fun. Cost is a good place to begin, and either version can be pricey, depending on your wallet and willingness to spend on something that may not be attractive to potential buyers if you decide to sell.
