One of the last, and arguably more important, aspects of pool design is the landscaping. It can make a huge difference in the look and feel of the poolscape overall. Because there are many different options available, it’s important to know why landscaping is important and the role it plays in your pool design.
Your swimming pool is a private place that should reflect your personal style. Your family should feel good and happy near the pool area. The best way to do this is to plant trees and beautiful shrubs around the pool to add grace to the visuals.
Choose different heights, colors, and shapes of the trees to enhance the natural beauty of your pool. You can also experiment with the design, material, and color of the floor area and walls in such a way that they complement the plants, the pool design, and the house exterior, as well.
Tips & Tricks
Landscaping accentuates the aesthetics and adds to the functionality that makes it the right choice to consider while building a pool for your happy family. Here are a few tips and tricks to consider:
- Buy all the materials that adhere to high-quality standards and are durable.
- Choose the plants based on the climatic conditions of the area so that they bloom and flourish properly.
- Choose plants that shed less to reduce debris cleaning.
- The planting bed should be away from the pool to minimize debris falling into the pool.
- Choose moisture-resistant materials like stones and pebbles to build the pool surroundings and walls, so that they require less maintenance.
- Plant the trees in strategic locations such that they guard the inside view of the pool to any outsider.
- Panting taller trees could also help dampen the sound and prevent the sound from being audible to any outsider.
Additional Things to Consider
While landscaping in and of itself won’t necessarily affect the daily function and operation of your pool, it can affect its cleanliness. To ensure safety and reduce maintenance due to debris, it is important to invest in a good pool cover.
Your pool area should have enough landscape lighting incorporated into the design so that you can have a beautiful and welcoming ambiance at dusk and beyond surrounding your poolscape. Accent lighting specifically accentuates any landscaping you want to share the spotlight with, whether it’s your pool, a unique tree or a well-designed area. Be proud to show off the gorgeous space.
