Poolside Landscaping Design Tips

poolAre you looking to make your backyard pool a true oasis for your friends and family? You’ll need a bit more than just the water. Poolside landscaping design is one of the best ways to customize your pool and make it really stand out. Evergreen Gene’s has just a few tips for you to think about when you begin your poolside landscaping project.

A professional landscaper can recommend the right style, size, and shape of pool for your backyard. If you’re working with a smaller space, a large pool can seem overwhelming. If you’re backyard has a unique layout, professional landscapers can tailor the shape of your pool to fit it correctly. Once your pool is in place, it will be easier to determine what kinds of landscaping accents will suit it best.

Plants can make a great finishing touch to a pool’s surroundings. However, it can be tricky to pick the best ones; trees, while they can provide shade, can shed leaves into your pool and can grow roots that eventually undermine your pool’s structural integrity. Flowers bring a touch of color, but also quite a few bugs. A professional landscaper might urge you to consider leafy green plants or small shrubs in square, stone pots to place at intervals near the perimeter of your pool. They keep the space from looking too bare, while at the same time they stay contained within their pots.

Hardscaping is extremely popular with pool owners. From a stone wall surrounding the pool to statues and fountains, the right elements of hardscaping can elevate your pool to the next level and make it a truly special space.
