Tips to Landscape the Pool Oasis of Your Dreams
Your pool is ready to be enjoyed, but the yard surrounding your new space leaves little to be desired. If you are like most pool owners, you would prefer to spend your time enjoying your new space rather than working in the yard. It’s time to give careful consideration to how you are going landscape your new entertainment area.
Plants – Plants can add color and give your pool area a lush and relaxing feeling. There are several different ways you can use plants to create a restful backyard oasis.
- Potted Plants – These are perfect for around your pool area because you can add variety and change things around from year-to-year. And, best of all, you can add an extra punch of color without requiring too much additional yard work.
- Planting areas – A dedicated space for shrubs, flowers, and other greenery is the perfect way to keep plantings contained in specific areas of your yard.
- Grass – Do you want a little extra space for playing yard games or just running around? Grassy zones add a lush carpet of green in your pool area and help to break up the pool decking and other plantings.
- Selecting your plants – Careful consideration needs to be given when selecting planting for around your pools. While trees add shade to the space, they can also add leaves to your pools. Additionally, take some time to learn what type of bugs also enjoy the plantings you are choosing. If you don’t want to share your space with unwanted guests, steer clear of the greenery and flowers that they enjoy.
Privacy is a key consideration when creating your landscaping plan. Options to ensure your backyard is truly a calming retreat include tall fencing, shrubbery, and trees.
Your pool area will most certainly be enjoyed in both the day and night hours. Lighting adds both ambiance and safety to your outdoor space. Consider what type of lighting you will include with your landscaping plans. Solar options do not require additional wiring, but might not be as powerful. Torches are also a great choice and might also help cut down on nighttime pests such as mosquitos.
