The goal is to make the most of your summer ! So, it’s best to limit time spent on maintenance and optimizing time spent relaxing in your yard.

What’s the best way to integrate landscaping around the pool?

1. Use planters suspended from your gazebo or pool house, where you store your equipment and accessories.

2. When in doubt, go for potted plants ! The variety of designs, textures and colors will undoubtedly add a sophisticated touch to your backyard.

3. Maintain a distance of at least 1 metre before integrating a flowerbed or shrubs. Otherwise, your space to work efficiently and safely will be limited.

4. Define your backyard by using outdoor tropical plants for a vacation feel, perennial flowering plants if you like to find them every year, or seasonal flowers and plants to add variety over the years.

Whether you are following the nature-inspired trends of 2023, or enjoy listening to the sound of running water, including a waterfall feature will compliment the landscape design around an inground pool. These features require little maintenance but add character to your backyard landscaping.

Ask your landscaper to plan the integration of a waterfall using decorative concrete¬†¬†retaining walls. You’ll require their expertise for this to ensure proper installation.

3. Inground pool fencing, a decorative and functional element to consider in your design

With the range of fencing options now available, you’ll have every opportunity to add a stylish touch to your project. If you’re aiming for low-maintenance, try an aluminium or steel fence. A traditional wooden fence may require more maintenance, but offers warmth and privacy.
