Landscape designHow Pool Landscaping Sets Your Pool Apart

Pool landscaping makes your pool area feel more impressive as well as making it a more comfortable space to be in.

Simply building a pool in your backyard will leave your yard feeling bare and unfinished. The proper pool landscaping adds the essential finishing touches to your pool and can even transform your backyard into a gorgeous oasis! In addition to giving your pool some flair and sophistication, there are several other benefits to having the area around your pool landscaped.


No one wants to feel like they’re literally swimming in a fishbowl. This is where landscaping comes in handy. One of the most tangible benefits of pool landscaping is that it can create a private area where you feel comfortable swimming alone or hosting friends. A shrub border not only shields you from view, it can also block noise, creating a peaceful area for enjoying your solitude. Consider an evergreen, such as the Leyland Cypress, for an elegant, understated border that will set off the rest of your landscaping.

Dynamic Design

If you have a pool and patio, odds are you have a lot of flat, monotonous space. You can create a sense of dynamism by breaking up the space with eye-catching vegetation. Incorporating permanent plant features into your design makes your space look more relaxing and natural. By breaking a long expanse with planters and other features, you can even make your space look bigger and more interesting. Flowers, grasses, and shrubs also make great accents and look even better with impressive pool lighting.

Follow a Theme

Perhaps you’ve always wanted to live on a tropical island. With an astute selection of plants, you can transform your pool into a tropical island getaway! Of course, not all tropical plants will survive in our northern climate, which is where our knowledgeable landscapers step in. To create a tropical oasis in your backyard, we may use hardy tropicals–like hostas, hibiscus,and certain types of ferns–to create a lush tropical jungle. Be sure to talk to your designer about your options; we’ll do our best to create your perfect backyard pool getaway.
