Providing the Ultimate Backdrop for Your Luxury Pool

As a Hurst pool builder we know the value a luxury pool can add. A pool adds character and dimension to your backyard. But a pool can not truly shine if it doesn’t have the proper backdrop. Here are some tips for providing the ultimate backdrop for your luxury pool.

Keep your backyard clear of debri
Fall is just around the corner and with it comes lots of falling leaves. Keeping your yard and pool free of debri not only makes your backyard look more luxurious it also prolongs the life of your pool. In addition pruning your flowerbeds and keeping grass short elevates your backyard and makes it look clean and inviting.

Mix fire and water
Contrasting elements adds interest to your poolscape. So what better feature to accompany your luxury pool than an equally luxurious fire pit?

Accent with plants
To create the ultimate luxury retreat you need to incorporate plants. By adding color and texture through plants it will give your pool the extra wow factor to impress your family and friends. Succulents are a popular choice as well as they are evergreen. Plants are not just visually appealing however, tall ornamental grasses and even vines add privacy to your backyard retreat.

Landscape Lighting Design Tips

As a Southlake pool builder we care just as much about the atmosphere of your poolscape after the sun sets as we do during the daylight hours. Creating a magical evening with landscape lighting design allows you to enjoy your pool longer. Here are some design tips for creating a romantic evening retreat in your own backyard.

Mark Parameters
One of the most important reasons for lighting your backyard is safety. Not only does a lit path look beautiful at night, it also allows you to navigate without fear of stumbling. There are a number of ways to mark your pathways including lanterns, string lights, and so on.

Eye-Catching Light
Using different colored lights across your backyard can create a visually interesting landscape. It can also create zones by lighting your pool a different color than you plants or your patio. You can also change the colors depending the mood you’re going for.

Uplighting & Moon Lighting
Uplighting of trees can make for a bolder, more dramatic effect. Lights are placed at the base of the tree and draws attention to the canopy.

If you’re looking for a softer light for a more romantic vibe try down lighting your trees, also known as moonlighting. This is typically done with a cooler light (or blue light) to give the illusion of moonlight streaming through the leaves.

Wall or Water Feature
If you have a feature wall or a low wall that may be hard to see at night lighting your walls can be a beautiful way to showcase your hardscape.

Water features lit from within for a calming effect or up-lit to add drama to your backyard.
