Landscaping Inspiration Around Your Pool

Looking for landscaping inspiration around pool because you want to revitalize your backyard? Well-planned pool landscaping can elevate your pool experience. A pool that’s surrounded by the perfect balance of hard and soft scape that suits your personality can make your backyard feel more welcoming, relaxing and fun to be in. Here are 4 ways you can customize your pool landscape and make it a retreat.

Tropical Paradise
If you want a tropical oasis opt for Banana trees, Elephant’s Ear, and Chinese Windmill Palm. For a pop of color add different color Hibiscus plants and have a couple of palm trees to frame the corners of the pool.

Desert Oasis
For a striking minimalist backyard use succulents which are sculptural in form, and hardy. Plants like agave, yucca, and prickly pears are great options. Gravel conveys a softer mood than most other types of paving.Mix gravel with larger rocks to add interest in large area and frame walkways.

Relaxing Nature Perserve
A rocky landscape with aquatic vegetation, flowering plants and the great outdoors generate a welcome weekend retreat right in your own backyard. A waterfall feature mixed with various sizes of river rock will drown out road noise and typical water plants such as cattails, bulrushes, sedges, duckweed and water lilies will filter the pool naturally.

Modern Luxury
For a modern private oasis have tall skinny evergreens like the Skyrocket Juniper line the fence to give you more privacy and have blocks of astroturf between large square flat tiles for a modern and luxurious backyard retreat that’s low maintenance.
