Pool Landscaping

So you want to put a pool in your backyard. Here are a few pool landscaping tips that will help you along the way.

I will how ever start off by saying that installing an inground pool is a job best left for the professionals. This is something a beginner can get very wrong.

The first decision you have to make is where you want your pool situated. This might already be dictated to you by the layout of your landscape. You can either have the pool close to the house or further back in the yard.

It all depends on how often you want to use the pool. In hot climates where winter does not last long or not at all, the pool becomes an integral part of daily life so it makes sense to have it close to the home.

One thing a lot of people don't think of is changing rooms. Pools are very often not built with changing rooms, which is a shame as it gives a very classy look to your landscaping.

The shape of the pool is up to the individual and the size of the landscape they are working with. Serious swimmers how ever realize that a rectangular shaped pool is best for swimming.

You will also need to think about what finishes you want on the bottom and the side of the pool. Do you want to use tiles, if so what color?

If you are creating the pool as the center of your landscaping, then by all means be bold with your choices. If how ever your pool is secondary to the overall feel of your landscape, try and blend it in with the rest of the yard.

I know kit pool sellers will tell you a pool is a breeze to install, but PLEASE, seek professional help when you are building any inground pool.
