Swimming Pool Landscaping

In this article I'm going to talk about 3 ways you can jazz up your swimming pool landscaping.

They are: Plants, Fencing, and Patios


Plants provide a nice distraction from the cement of the pool. They soften the pool landscape and can be used to hide pool equipment and other less attractive areas of your pool.

If you choose to use plants around your pool landscape, use low care types like evergreens. Holly is a good example.


Fencing is a must, especially if you do have children, but it doesn't need to be an eye sore.

A fence will not only keep unwanted people out, it will keep unwanted eyes out as well. Most people don't realize that a pool fence is a great way to add privacy to your swimming.


Patios add a touch of beauty to a pool area. They also are a great safety device. Patios offer a slip resistant surface when your feet are wet getting out of the pool.

Rough brick or cement that is meant for pool areas is a great surface idea.
