Landscaping around your pool

Whether you have a pool area that you are looking to renovate or you are thinking about getting a new pool, the landscape around it is important.

You may have new landscape for the entire area or you may have a mix of both new and old. Either way there are many things to consider and your landscape professional is there to help you every step of the way.

The area will generally have both hardscape (decks, paving etc) and softscape (plants). The hardscape make everything practical for use and the soft scape brings everything to life. Ensuring the space is balanced is an essential aspect.


  • Decks

  • Paving

  • Fencing

  • Pots

  • Furniture

  • Retaining walls

  • Feature walls


  • Plants and flowers

  • Lawn areas

  • Trees and shrubs


A well designed landscape will incorporate both the softscape and the hardscape.

There will be an ideal balance of the two so that one does not outweigh the other. Too much hardscape can look very harsh and more commercial. Whereas too much softscape can take over and resemble a jungle.

If the pool is the main feature you want both the soft and hardscape to provide a complementary balance in your outdoor space.


Ultimately having a pool and a well designed landscape is all about enhancing your lifestyle and increasing the value of your property. It gives you a place to relax, gather with family and friends and provide you with a holiday at home.
