Why you need pool landscaping


Adding a pool to your garden can be just the beginning of creating a recreational space for you to enjoy.


By investing in the landscape around your pool you maximise the potential to get away from the everyday stresses of life. You get to feel like you are on holiday every time you step into your backyard.


What is pool landscaping?

Landscaping - the process of making a garden or other piece of land more attractive by altering the existing design, adding ornamental features, and planting trees and shrubs.


There are two main types of landscaping:

  1. Hardscape - the man-made features used in landscape architecture, e.g. paths or walls, as contrasted with vegetation.

  2. Softscape - vegetation (such as shrubs and flowers) that is incorporated into a landscape.

Why you need pool landscaping?

The options and ideas are only limited by your available space and imagination. Here are a few ways that you will benefit from great pool landscaping.

  1. Ambience - landscaping creates a beautiful space for you to enjoy all year round even when you may not be swimming. Would you like a tropical oasis, a traditional structured garden or a simple deck to relax and read a good book?

  2. Shade - will you be looking for a little shade to get out of the hot summer sun? Shade producing trees or shade structures can be the perfect way to escape the sun on a hot day.

  3. Privacy - Both structures and plants can add to your pool privacy. Most people don't want their neighbours looking straight through to their new pool. Your pool is for your invited friends and family.

Is the investment worth it?

The simple answer is yes! Apart from enhancing your lifestyle you are also increasing the value of your property for future sale.
