Make a Splash
The concept of a residential pool may seem simple enough; you either buy a home with one all ready for you to jump in, or you hire a hardscape design team to install one for you. But that cool expanse of aqua is a big investment and should truly make a big splash, so consider a custom pool landscape design to make your pool anything but common. With the use of eye-catching backyard hardscapes elements like pavers, water features, and fire pits, you’ll have one of the most relaxing backyards in the neighborhood, and there won’t be any question about whether the grass is greener anywhere else.
Pool Your Resources
Great pool landscape design should naturally include natural elements like gorgeous plants, but you’ll also want to keep in mind patio decorating ideas that play up any pool landscaping you might have. Use any pops of color you can, not only in patio accessories and furniture, but also with plants and flowers that you choose. Those pops of color will really make a statement, and you’ll quickly realize that adding extras like swimming pool landscaping and a custom deck or patio area will do unspeakable wonders in transforming even the most basic pool into something extraordinary.
Dive On In
Naturally, any materials for hardscaping and decorating you choose need to resist both weather and water. You’ll also need to be mindful of the fact that water will collect around the pool, which means that using slip-resistant tiles or pavers should rank high on your list if you’re looking for an alternative to wood decking. You’re trying to create a great space that’s aesthetically appealing and one of a kind, so get creative and have fun, with tropically inspired plants and lush landscaping that make your pool seem like an oasis. Ideally, the pool should be a place to relax and entertain, to cool off and enjoy the outdoors. Realistically speaking, however, many homeowners forget to think about the bigger picture. All too often, they overlook the importance of what they see from the water’s edge; and as you consider the overall investment of a pool, it’s crucial to realize that unless the space surrounding that pool is something pleasing to the eye, you’re not going to feel inspired to make use of it.
