Landscaping Around an Inground Pool Advice

The swimming pool builders from Town & Country Pools offer this advice for landscape around pool:

  • Enhance the Aesthetics — Landscaping with trees, shrubs and flowers are ideal, but you need to do that with caution so you don’t plant a tree that has creeping roots as those could damage the pool structure and plumbing. You also don’t want a tree or flowers that will shed leaves into the pool. A deck, pool house, gazebo or stone paver paths add to the landscape around pool aesthetics.
  • Increase Safety — Swimming pools are a lure for children, and can be inherently dangerous so you will want to talk with your pool contractor about making your landscaping perform double duty — beauty and safety. Add non slip surfaces and a fence with a lock to keep everyone safe.
  • Keep it Private — If your backyard abuts the neighbor’s you may want landscaping to enhance privacy. Plants and pool structures can address this issue while adding to the ambiance of the outdoor living space.
