When you think about pool landscaping, what kind of pool landscaping ideas are going to give you the most enjoyment? Are you thinking about a full pool deck, just a side area of the larger pool, or a small area, perhaps closer to your pool door? Some things to consider before you begin pool landscaping: Is your pool big enough to support the type of pool landscaping you want? If not, how large are you trying to go? Are you a pool owner that enjoys swimming at certain times of the day? This is also a factor to consider before you make your decision on a project you have in mind.
After you have determined what kind of yard and landscape you want, you can move on to taking care of the whole thing. Sweep and mop the whole pool. Rake and mowing your yard. Pull weeds from the garden, potted plants, and the grass if they are growing too thick.
Lighting can be important as well, so consider that. You may want to consider a lighting plan that includes lights that will not cast shadows and illuminate the pool. You may also want to add lights along the walls and ceiling, as well as fixtures in the pool and around the swimming pool area. A great combination for illuminating the patio area with an ambient, beautiful glow year around-without increasing your electric bill.
