Pool Landscaping Design Ideas

Landscaping Your Concrete Pool

Great landscaping is the key to producing a stunning swimming pool and backyard transformation.

So, if the construction of your concrete swimming pool has been completed and you have your new lifestyle, now is the perfect opportunity to take it to the next level. Landscaping your yard to enhance your swimming pool can be a fun process.

Whether you are after a formal look, Balinese or tropical resort look, or perhaps a natural billabong is more your style, the options are only limited by your imagination and budget.

Building your new pool is just the first step in creating your dream outdoor space. Next, you’ll need to design and plan out the landscaping around your pool so the two elements tie in together. Here are a couple of ideas for turning your yard into your own personal oasis. Keep in mind that a smart landscape design combines functionality, style and safety.

TROPICAL LANDSCAPING – Typically the plant selections for this style of garden include lush foliage found in the tropics, such as palm trees, magnolias, broad leafed plants and cordylines, with plenty of colour and flowers.

BILLABONG LANDSCAPING – Uses natural stone and rocks (or fake stone and rocks which look just like the real thing), ferns, native plants, leaves with different colourations.

FORMAL LANDSCAPING – This style is very neat and symmetrical, plants are well kept and pruned. Repetition of plant species is very common, as is the inclusion of flowers and colour.

Natural stone paving is a simple way of merging your pool with your yard, although be aware that pavers tend to pick up dirt and grime so you’ll need to pressure wash them occasionally.

Whether real or fake, stones and rocks help create a natural and tropical space for the perfect outdoor escape.

Unless you’re going for a sterile, modern feel, lush gardens are a beautiful and elegant way to compliment your backyard’s main feature. Greenery also helps merge the different zones of your outdoor space. Try planting some shrubs, flowers or even a palm tree or two for a tropical paradise look.
