Pool landscaping refers to any type of landscaping that has to do with a pool and its surrounds. This could mean landscaping around the perimeter of the pool itself, structural walls, buildings or even theme or decorative ideas to capture the bigger picture of the overall pool design.
There are so many pool landscaping ideas and options to choose from but planning the right landscaping to work in with your overall pool design is important. Experienced pool builders like Award Pools Group in Sydney can help steer you in the right direction, offering you professional advice and then presenting you with a unique pool landscaping design.Swimming pool areas offer challenges and opportunities for landscaping, and there are certain considerations that need to be thought out fully when doing pool landscaping. This includes privacy, safety, beauty, and convenience. In Sydney, pool landscaping may also be subject to local planning regulations.
Fencing is an important consideration in pool landscaping designs, as not only are there laws governing safe pool fencing, but small children are often around, so you don't want to take any risks. Outdoor lighting is also an important safety feature as night swimming is even more fun in a well lit area.
Plants will provide beauty and privacy around a swimming pool. They can be used to hide swimming pool equipment. Using plants in your landscaping design will help your swimming pool blend more naturally with the surrounding environment and by growing plants tall enough, they will form privacy screens around the pool area. Aim for low-maintenance plants - planting a deciduous tree around a swimming pool will mean you end up with a never-ending supply of leaves in the water! Plants with invasive root systems can damage a swimming pool over the years.
