Landscape Design For Your Pool
With the first heatwave of the year coming, plus the 4th of July, your pool is guaranteed to get some use the next coming weeks. One of the most popular landscape trends of 2018 has been landscape design around in ground pools. With some simple changes you can transform your pool area to a backyard oasis. If you are interested in landscape design for your pool, please consider Naturescape, LLC. Designs can be done as a simple hand drawn design for the budget conscious or can be done with a computer image to give you a good sense to what the finished project can look like.
Plants, flowers and trees can be mixed with hardscapes to make for a natural and alluring landscape design. Grass can be strategically added so guests can have a place to sunbathe and kids can avoid hurting their toes on the hard and hot concrete.
Small trees should be selected carefully for natural shade on the patio surface. Keep them professionally pruned so they stay healthy and strong. Ornamental grasses provide a unique look and are great for making a focal point. They can even be placed in a pot on your pool’s deck. There are many creative ways to add natural privacy. Naturescape can design and install trees, floral trellises or fencing for instant privacy.
