Knowing everything about your outdoor space is very important to how we can design your pool landscaping. Your backyard can undergo a serious transformation if planned correctly. If you desire an in-ground swimming pool, the allotted area needs to be smooth for creating the space in the ground. You must also consider the area surrounding the swimming pool. If you aim to have a tropical garden look, the landscaping has to be treated for the pool installation and for planting a new garden. The idea is to work within your means and still have space to entertain. You don’t want a cramped situation. Got to have a grilling area too you know.

There are different types of pool landscaping designs. If you have a cozy place in the heart of the city, your backyard space might be slightly limited. However, you can still have a beautiful lap pool installed. It’s just the right size for a daily swim. If your home has an outdoor kitchen or deck area, turn it into a Bahamian resort and extend the bar out into the pool. Who can turn down poolside margaritas?  Plus your Fourth of July will be a hit. If you plan on entertaining more in the evening, and your area’s weather permits it, add a firepit at one end of the pool. You can sit around it and tell ghost stories about how your backyard looked previously. Scary.

Add texture and color to the ground with pavers or tile. Rubber pavers are cool as they can create a design element within your pool landscaping and offer safety. Children will always run around a pool. Installing rubber pavers takes away the worry of someone falling a seriously hurting themselves.  It carries the same look as cobblestone and concrete.  Pavers are also very good for creating a distinctive border between the pool area and the garden.
