Living in Sunny South Florida, many custom built homes often include a swimming pool. A swimming pool can enhance and add additional ways to entertain guests, visitors and family. A pool is the perfect upgrade to a home and landscaping your pool area will create curb appeal. When landscaping your pool area one must consider the type of plants, trees and materials that will surround the pool. The purpose of a pool is to have the time to enjoy it, so make it easy for yourself and ask an expert on what to do for landscaping around a pool. Here are a few suggestions to have the time to enjoy your pool rather than spend all of your time cleaning up and working around the pool:
1.Think about plants that are green year round. During the winter months temperatures are suitable for swimming but may be too cold for seasonal flowers.
2.Think twice before planting trees and plants that shed leaves otherwise you’ll will be spending time either raking or cleaning out leaves, flowers, petals out of the pool.
3.Most plants to do not like chlorinated water so plant your trees, plants and flowers a good distance from the pool.
4.When planting trees consider growth and roots. Planting trees too close to a pool can cause the roots to eventually end up underneath the concrete of your pool.
Landscaping can change the appearance of a pool area and create a homey feel. Consider adding a guest house or pool house to create a vacation getaway or a spa right in your own backyard.
