Pool Landscape Design Ideas

Pool Landscaping IdeasIn South Florida, swimming pools are part of the landscape. While many pools are attractive in their own right, beautifying your property if you’re a pool owner is about accenting your pool – the centerpiece of your hardscape – with well-designed landscape elements.

Few things enhance the beauty of a swimming pool like an innovative landscape design. The right plants, lighting, hardscape and other accessories around your pool can be the difference between a mere watering hole and a breathtaking oasis.

Use Landscaping to Set the Stage

The right landscaping design can provide the perfect backdrop for your swimming pool. Want a tropical setting? Choose brightly colored flowers with lush greenery for a distinctly Caribbean feel. Lush palms grow well in South Florida and enhance that tropical feel. Add natural or artificial rocks as accents and to give the impression your pool is part of the natural environment. Consider adding a waterfall to introduce soothing sound and movement to your pool.

Here’s a tip: Choose plants that deter pests. Nothing spoils sunbathing like mosquitoes. Consider mosquito-repelling plants like catnip, rosemary and lemon balm.

Add Lighting to Enjoy Your Pool Day and Night

Landscape lights can turn your back yard into a serene and romantic nighttime sanctuary. Pool lighting can give your swimming pool a mesmerizing twinkle, while spotlights accentuate eye-catching flowers and landscape features. Consider versatile options like fiber optic lighting for your lighting design.

Build an Outdoor Kitchen or Bar to Add Sizzle to Your Splash

A built-in bar is the perfect way to attract guests and entertain friends. Mojitos and margaritas by the pool? This is South Florida, after all. The best back yard cooking area combines style and function. Consider how you’ll use the space, how much room you need, aesthetics and more.

Give Your Pool Character with the Right Interior Pool Finish

Your pool’s finish sets the mood. Prefer a crystal blue sparkling water? Select a light-colored pool liner to create a turquoise appeal. Want a mellower look? A dark-colored finish will give your pool a cool, relaxing tint. Ask your pool builder which finish materials and brands they work with and choose a pool finish that suits your mood.

Enjoy the Night – Install an Outdoor Fireplace

Even in South Florida, a fireplace is a perfect way to imbue your outdoor oasis with a warm, inviting ambience. You and your guests will enjoy evenings by the pool amid the crackle of firewood and the soft glow of firelight. Choose a fireplace design that reflects your yard’s style and suits your family’s needs. Whether it’s for warmth, open-air cooking, or ambience, an outdoor fireplace is an addition that will enhance your outdoor enjoyment.

Use Fencing to Enhance Safety and Privacy

A fence can help reduce the risk of children, animals and uninvited guests wandering into your pool. A good fence also creates a buffer so you can enjoy your pool in privacy. A well-designed fence also serves as a canvas against which your landscaper can design your yard.
