What You Need To Know About Poolscaping

February 28, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 128

Poolscaping or pool landscaping is one of the biggest challenges that many homeowners encounter and at the same time, offer all possible opportunities for people to express their artistic side. When finalizing the design in poolscaping, there are many factors that you have to consider such as practicality, privacy, convenience, safety and of course, beauty.

Following safety standards

One of the most important factors that you have to consider when doing poolscaping is considering the safety of both the process and the design. If you plan on having an in-ground pool installed, it would be wise to fence it with a locking gate so that little children would not accidentally fall into the pool. There are different colors, styles and designs to choose from, which can be decorative and safe at the same time. Also, do not forget to install sufficient lighting around the perimeter.

Privacy

Another important factor that you have to consider together with safety would be your privacy. You can install high fences around your yard so that there would still be privacy while you enjoy lounging and swimming around the pool. If you want, you can also go on the creative side by growing vines around it which will both provide you privacy and enhancement of aesthetic features.

Patios

Enhancing the area around the pool is possible with the addition of a patio. Aside from making the area more beautiful, this pool landscaping addition can also add a slip-resistant surface so that it would be safe to walk around the pool. You can also add colorful stones on the path, which will keep the surface cooler and resistant to slipping.

The addition of plants

The addition of plants in the area would make the swimming pool more inviting as well as decrease the need for its maintenance. Instead of planting a tree, you could go for smaller plants so that you would no longer need to clean the pool from dried leaves. Besides, their invasive root systems can pose potential damage to your pool after a few years.

Storage area

For practicality and convenience, installing a storage shed near the pool is a good idea so that you will have a place where you can store all pool toys, chemicals and other accessories that you use for your pools.

To make your swimming pool area more interesting, you can also add inflatables. When poolscaping, you can incorporate anything you think would make the area more beautiful and safe for the kids to run in. There are many materials and designs to choose from for your inflatables and not only are they decorative, but sage as well.

You can also add different accessories such as candles, potted plants, pillows, furniture and garden statues, to make the area more inviting. If you have the budget, you can also add a gazebo, waterslide, and a fountain to get the classic touch that everybody is looking for.

Since poolscaping is a tough job that not everyone is capable of doing, make sure that you hire a reliable contractor to get the job done for you.
