Intimate vs. Spacious Landscaping Around Swimming Pools

A pool in your backyard can be a great place to lounge and get a bit of sun.  But, if you want to go one step further, you can design your pool so that you get a complete outdoors experience.  Pools can be constructed in various shapes and sizes, just like bodies of water in the natural world.  They can also be accentuated with picturesque ponds, tiny wooden bridges, decorative accents like urns and sculptures as well as mood lighting that comes on at night.

Decorating your poolside in this way will make it into a little paradise that you’ll want to disappear into any time of the day or night.  Whenever you need to get away for a short while and pull your thoughts together, looking at the fishes in your koi pond or just enjoying the sight of a flowering tree will help to center you.  Your poolside can contain a number of little nooks and crannies which are conducive to meditation.  An intimate pool like this can also serve as a romantic getaway for you and that special someone.

On the other hand, if you want to create a poolside which is more conducive to socializing, you’ll want to have a lot of space and keep things really open.  A poolside bar, a net for water sports and a great sound system are a must.  If your backyard looks on a beach, you’ll want a completely unobstructed beach view for your guests to admire.

Whether you choose to make the landscaping around your swimming pool intricate and intimate or open and spacious, we’re here to help you create the kind of poolside you want.  A quiet poolside which looks like a Japanese garden can be as invigorating as a luxurious one where you can throw a pool party.  Contact us to create the kind of pool design you visualize for your backyard.
