Pool Landscaping Tips


With spring only a few weeks away and the snow beginning to melt; many Maryland homeowners are beginning to think about the summer season ahead. With summer comes time spent in the water, whether you have a luxury pool or decide to head to the beach. Some Maryland homeowners will begin to consider installing a new luxury pool while other homeowners are looking for ways to update their outdoor living space. Either way, pool landscaping is always something for homeowners to consider as the summer gets closer. However, most homeowners aren’t sure how to approach pool landscaping. Here are some things to consider when handling pool landscaping.

  • Lighting- Consider how much time you will be spending outdoors in the evening over the summer. If you plan on utilizing your outdoor space in the evening hours, include lighting with your pool landscaping plans. Consider hanging lamps around your patio or standing lights around your luxury pool to provide adequate lighting for your guests.
  • Privacy- Use pool landscaping to provide added privacy for your outdoor living space. Instead of building a privacy fence surrounding your pool area, create a natural wall with shrubbery and trees with pool landscaping.
  • Planting- Planters and potted plants are great tools for pool landscaping. Plants and flowers can add color to your space and create a brand new look for your outdoor living area. Before you make a decision on the plants to use for your pool landscaping, consider a few things. Determine how much time you can dedicate to the upkeep of your plants as well as any pets you may have along with the climate in which you live.
  • Atmosphere- Maryland homeowners should take the time to think about what kind of atmosphere and environment they want to achieve with pool landscaping. Homeowners with children may look for a more child-friendly atmosphere while couples or single homeowners may try to achieve a more adult and sophisticated atmosphere.
