Are you looking for a one-of-a-kind poolscape design that will transform your backyard into a more private, luxurious space? We’ve put together 5 simple ways for you to upgrade your poolscape and create an eye-catching design that can enhance your entire landscape.
Exciting Water Features
Reflection pools, rock walls, and rain walls are just three custom water features that you can add to elevate your poolscape. Not only will it add more visual interest and charm, but it can also boost your curb appeal and property value too. The soothing sounds of water are also therapeutic and can help you to relax and unwind after a long day at work.
Planting a new garden around the patio can add more texture and colour to the surrounding poolscape area. The right plants can add some vibrancy, along with privacy and shade. But to achieve that “wow” factor, the trick is to create borders between the pool deck, garden space and lawn. Giving a defined area for each will help your landscaping stand out, as well as increase the safety around the pool.
LED lights can be used in a variety of ways to bring your pool area and pathway to life. Programmable colour changing options can enhance your poolscape in exciting and interesting ways. Adding soft incandescent glowing lighting can also increase visibility for nighttime use and add more security to your backyard area.
Fire and water features go hand and hand. By adding an outdoor fireplace or fire pit, you can enjoy your poolscape year-round. Fire features can also be designed to blend with your landscape or used as a focal point by setting it on the edge of the patio or pool area. As the night cools down, it will provide a touch of warmth and that tantalizing smell that everyone loves.
Does your backyard look like a concrete jungle? Updating your hardscape with a gorgeous granite and a stone patio finish can instantly change the entire look of your poolscape. Choosing the right stone for the pool decking can also ensure that your pool area is both beautiful and slip-resistant.
