Here, in WA, having a pool is more of a necessity than a luxury if you have the space and finances. However, you can’t just stick a pool into the ground and that’s it. There needs to be time and thought spent on your Perth landscaping. When it comes to this, it’s best to consult with the professionals to ensure everything runs smoothly and according to plan. It’s very common to run out of steam when you tackle your pool area by yourself. It can also be pretty difficult to complete the project if you’re unsure about what you’re doing. You need to plant and landscape carefully, with one eye on the future to ensure everything looks great for years to come.
When it comes to getting inspired, it’s a good idea to have a look around at friends’ pools to see what works for them. You can also browse through magazines to figure out what you like. Whether you’re working alone or with a professional who specialises in pool landscaping Perth, it’s a good idea to have some images printed out so you have a pretty good picture of what type of look you want.
From there, your professional team can work with you to ascertain what is doable in your yard. They will know all about the local soil conditions as well as about what plants will work best around your pool. It’s crucial to bear in mind that where trees and shrubs are concerned, ones that grow high and wide and/or that have far-reaching roots systems and falling leaves are not going to be a great idea. It’s important to minimise the potential for debris falling into your pool.
With all this in mind, we recommend that you have a good think about what you need and want very early on in the planning of your swimming area. Low-maintenance or maintenance-free are keywords that you need to bear in mind. Life is busy enough without constant pruning and cleaning out your pool!
To add some interest to your swimming area, it’s a great idea to plant a mixture of colourful perennials alongside pretty annuals. Drought and sun-tolerant plants are another great aspect to add into the mix. You’ll want to add in some shade too. Vines work especially well for this purpose. Native grasses are also beautiful when planted strategically.
