When you think about the perfect Perth yard, what are the essentials? A nice lawn to relax on is great. You’ll definitely need to have some shade for those roasting hot sunny days. Oh, and what about a pool? Yes, a pool is right up there on the list. The thing is though, you can’t just install a pool in your garden and that’s that. Without good landscaping, your pool just won’t look right. There will be no flow throughout your outdoor space.
A pool minus some landscaping is just that – a big tub filled with water. That’s all ok if you just want to have a pool without any aesthetic value. However, if you want your garden to look beautiful, you need to incorporate your swimming area into your overall garden design in perth. You need to consider aspects such as incorporating decking, paving, shrubs, flowers, trees, general shade and so on into your pool area. Doing this will soften the look of your pool surroundings and will create a cohesive design to be enjoyed for many years to come.
Creating a flow
Your home doesn’t just stop at the outside door. Your yard and pool are also parts of your personal space. Essentially, your garden is just an outdoor living area. When it comes to pool landscaping, Perth designers have huge experience. We are lucky to enjoy being able to spend a great deal of our time outdoors enjoying our beautiful climate. So, it’s important to think about how you will use your pool to further enhance that seamlessness between outdoors and indoors. Consider hardscaping to connect your home to your pool area. Your landscaper can offer advice on how best to do this and what plants will thrive in this part of your yard.
An area of beauty
Without landscaping, your pool area risks looking utilitarian and harsh. If you’d prefer a softer, more elegant look that’s natural yet defined, the pool landscaping Perth professionals at Landscape By Design will work with you to realise your vision. We can create the right poolscape that changes and deepens as the plants around it mature over the years.
Incorporating your pool into your garden
An ideal way to create a beautiful transition between the garden and the pool is to incorporate everything into the softscape. Alternatively, it’s possible to make more of an intermediate area by adding flowerbeds, potted plants and so on. Landscaping is also useful for creating shade around the pool for those roasting hot days. Trees and plants can even be utilised for creating a cooler flow of air throughout your yard.
So, you see, there is far more to poolscaping than just adding pretty plants and flowers. Creating a living outdoor space with an amazing flow creates a sense of beauty in your yard.
