When flying over the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex it would seem as though every single home has a pool in it's backyard. Our long summers and mild transitions out of spring and into fall mean an extra long season in which to take full advantage of owning one.
You only have to talk to someone who's had the wrong landscape planted around their pool to know that what you install near it is as important as the pool itself! You want to avoid planting trees that will drop debris such as leaves and flowers close to the pool that are not only a constant nuisance to remove but also may stain your pool's finish and surrounding decking.
Crape myrtles are a favorite for Texas landscape, and we love them for their native Texas hearty performance, but to save you from endless cleaning of the pool it would be wise to plant them in a different area of your property.
Having some grass directly adjacent to the pool is not only an easy and low maintenance landscape choice, but it also provides room for children or dogs to play safely by the pool.
Grasses and Perennials for Texture and Color
Ornamental grasses such as Pink Muhly, Gracillimus, and Adagio move in the wind and add texture to a design and compliment a pool beautifully. Colorful perennials are also a great choice to add decoration and visual interest to the landscape around a pool.
Don't make a mistake with the wrong planting, let us help you maximize your pool's beauty and your time enjoying it by designing a beautiful and low-maintenance landscape installation around your pool.
