A well planned landscaped backyard oasis is a great addition to your swimming pool and spa.  It’s the perfect imitation of what is found in natural surroundings – water and foliage. Here are a few landscaping concepts you want to make sure you incorporate in your landscaping theme to compliment your swimming pool and spa.


  • Incorporate Shade Trees.  Plant trees that provide shade, don’t shed a lot and don’t have an invasive root structure. In Florida, a good choice is a palm tree which has a small root ball structure and sheds little.
  • Plant Pockets. If your going for a “natural appearance” with rocks and irregular pavers, use plants in between spaces to soften pool landscaping features. Use plants that have a low height and spread such as ground covers.
  • Go For Height. Swimming pools are horizontal so it’s important to incorporate various heights in your landscaping such as raised beds that add vertical height to a swimming pool landscape.  Decorative containers filled with dwarf trees or shrubs can also provide height.
