Top Pool Landscaping Ideas and Designs For Backyards
June 10, 2022
A lovely backyard pool can be as soothing to the mind as it is refreshing to the body. Even a peaceful view of water, whether from inside your home or from your porch, patio, or garden, can be comforting to the soul.
According to research, being near, in, on, or under water can provide numerous benefits to our mind and body, including stress and anxiety reduction, an increase in overall well-being and happiness, a lower heart and breathing rate, and safer, more effective workouts.
But really, putting all these scientific benefits aside, you will surely agree that having your own backyard pool at home is an investment that pays for itself.
Backyard pool landscaping designs and ideas to steal this year
Whether your house is a glass-wrapped modern ranch, a rustic farmhouse, or a traditional Tudor, today’s patio and building materials enable your pool to easily complement the style and architecture of your home.
Many pool and landscape designs include different gathering areas with creative dining and seating areas, lush patio plants, and interesting lighting, assisting in highlighting your pool as the focal point of all outdoor activity—both for midday family fun and moodier nighttime gatherings.
Don’t know where to start? Here are some unique and stunning pool ideas and designs you can totally steal (hey, we won’t mind!) for your own backyard haven:
A Pool and Sauna Haven
A backyard pool is already a refreshing treat on its own – but what if you add a sauna to elevate the experience?
Did you know that the hot sauna cold plunge technique can trigger the elimination of body toxins and give amaaazing benefits to your body and mind?
A pool accessorised with a sauna is built for relaxation and more. Whether you’re looking for an antidote for tired bones and muscles or hoping to reinvigorate your vigour and passion, this poolside fashion trend is all you need to elevate your idea of fitness and fun.
Have a knack for a dreamy ranch ambience? All you have to do is add a few but defined rustic elements to create an organic setting in your backyard.
Think grassy landscape, minimal pavement, and a pool and stone terrace that presents the perfect spot for late breakfast meals, an afternoon tea, or even rounds of cocktails by nighttime. Be a little extra and add a makeshift waterfall using stacked stone slabs. And don’t forget dramatic lighting to spruce things up as soon as the sun comes down.
Semi inground Flower Power
If your backyard entertaining isn’t quite complete, and you have dreamed of a stunningly landscaped pool, creating the perfect oasis for your family and guests to enjoy, but have a difficult site, you may consider a semi inground pool.
Semi inground pools are a great alternative to a completely in ground pool or an above ground pool and can be much more easily built in most types of backyards. Make the spot feel effortlessly secluded and indulgent by lining hedges and flowering plants around it.
The key is to find strong yet radiant flowering plants that are easy to maintain and can withstand your pool’s microclimate. Consider Hawaiian hibiscus, kangaroo paw, star jasmine, succulents, and lots of palm trees, too.
