Using the Yard
What many people fail to realize is that the yard in which a pool is located can be modified to enhance the magnificence of a pool. That is why you want to think about what features need to be included that can really enhance the pool, such as landscaping or outdoor features.
Ways to Improve the Yard
Improving the yard goes beyond just adding grass. You also need to think about the types of plants you want to place, and if there are any decorative touches (fountains, statues, etc.) that can be used to make the pool stand out more. You do not have to go over the top (especially if you have a simple pool), but landscaping can definitely help turn the yard into a wonderful backdrop to the pool.
Outside Living Areas and Features
Another design aspect you can do is to add an outside living area around your pool.
Outside living areas are great because they add enjoyment for the owners. Different examples of outside living areas include the addition of a lounge, kitchen, or bar.
While having a pool is exciting in itself, don’t forget the yard. After all, the yard can be what makes the pool design even better. So think about landscaping and adding an outdoor living space.
