28 January 2020

Swimming pool landscaping is the process of designing the area around your pool in your backyard. It can include the presence of plants, pool fencing, paving, decking, furniture and lighting, to create a beautiful and coordinated backyard area around the pool. A good quality swimming pool landscaping excels in aesthetic appeal, safety and functionality. If done right, it also significantly improves every homeowner’s lifestyle by utilising their swimming pools’ full potential. Below are other swimming pool landscaping benefits for your home. 

Swimming Pool Landscaping Makes Outdoors More Attractive

One of the major benefits of a swimming pool is that it becomes an attractive focal point in your backyard. This can be shown off to the best advantage if you get the landscaping right. From the positioning of your pool to the plants you choose to place around it and your lighting design, good pool landscaping will ensure that your pool looks beautiful whether in bright sunlight or illuminated artificially after dark, no matter which angle you are viewing it from.

Swimming Pool Landscaping Makes Your Pool Safer

All backyard swimming pools in Australia have to comply with Australian Standard AS 1926, which ensures privately-owned pools are as safe as possible for children. Your landscaping design will need to take this into account, and can make the best use of the space to make sure your pool is a safe and healthy environment for the kids, as well as making it easier for you to supervise them in the pool.

Swimming Pool Landscaping Improves Functionality of Pool Area

Good pool landscaping covers the many different ways you will want to use your pool and the area around it. As well as creating easy access to the pool for swimming and relaxation, it will also support your entertainment needs, creating a sociable space around the pool, ideal for entertaining friends and family.

Swimming Pool Landscaping Increases the Value of Your Property

If you ever decide to move on and want to sell your home, it is important that your property is as appealing as possible to potential buyers. A well-landscaped backyard helps significantly with this. Your pool will instantly attract their attention as a beautiful feature, while the area around it will demonstrate the many different ways they can use the pool for fitness, relaxation and entertaining guests.

If your backyard looks attractive, this shows that time and care have been taken over the planning and maintenance of your property. This is highly important for potential buyers, as it means they will need to do less work on the home if they decide to buy it. Because of this, you are more likely to receive a higher price on your sale. If you want more information regarding swimming pool landscaping ideas, consult Tuckerman Landscaping and Design.
