Once you build a custom pool, you should create a backyard landscape that best highlights your new investment. At Pools by Design, we do more than help you build the pool of your dreams. We also create a landscape design that matches the style of your pool and your home. One great option for your landscaping is to include palm trees. These trees give a tropical feel to your yard but are also incredibly easy to grow in the Tucson climate. If you’re looking for a landscaping idea that is easy to maintain without looking basic, this is the way to go.
Here are a few of the reasons you should use palm trees in your landscape design:
When you decide how to design your backyard landscape, you need to consider both form and function. You want something that looks unique and gorgeous, but you should also think about the effort of maintaining your design. More lush and green designs look great but require hours and hard work to keep them looking great.
Not everyone wants to spend their precious time maintaining a backyard. Palm trees thrive in Tucson’s climate, so you won’t have to worry about complicated maintenance. In fact, you probably see these trees growing all over Arizona. That is because they add elegance to any landscape, but without all the work.
A custom pool and spa can make your backyard feel like a vacation destination. Your landscape design should complement this so that when you go for a swim you feel far away from all of your daily concerns. Palm trees create a tropical feel for your yard, and it can make you feel like you are in a resort by the beach every time you go for a swim.
There are many different types of palm trees, so you can customize your landscape design by choosing the varieties you like best. One great option for a tropical ambiance is pygmy date palms. These are smaller plants and easier to maintain. You can also go with Mexican fan palms, a more common variety in Arizona.
You can choose taller palm trees to surround your pool and create a sense of privacy and seclusion. When you place palms around your pool, it provides a natural barrier so that you will feel like you are in a resort or on a gorgeous island. Although planting close to the pool may require more maintenance to remove debris from the pool water, it can be well worth it for the luxury it creates.
Date palms are one of your best options for a natural palm tree barrier, as they can grow up to 75 feet tall. Pineapple palms are another great option. Although they are slow growing, they eventually reach heights of up to 60 feet. Both of these species of palm feature sturdy single trunks and make a great tropical accent for your landscape.
From palm trees to classic desert landscaping, Pools by Design will work with you to create a landscape design that matches your custom pool.
