Different kinds of water features

Lush Oasis

Incorporating a mix of tropical plants and flowering that fill in all the spots and crevices around your pool can make you feel like you are in some excotic location. Not everyone prefers to have that open space surrounding their pool area; some people choose this design because they want to feel fully immersed into the pool by creeping plants. These plants serve as a romantic border that appears natural and beautiful. Keep in mind that having an abundance of plants and vegetation surrounding your pool requires constant maintenance. However, keep in mind how much time and resources it will take to keep up with this landscaping style.


Clean + Green

This type of pool landscape design includes clean and flawless line structure. This gives the home a more modern and put together vibe to it. It is not necessarily an intricate and elaborate customization process as other styles, but it still gives off a luxurious feel to it. This also provides more space for you and your guests to lounge around the pool area, barbeque, or play some outdoor games like cornhole. The design itself is very simple, but looks very ostentatious. Incorporate patio tables or cabanas in all the space that you have. Tailor-make your modern and sleek looking clean and green backyard.


Privacy Palms

Being in the state of Arizona, we are constantly surrounded by palm trees. However, we are also surrounded by desert and cacti. Going all in with palm trees around your pool can give off the illusion that you are in some tropical island far away from all of your problems. It gives off a resort-like feeling and that will leave you feeling more relaxed than ever. Your backyard oasis should add that calming feel to your home. Not only will it look pretty, but you will be participating in self-care in your very own home.


Simple Look

An elaborate design plan is not for every homeowner. Some people prefer to spend most of their time and money into the pool itself rather than the landscape design. A white picket fence, some cement around the pool, and some lawn chairs may be all that you are looking for. Matching your home’s style to your pool and landscaping style is an important thing to consider. It is not recommended to have a standard home than a very elaborate and expensive looking pool. You can still get all of the benefits from your pool while being cost efficient. Sometimes, less is more!
