Pools by Design does more than creating your dream pool and spa. We also help you customize a landscape design to create an outdoor space that matches your vision. When it comes to landscaping, you can custom design whatever atmosphere you prefer. While some homes look great with a flashy backyard, you may want something more understated for your outdoor living space. We will work with you to create a design that you are happy with, and for many homeowners, this translates to a simple, classic landscape.

Here are just a few of the benefits of choosing a more simple landscape design:

Low Maintenance

When you create your landscape, you should consider both how you want it to look and the amount of effort you are willing to put into maintenance. The Southern Arizona heat makes it harder to grow certain plants. While lots of vibrant flowers and tropical plants can look great, you will need to commit to a lot of upkeep to maintain that look.

A simple landscape design doesn’t have to be boring. In many cases, you can make use of rock features or landscape architecture in order to add flair to classic landscaping design. Both of these options keep it simple and require little to no effort to keep them looking beautiful.  

Less Expensive

Building a custom swimming pool and choosing a landscape design to accompany it can get expensive very quickly. When you start a project such as creating a customized backyard, you likely have a budget in mind. Everyone has different priorities for the money they spend on yard design.

When you choose a simple landscape design, you free up more money for other projects. For example, you may want to create an extravagant pool with complex water features. Spending less money on landscaping may make this option more affordable. You could also use the money you save for an outdoor kitchen, a fire pit, or gorgeous patio furniture.

Minimalist Landscape Design

Simplicity has become more of a trend in recent years. Going for minimalist landscape design can actually be a deliberate decision. One example of this that is common in Tucson, AZ is called “xeriscaping.” This is a design that focuses on rocks and a small number of desert plants such as cacti. Although the design elements are minimal, the results are often striking.

Choosing a minimalist route for your landscape design also helps your pool and home stand out. If you go big for every aspect of your custom backyard, you may realize that it’s difficult for any one element to capture attention. Keeping certain areas simple is a great option to direct focus.
