The space around your pool offers a vast field for creative expression. Transform this area into a corner of paradise by following these pro tips and inspirations.
A garden pool should be designed to be part of the décor and complement the surrounding landscaping. Take into account the shapes and lines of the garden as a whole – the pool must fit into this overall plan.
Well thought-out vegetation
Although furniture is an essential part of any pool, greenery and plants are equally important. Don’t underestimate the power of a potted flower or a well-placed shady tree!
You don’t need to be a landscaper or have a green thumb to add plants around your pool. Here are a few plants that are easy to care for and very attractive:
- Succulents: popular and easy to live with.
- Small shrubs and trees: interesting for the shade they provide.
- Palm trees: ideal for a tropical ambience.
- ornamental grasses: perfect in the sun, they can also withstand a breeze.
- Flowers: lavender, nepeta and other fragrant plants of the same type can nicely surround paved pool areas.
Where you place the plants is up to you. By choosing the right vegetation, try to minimize maintenance. Palm trees, olive groves, rosemary bushes and clumps of lavender add lasting beauty.
The art of playing with colors
Incorporating color around your pool can instantly change the atmosphere of the space, adding a dose of joy and dynamism. Here’s how to use color to create an inspiring pool area:
- Furniture : Opt for brightly-colored garden furniture and accessories to bring a Mediterranean touch to this space, or on the contrary play on neutral tones for a more designer look.
- Planters : choose your planters carefully and place them around the pool for a striking visual effect.
Whether you choose bold, vibrant shades or more subtle, soothing tones, your choice of colors can transform the space around your pool into an enchanting place.
To make the most of the long summer days, don’t miss out on night-time swimming. And to keep the fun going late into the evening, consider adding solar lanterns to create a magical atmosphere as soon as night falls.
When it comes to pool lighting, less is more. Choose subtle lighting. Mood lighting and soft lighting of plantings can be enough to create a cosy atmosphere.
Creating a relaxing oasis around your pool involves more than just vegetation, color, shade and lighting. Ornaments also play an essential role in bringing a more personal and original touch to your space.
