Specialists in Swimming Pool Landscaping

We combine elements of aesthetics, hardscape design, plant selection, safety considerations, and functionality to enhance the overall pool area. Pool landscaping can transform a plain poolside into a stunning outdoor retreat, incorporating elements such as plants, trees, flowers, hardscape features like decks and patios, lighting, and water features.

A well planned swimming pool landscape contributes to its usability, safety, and overall enjoyment. Whether for relaxation, entertainment, or enhancing property value, pool landscaping plays a crucial role in creating an inviting and personalized outdoor space around the pool.

What do you need to consider when landscaping a pool?

Your design wishlist

We begin by creating a detailed plan. Considering factors like the pool’s shape and size, your desired aesthetic, local climate, and any existing features that need to be integrated or removed.

Pool safety and compliance

Safety is paramount, Ensuring that there is proper fencing and gating around the pool area to prevent accidents and adhere to local safety regulations.

Plant selection and placement

Select plants that can thrive in the pool environment. Opting for varieties that are tolerant of pool chemicals, heat, and splashing water. Low-maintenance plants like tropical palms, ornamental grasses, and succulents work well.
Plant trees and shrubs strategically to provide shade, enhance aesthetics, and create a natural backdrop.

Privacy Considerations

Depending on your preferences and privacy needs, consider incorporating tall plants, trees, or hedges to create a natural screen around the pool area. This adds both privacy and a sense of enclosure.

Poolside Hardscape

Choose appropriate materials for the pool deck and coping. Options include concrete, pavers, natural stone, or wood. Ensure that the surface is slip-resistant for safety.
We can also Integrate hardscape elements like seating areas, walkways, and outdoor kitchens if desired.

Pool Lighting

Install outdoor lighting to enhance the ambiance and safety of the pool area. Consider underwater pool lights, path lighting, and accent lighting for landscaping features.

Mulch and Ground Cover

Using mulch or ground cover plants around planting beds helps to minimize weeds and conserve moisture. These also add a polished look to the landscaping.


Ensure proper irrigation for the landscape to keep plants healthy. Drip irrigation or soaker hoses are efficient options that minimize water wastage.

Thank you so much for the transformation in our garden I am delighted with the result.  Our garden has become an item of interest in the village, with people popping in to see the end result.

I must compliment the team, as they were ever mindful that they were working in an environment for “not so young”.
