When you are setting up your Pensacola, Niceville, FL gardens & pools, it can be overwhelming with all of the different choices. Instead of feeling confused about how to move forward with your pool, you can work with experts to figure out exactly what you need to have a great experience in your backyard. In this article, we are going to talk about creating a backyard oasis with your backyard gardens & pools.
Gardens & Pools – Where to Start
Whether you are getting a new pool and putting a garden by it or you already have a pool and want to add a garden or vice versa, you need to have a few things in order before you can create this paradise. Let’s go ahead and look at those things:
Everything starts with an idea and it is the same when it comes to land and poolscaping. The next step is turning that idea into a plan. As you begin to plan and everything is taking shape, you are able to make those changes that you had imagined to create the amazing pools & gardens you have always wanted. You can take a sketch pad and start to draw out some of your ideas or even make a list of things that you want to see in your yard.
Know Your Available Options
There are different types of plant life in each region. You need to know what plant life is going to thrive where you are because Florida summers can be hot. You can speak to a professional about which trees and shrubs are going to be the best bet for you. You also need to determine which plants you will be able to put in any enclosed pool area. If there are untamed plants, they could cause problems with your enclosure.
Greenery or Stonework
If you enjoy a green surrounding then you might want to create an exotic poolscape with tropical plants. If you plan things out properly, you can even add privacy with these plants. Add some pops of color with planters and hanging baskets. If you have colorful annual container plants you can swap them out for flowers that like cooler temps.
If you have a busy life, you might not want to deal with greenery and opt for stonework. Stone, brick or decking does make it easier to maintain your backyard but you don’t have to have a boring poolscape. Look for texture and contrast to appeal to your senses. You can mix things up by having rocks and stone slabs.
