Building a swimming pool in your Potomac backyard is exhilarating. This is an exciting opportunity for you to turn your backyard into an inspired oasis. There are a plethora of landscape and water feature options to add to your Potomac swimming pool. In this article, we are going to talk about pool landscape and some features you may want to add.

Pool Landscape & Features to Consider

Some of the pool landscape ideas we list below, you may have been considering and others you may not have thought about. Either way, think about how they can fit into your backyard and the vision you have for your pool landscape.

You can create a pond that is any shape or size and add fun features to it. You may want to fill a pond with colorful fish and make a koi pond or you may want a garden pond with reeds, lily pads, and other fun vegetation. You could even put multiple ponds in your front or backyard landscaping to compliment your pool design.

Waterfalls are perfect additional features to add to your pool landscape. These water features add an element of soothing and relaxing background noise to your swimming pool. The way the water trickles down various rocks, or falls into the pool from a bowl. This water feature will bring your whole backyard oasis together.

Water Walls

It is not uncommon to find water wall and waterfalls going hand in hand with pools. You can make a water wall that pours into a gorgeous pool or allow it to lead to a brook that borders your property. You can spice your water wall up with a mosaic tiling with an original design or a standard design that you choose.


Waterfalls and spillways are similar but a spillway technically means water that flows out of a dam through a different section. You might want to have serval spillways that go from one pool section to another.


Another beautiful feature to add to your pool landscape is a river. Instead of having a pond, you can make a river that cascades or flows to surround your pool landscape. You can fill these rivers with waterfalls, fountains and aquatic vegetation or any other mixture of things you can think of. You may even want to incorporate a lazy river into the design of your swimming pool, thus adding an extra layer of fun to your backyard.

Pool Landscape – Making It Yours

As you are thinking about all the possible features you can put together, you will see that the sky is the limit. If you can see it in your imagination, you can create it in your yard. Think about what is going to bring you the most enjoyment out of these features and pick that for your pool landscape.
