Pool Landscaping & Using Plants to Beautify Your Pool

When you are working on your pool landscaping, a big part of it is going to be the amazing plants that you have strategically placed around your pool area and throughout the yard. Although there are certain species of plants that we do not suggest planting around your swimming pool. You need to find pool friendly plants.

There are other decorative options to install around your swimming pool than just plants. Environmentally cautious landscaping can be designed, such as bark and rocks. There are plants and flowers that do require a lot of water that you can plant around your swimming pool if that is the look or design you are interested in.

When you are thinking about pool friendly plants, these plants need to thrive in an environment where they can be exposed to wind and salt. They also need to thrive in a semi-shaded or full sun space and be able to adapt. These plants need to be able to endure exposure to chlorine and any other pool chemicals. Some of the plants that fit the bill are:

  • Pineapple Sage
  • Peach Leaved Bellflower
  • Swamp Daisy
  • Ajuga

You can also look into shrubs for your pool landscaping needs. Some of the popular selections around the country are Siberian Iris, Mexican Orange Blossom and Mexican Mock Orange. While these are the popular options, there are plenty more that you can pick from and even the options below are not the end all be all list.

  • Bull Banksia
  • Blueberry Ash
  • Native Fuchsia
  • Holly Leaved Grevillea
  • Waxflower
  • Australe Storksbill
  • Himalayan Dogwood
  • Prostrate Grevillea

You want to find plants that don’t require a lot of maintenance and this means little or even no pruning. You want to make sure it helps you with the functions you might need as well. You may want plants to give you a break in the wind or you may want them to help you with privacy so you don’t have everyone looking in your pool area.
