How to Landscape Around a Pool?

Answer

The most important thing to think of when landscaping around a pool, is the need to use flowers and shrubs that will survive full sun, since pools are usually in full sun. You want to think about how tall the bushes or flowers will get if you want a natural privacy screen. Remember to use river gravel or other rock mulch or ground cover so there is not any runoff into your pool area. You also need to think about the growing zone you are in and pick out plants and bushes accordingly. Just because it is by your pool doesn't mean it can be tropical if you live in the north!
