As the weather warms here in the Valley of the Sun, the prime growing season approaches. Spring is the best time of the year here to get your plants in the ground and well-situated before the harsh summer weather hits. Plus, it’s a great way to make your backyard space complete.

If you are in need of landscaping ideas for your pool area, then we’ve got information for you.

Plant Considerations
When landscaping near your pool, you’ll want to consider certain factors to avoid setting yourself up for more work in keeping your pool clear of debris and plant matter. Other considerations when selecting plants include:

  • Ease of maintenance
  • Privacy offering
  • Safety for pets and humans
  • Size and space available
  • Variety of plantlife
  • Color, texture, balance

At Creative Environments, we are big fans of including a diverse range of plantlife for visual variety. Succulents, ornamental grasses, vines, and trees make great options in addition to sweet smelling shrubs.

Raised container beds or tiered garden spaces make fun additions that can enhance any outdoor setting.
