3 Ways to Pair Your Pool With Your Landscaping, Scotch Plains, New Jersey

Creating a poolscape around the water will make the feature look less abrupt. With the help of pool decorating experts, you can create a surround that furthers the home spa feel and promotes a relaxing atmosphere. Here are three components to blend the pool with your landscaping.

How to Mesh Your Pool & Landscape

1. Stone or Tile Pool Deck

pool decorating Union County NJMany homeowners install pool decks that extend past the edges of the water to make the yard feel more cohesive. You may choose stone masonry or tile, depending on which matches your pool design and the surrounding landscape. This add-on increases the hangout area around the water while safeguarding the landscaping from becoming too wet.

2. Steps or Beach Entry

Make it easy for your family to enter the water by having a pool decorating team install stairs at several sides. These steps will unite the yard with the pool by leading from the ground level or pool deck directly into the water. This design element will make the transition between the grass or stonework and the pool feel natural.

Some companies can also install beach entries emulating tropical sand beaches. These options offer gentle slopes as you walk into the water as if the pool had its own natural beach. These entries are perfect for individuals with young kids, dogs, or mobility issues because they improve accessibility.

3. Wood Deck

If the pool is close to your home, consider making it easy to go from the house to the water by installing a wood deck to unite the two. Look for wood stains that offer excellent waterproofing to prevent splashes from damaging the material. Pool decorating companies often wrap these decks around the portion of the pool by the home and create stairs down to the yard so you can access every level of your outdoor space with ease.
