Design and Landscaping Ideas for Small Pools
From Pool FYI
A quaint, compact backyard can leave some disappointed homeowners with the idea that an inground swimming pool just isn’t in the cards for them. What this post from Pool FYI illustrates is quite the opposite. In the hands of a skilled landscape designer and pool designer, small yards can provide the intimate, spectacular venue for lavish inground swimming pool designs.
Here is an excerpt from the post:
A Compelling Secondary Focal Point
While the pool itself will be a primary focal point in your yard, choosing a secondary focal point can make for a dynamic backyard design. Examples of compelling secondary focal points might be a group of tall palm trees, an interesting pattern made of patio pavers at one corner or side of the pool area, a covered lounge area, a rock formation or a waterfall.
Enclosed Greenery Accents
Create a lush, uplifting setting around your smaller pool by adding brick planters to loosely frame the area and set it apart from the rest of the yard. Large square or round pots can serve this design purpose as well; just take care not to surround the pool entirely, or it might feel cramped and closed off. Choose a mixture of tall trees and flowering plants in your planters to open up the area and add visual interest.
