If you have a swimming pool at home, consider the safety. Don’t neglect it because a swimming pool can be a dangerous place for kids and pets. Whether you have an above ground or in ground swimming pool, the safety should be employed to keep the people comfortable when accessing this fabulous structure. A swimming pool is an important element in the backyard. It can be a stylish addition for those who want to increase the value of their modern home design. It will dominate the landscaping design of the outdoor backyard. A safety fence should be installed around the pool. It keeps the kids or even intruders to stay away from the pool.
Don’t forget to clear the area around the pool. It can reduce the people to having injured or fell off the swimming pool if the surrounding area is clean and sleek. But it does not mean that you have to neglect the look of the pool landscape plan. The plan and design is not similar for in ground and above ground swimming pool. The potted flowers and plants are beautiful to place around the above ground swimming pool. Avoid planting the flowers and shrubs right away around the above ground pool for the root system may affect it. If you have an inground swimming pool design, the corner space can be decorated with various pebbles, rocks, gravels and plants. They can create a natural look in a swimming pool.
Actually the shape of a swimming pool also affects the ways you apply the backyard landscaping ideas. The people can install a long swimming if the backyard is very narrow. A square shaped or a kidney shaped swimming pool is another great option. If you want to unwind around the swimming pool, you can set several wicker furniture pieces. They are elegant and natural. You can also set a simple stone fireplace, potted plant and excellent stone decoration to increase the beauty of outdoor pool landscaping. If you have more money, you can add a waterfall feature around the pool. The string lighting is also nice to illuminate the entire space. It brings the festive ambiance.
