“Pool design” and “landscaping” – at first these two phrases may not seem overly related, but they do in fact go hand-in-hand. When it comes to Tulsa pool design, landscaping is extremely important. Why is landscaping so vital and what landscape design elements can complement your pool?
Having a well-thought-out landscape design plan when you’re constructing a new pool is essential because the pool is part of your outdoor environment as a whole.
“Your pool won’t exist in a vacuum. It’s a vital part of the whole backyard where the landscape provides the perfect setting. This is why pool design is best done by a landscape architect who understands the big picture of site function and circulation so the pool is placed in the most optimal location,” The Landscaping Network noted.
Yes, instead of just an ordinary pool builder who may focus purely on the pool construction elements, a landscape architect who also designs and builds pools will plan the swimming pool to function as part of a larger environment and know how to weave other landscaping and hardscape features into the overall outdoor living theme.
For instance, with custom Tulsa pool design a backyard can be transformed into a complete resort-like destination for the entire family. The custom pool can be designed with features for children like slides and waterfalls while also having elements for adults such as an attached custom spa. Other custom features can include zero or “beach” entry design, in-pool sun deck or tanning shelf, fountains, grottos, and specialty pool lighting. But these pool design elements are just part of a larger theme designed around the lifestyle of the homeowner and the architecture of the home.
“It’s important then to consider the landscape as a frame for your new pool. It should enhance pool design and solve problems at the same time,” The Landscaping Network added.
A custom pool is often accompanied by an outdoor kitchen area to offer the additional amenities needed to elegantly entertain. Outdoor fireplaces are another popular hardscape element added to the overall outdoor living space. Various hardscape elements can be selected to match the pool materials as well.
Knowing what plants to add around your custom pool area also makes landscape experience essential to pool design. Plants can provide additional texture, style, color, and privacy elements that really enhance the pool and outdoor environment design. These should also complement your overall outdoor living space theme.
