As we stroll into the warmer days of summer, you might be thinking about adding an above ground pool to your backyard. But just because you want a place for your family to cool off doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice beauty and visual appeal. Here are a few above ground pool landscaping ideas to help you out.
Create a Flower Bed Border
Upgrade the look of your above ground pool landscaping by creating a flower bed border. Adding edging, mulch, and shrubs around the outside gives the whole a thing a permanent appeal that is quite eye-catching. Even a few pieces of solar lighting or flowers in brightly hued pots can give your backyard a beautiful pop of color. Looking for a special touch? Place wood posts in your flower beds and add hooks to string Edison bulbs over the pool for nighttime swim sessions.
Frame It With Added Seating
Another above ground pool landscaping idea is to frame the pool with seating. This can be with a deck, stonework, brick, or another type of material. You could even build custom benches around the outside of the pool and stain them for a finished appeal. Having a place to lounge along the exterior of the pool serves two purposes: it gets rid of the eyesore while giving everyone a place to hang out in the sunshine while entertaining.
Use Brick to Create a Walkway
Finally, you can use brick to create a walkway around the above ground pool. This helps keep mud and mess to a minimum when the kids splash around, while giving you a finished appearance. Best of all, you can build planters or places to sit around the walkway using different bricks with varying textures and sizes.
