What To Plant Around A Pool
Leaves falling into the swimming pool from overhanging or neighbouring trees is a common problem.
Minimising the number of trees around a pool is one solution, but it also eliminates any welcome shade.
Deciduous trees are a great choice for poolside planting. A pool cover can be used to keep the water leaf-free during the cooler months of the year when they drop their leaves.
Shadesails are an alternative to poolside trees. They come in a large range of colours and sizes, and are available at hardware stores or can be custom-made for your site.
