The landscaping around the pool is key to the overall look and effect you want to create for your outdoor space. If the plantings are well-chosen and planned, they will show the best of the pool.The wrong choices can damage the whole scene. Find the maximum height and width of the canopy of a potential tree near the pool so you don't end up with something standing or occupying the pool and patio area.
When selecting shrubs to grow near the pool, choose those that add vibrant color to any landscape design, such as Hibiscus or Bird of Paradise. Plant palm trees to provide shade over the swimming pool in hot weather. Use lemongrass and geraniums to repel pesky mosquitoes. #shrubs #grow #near #pool
