Beautiful Landscaping Small Backyards With Pools
Small Backyards With Pools – A pool is a welcome backyard addition to almost any home. On the downside, if the yard is small, the pool likely takes up a good portion of it. Landscaping around the pool poses a challenge — areas around the pool are going to get wet and could become muddy. Permanent structures set next to the pool may be in the way, hindering access to the pool or the rest of the yard. Proper planning and space management maximize the utility and enjoyability of the pool and the backyard around it.
Landscaping Small Backyards With Pools
Because space is a premium in a small backyard with pools, seating that doubles as storage maximizes the utility of the space. Storage benches designed for outdoor use, placed along a fence or outer perimeter of the space, keep the open areas as large as possible — just keep the benches far enough away from the pool so people can access the pool easily. These benches can store pool gear and toys, grilling equipment or small garden tools. Regular movable patio chairs and tables round out the seating and entertaining areas of the yard.
Pavers for Small Backyards With Pools
If access to the pool requires walking through a grass or dirt area, pavers or stepping stones cut the mess drastically. This will keep both the swimmers and the pool a lot cleaner than trodding through dirt to and from the pool. Stepping stones and pavers come in a variety of shapes and colors; choose something that blends well with the rest of the decor of the backyard, including existing rocks and the patio.
