A pool is a fun and functional staple for any home, serving as the focal point for outdoor design. Whether you’re thinking about a pool installation, just finished putting one in, or are looking to get your backyard ready for summer, you can make the most out of your outdoor space through custom landscaping design crafted with your pool in mind. Read on for a few quick tips when designing your dream backyard.
1. Complement Your Pool with an Outdoor Fireplace
Planning to spend the warmer months in the water? Once the sun sets, you don’t have to take the party inside. Not only does an outdoor fireplace provide a little backyard warmth, but with the right materials and a custom design to match your pool, it can be the final touch to bring your outdoor space together.
2. Elevate Your Pool with a Water Feature
You don’t have to be in the water to enjoy the water. If you’re looking to turn your space from a yard to an outdoor paradise, features like water falls and fountains can provide a perfect complement to your pool, creating a seamless design experience especially when combined with creeping plants and ground covering.
3. Every Step Counts
A pool isn’t just a standalone feature. Carefully thinking through how your pool connects to your home and the broader outdoor space can make all the difference between a backyard pool and true outdoor living. Custom walkways that incorporate materials matching or complementary to the pool itself can tie everything together into one, complete experience.
4. All-in-One Entertaining
Outdoor kitchens are the latest trend in Minnesota summer living. Not only do they make poolside entertaining easier than ever, they can also complete the full feel of your full pool landscape.
