Many homeowners install swimming pools in their backyards to increase property value. In some regions, like in Florida, for example, the house with a swimming pool sells much quicker, but don't expect the same effect in California where the State Water Resources Control Board approved unprecedented emergency regulations that allow local law enforcement and water agencies to impose a maximum $500-a-day fine on water wasters. Before you go ahead and spend thousands of dollars on a swimming pool, check water regulations in your region and city. But if you already have a swimming pool, the next step is to incorporate a pool landscaping design that enhances the aesthetics and increases the value even more. Here are some things to consider when adding elements to create a backyard paradise.

Choosing the right design offers an efficient way to improve privacy. Planting tall shrubs or a row of trees along the fence perimeter provides a screen that allows homeowners to swim or sunbathe without worrying about prying eyes. Select species that do not attract bees and other insects to keep the area bug free.

Plants that are suitable for this application include ornamental grasses, evergreen trees, and ground cover. It is best to avoid using trees that shed their leaves during the fall. This will save time and money on the maintenance necessary to remove dead leaves from the water to keep them from clogging up the filters. It is also best to avoid using pea gravel in plant beds around the pool deck because it tends to scatter, and small pieces of rock can end up in the water. It is an interesting to add a rocky waterfall with flowers and exotic plants.

Using potted plants and planters adds diversity to the overall landscape design. The strategic use of planters can reduce the amount of square footage of deck or patio area, which can save money on the entire project. Utilizing stands creates a tiered effect without the need to dig up the yard. Another benefit is the flexibility and portability offered with potted plants. Homeowners can rearrange them anytime they feel like a change with minimal time and effort.

Outdoor lighting adds a dramatic touch to any swimming area. Plus, homeowners receive the benefit of being able to swim or lounge poolside after dark allowing them to maximize their investment. Many of these systems are low voltage, so it is possible for most homeowners to handle the installation themselves without having to pay for professional help.

You and your family may love to swim and play in the pool, but if you have areas around it surfaced with natural grass, you may consider artificial turf to add evergreen, comforting beauty to the picture. Artificial grass can survive a burning sun and also it drains much better than organic lawn. In Florida with strong tropical rains and storms, lawns get muddy and dirty quickly. Synthetic lawns on another hand drain better and never change its color, which will make your backyard with swimming pool look fresh, green and luxury any time of the year.
