Outdoor Swimming Pools and Garden Design
Come winter, outdoor swimming pools attract leaves, debris and general garden waste; they can ice over and tend to look a bit worse for wear. Unless the pool is heated, you're unlikely to be swimming in it at the beginning of the year, January is certainly not the best month for a pool party. But if you would still like your pool to look stylish and neat there are a few things you can do.
Soft Landscaping Garden Design
One of the most important features of a beautiful swimming pool and garden design, is soft, complimentary landscaping. Choose a range of plants, shrubs and trees that will bloom in winter as well as in the warmer months. This way your garden and swimming pool will remain beautiful even when the ice and snow of winter arrives.
Swimming pool and Garden Designer
To help your outdoor swimming pool look its best in winter, hire a dedicated garden designer, Katja Griffiths from Design by Katja who looks at the garden and swimming pool as a whole and designs an appropriate landscape to encourage unity and beauty all year round.
An outdoor swimming pool and its surrounding garden should be a design feature in its own right. With the right soft landscaping chosen by a professional garden designer, who will include the swimming pool design, you can appreciate a stunning garden for all 12 months of the year.
