Summer is officially here, which means we’re set to be spending even more time poolside. And in doing so, you might find yourself dreaming about how you might change yours for the better. Because a pool is so much more than something just for swimming in. It forms the centrepiece of an outdoor oasis: a place to unwind, entertain, and simply exist in the moment. In this blog post, we’re going to look at how to achieve the perfect poolscape for your very own slice of paradise. What is Poolscaping? At its most basic level, poolscaping encompasses the overall design, layout and surrounding features of a pool area. It focusses not only on the pool, but also the many other aspects that contribute to the space’s functionality, atmosphere and style. In addition to patios, decks and plants, this includes features such as outdoor bars, loungers and lighting. The purpose is to unify the pool and garden by creating an environment that is both cohesive and inviting. In turn, this helps to maximise both the space and your enjoyment of it.
