Best Landscaping Plants For Pool
Once the swimming pool is in, the next thing to consider is to create landscaping to do it justice. There are several best landscaping plants that suited for the area around a swimming pool. One example of best landscaping plants for pool is tropical perennial plants. Tropical perennial plants, such as banana trees, canna (a type of lily), elephant ear and umbrella plants make ideal accents to a pool. Landscape the pool with larger trees, like the banana tree, in the rear of the pool, so you can look at them from a deck or from the pool gate entrance. Situate smaller flowering perennials, like the canna, in decorative containers near the pool steps. When fall and winter comes, banana trees for instance, require a heavy winter mulch to stay healthy through the cold months. When pool season reopens, the tree should be back to producing fruits, given ideal climate conditions, or creating large palm fronds.
