Does your Ohio home have an in-ground pool? Backyard pools are an awesome way to spend time outside all through the hot Midwest summer; however, landscaping around an in-ground pool can be tricky. You want the right combination of functionality and style, and you also want something that will last for several seasons. At Precision Landscaping Corporation, we are experts in all types of landscaping and hardscaping, so today we are sharing our favorite ways to complement a backyard pool.

Landscaping Around a Pool

An Interesting Walkway

Depending on where your pool is in relation to your deck or porch, it may benefit from it’s own unique walkway. Gorgeous stone walkways aren’t just for front entrances anymore and can really improve the look and feel of the area surrounding your pool. Consider a playful trail of individual stones, a flagstone-inspired design, or even faux wood options that combine the durability of concrete with the beauty of wood.

A Fire Pit

A backyard fire pit is the ultimate gathering spot for friends and family, and a dream come true for those that love to host. Fire pits come in all shapes and sizes, so designing one that will complement your in-ground pool would be a fantastic idea. Whether you choose a simple design or a grand statement piece, your backyard will be the favorite of all your guests. Just imagine an evening with all the adults gathering around the fire with drinks, while the kids enjoy a sunset swim.

Complementary Light Design

Finally, we love the idea of getting as much use out of your pool as possible during these short-lived summer months, so why not add lights and go for nighttime swims? String lights or bistro lights are the perfect way to accent a cozy outdoor living space and, by night, they make your backyard even dreamier. Work with the professional landscape lighting crew at Precision Landscaping Corporation to design a personalized lighting concept that will perfectly complement your pool.
