Being paving landscapers, we’ll, of course, talk about pavers. As they are not only a safety part of having a pool but also add to the appearance of the area.


Stone Pavers

When it comes to paving around the pool, you must have a non-slip paver, either in the wet or dry, this allows for extra safety and helps to prevent slipping because there’s no doubt someone will be running around the pool when their not supposed to.

Natural stone pavers would be the obvious choice as they are non-slip as well as durable, solid paver that can withstand harsh elements like the weather and chemicals such as chlorine and salts. 

These natural pavers come in a number of colours and textures, offer low maintenance and can work well with any style your after. 


Shaded Plants and Other Trees

When it comes to the visual appearance of any pool area what will stand out and make an area look amazing are the trees and plants that surround the area. They not only look great but also offer protection against the sun.

What’s not nice are those trees that drop leaves into the pool. So when designing your landscaped area around the pool make sure you choose trees that won’t be dropping leaves everywhere.
