The summer is the perfect time to enjoy your backyard swimming pool, but how often do you really use your pool? If you don’t but would love to spend more time swimming, why don’t you? Could it be that it’s time to redesign your pool deck? The Landscape Design Center in Edgewater, Maryland, can help make that happen!
Improve Your Pool Deck Design
Redesigning your pool deck is more than just a new plan. It is a way to make your backyard more functional, deal with any drainage problems, and upgrade your hardscape materials. Some pool decks are TOO small or the spaces are disconnected and unusable. Some have settled and have drainage problems. And some are just outdated! Consider how you can move from one part of your pool deck to another; could it be more functional and entertainment-friendly? It is a good idea to have ample room for seating and entertaining, while also having space for proper traffic flow.
Once your new pool deck area is laid out with proper drainage and new materials, you can then think about adding other elements like; outdoor landscape lighting, plant material, and other unique features (i.e. fire pits and water features). All of these things can work together to give you a luxurious new space you won’t want to leave!!
Go from Poured Concrete to Pavers
Do you currently have an old concrete pool deck?? It might be time to make a change, especially if the concrete is old, cracked and settling. Pavers are a great choice for pool decks! They are longer lasting, easy to maintain, come with a texture so they aren’t slippery when wet, and end up looking so much better. Pavers also come in a variety of color compbinations and shapes. EP Henry, Belgard, Hanover and Nicolock are just a few of the distributors that we, at The Landscape Design Center in Edgewater, work with. Each one of these manufacturers have so many options to choose from. That way your pool deck can be unique and really fit your style.
Add Plants That Accent Your Pool Space
Nothing finishes a pool deck renovation off like some greenery. Plant material is an integral part of the design process. Even clients that prefer low maintenance landscapes, enjoy a lush finished product. There are SO many plants to pick from, where do you start!? It is important to work with a Landscape Designer to select plants that will give you color when you will be using the pool, as well as plants that will not drop a lot of debris. This debris could end up in the pool filter, and no one wants that. You also want to be mindful of foliage that is hard on bare feet (i.e. holly trees and osmanthus). The Designers at The Landscape Design Center will help you through all of these questions!
