In recent years, natural pool landscape architecture has really taken off as a popular pool design trend. Before we go any further, let’s clarify. We’re not talking about natural pools, e.g., pools that don’t use any chlorine or other chemicals for filtration. We’re talking about pools that are designed to look like they’re a natural body of water, but still use the filtration systems you’d find in a normal pool.
Homeowners are finding that a pool that looks more like a natural body of water is more aesthetically pleasing and creates a more natural landscape in their backyard. This in turn creates a more unique outdoor living setup. So what are some of the essential features for a more natural looking pool? Keep on reading to learn more!
4 Essential Features for Natural Pool Landscape Architecture
Rocks can be used for both form and function in a natural pool landscape. Large rocks can be used as a natural diving board.
Water features are another essential. Most often, this takes the form of a waterfall, but there are other ways to incorporate natural-looking water features as well. A waterslide, for example, can take on the appearance of a small stream feeding into a pond. Kids are sure to have fun with water features, and they’re a great way to create a natural feel.
Plants, Trees, Bushes
Plant life is another important part of a natural pool landscape. The right arrangement of flowers, trees, bushes, and other vegetation really takes the natural concept to another level.
Dynamic topography can also be used to create a more natural effect. A landscape architect knows how to shape the contours of your yard to make your pool look more natural, while maintaining the functional aspects needed for an outdoor living setup.
