Plants are the perfect addition to create a relaxing poolside environment. If you’re lucky enough to endure warm months poolside, consider a few awesome ways you can use planters to accent your pool.
1. Stagger Planters Around the Pool Edge
Accent the edge of your pool by staggering plant placements. Add symmetry by evenly distributing your selected plants around your pool perimeter, or offset positions to add interest. Use square planters to maintain a modern touch, and use unique decorative grasses and flowering plants to set your poolside apart from the rest.
2. Use a Grouping
A grouping of planters is a classic way to add engaging visual elements to your landscape, so it stands to reason that a grouping of planters would enhance your “poolscape.” Use planters in varying heights to create a point of interest, or two of the same planters for some balance.
3. Give Yourself Some Shade and Privacy
Create some shade and privacy in and around your pool with strategic planter placements. Use a series of planters with tall decorative plants to create a pleasing setting that adds privacy. For the same effect with an overall lower cost, a long rectangular planter will do the trick. Select tall bushes or wide-leafed plants for extra shade and privacy.
4. Add a Stunning Solo Accent
For an elegant and understated touch, consider only using a solo planter and a statement plant to add an upscale element to your pool. Pick a classic planter in a neutral color and a bold plant for a high-end look.
Enjoy the warmer months and create a relaxing atmosphere poolside by making an easy upgrade with plants and planters.
