Any backyard paradise will ultimately be separated from the ordinary to the extraordinary by the elements surrounding the pool. This again is where having a talented design/build firm such Dreamscapes is key to a successful project. The softscape is what helps to beautify and accent the pool and hardscape while also providing privacy, shade, and segregating play and garden areas from poolside. The planting selection and design is also important around the pool because some trees, plants and flowers make better choices than others. Bees, fallen leaves/twigs, etc. can all effect the overall enjoyment and maintenance of your pool. Many clients forget to include the planting and landscape lighting for their yard in their overall budget but in many case these finishing touches are what will complete the yard and make for a perfect finished project.
