Pool Gardens, and what to consider when planning them.
When planning a garden around a pool, it is important to research the right plants due to pool chemicals, humidity levels and intense sunlight surrounding the pool area. Look for hearty plants that can survive such microclimates, are easy to take care of and still make it look like paradise.
Consider plants such as:
Backyard Banana Tree
Bird of Paradise
Ornamental Grasses such as Porcupine Grass
Martha Washington Geraniums
Ornamental Sweet Potato Vine
Remember to top up the garden with some great mulch as it helps keep the moisture in the soil longer. Find mulches, soils and aggregates at www.soilmasters.ca.
