When choosing plants for around a pool, it’s important to consider factors such as water splashing, humidity, and the potential for debris falling into the water. Here are some plants that are well-suited for use near a pool:
Ornamental grasses: Ornamental grasses are a popular choice for pool areas as they add texture and movement to the landscape. Some good options include fountain grass, maiden grass, and pampas grass.
Groundcovers: Groundcovers are a good choice for around the pool as they help prevent erosion and create a lush, low-maintenance landscape. Good options include creeping thyme, sedum, and some low lying ornamental grasses.
Evergreens: Evergreens provide year-round foliage and can help create a natural-looking privacy screen. Good options include boxwood, juniper, and yew.
It’s important to note that some plants may shed leaves or flowers into the pool, which can create extra maintenance. Additionally, some plants may have spines or thorns, which could be a safety hazard for swimmers.
