Pool Decking Sunshine Coast
Gone are the days when the swimming pool was just surrounded by grey concrete, brown soil or green grass. Now if you long for your own pool in your own backyard you probably want splendid lighting too, so you can swim or just lounge idly around the pool 24 hours a day sipping cool drinks whenever you feel like it — and you need good-looking, comfortable chairs to lounge in luxuriously. You may want water features and lush greenery — and even a fire pit to focus the space and make it cosy — after all, this is a major extension and expansion of your home, way of life and way to entertain, especially on the Sunshine Coast.
First the whole look
So the pool border is all-important. The pool has to integrate with its space and you need easy access too. If you would like a grass surround, it should be sown at least five feet from the pool edge because of the chemicals in the water. Remember, unless you are dead set on grass then paving stones can be just as attractive, and require far less maintenance. You don’t want to spend most of your time cleaning out the dirt and debris tracked into the pool. Wood is organic and exotic, and pebbles are elegantly reminiscent of a Japanese garden; bricks are unusual and make a handsome decking. Pots and planters create atmosphere.
How about a brainstorming session?
Come and talk to Designer Garden Landscapes before making any decisions. Let us show you some of our award-winning landscaping designs and try to inspire you. Then we can develop your pool area together — and when you give us a budget we stick to it. Above ground pools can be just as stylish as in ground ones — great looking, and they may even be cheaper to install, so they really are worth considering seriously. Even an exercise lap pool should look striking. A lot depends on the lie of your land, and the size and shape of your yard. You may want to make your pool a part of your outdoor entertaining area, or tile it so that it is a pool by day and a fountain by night.
