Why Use a Landscape Company to Plan Your Swimming Pool?

The first company many homeowners call when they want a swimming pool is a pool company. Sounds like a good idea, right? Yes, it is but only if you are simply looking for a pool and not a beautiful outdoor living area that incorporates a swimming pool.

When you want beautiful pool area, you are better served with a company that is familiar with the entire scope and not simply the pool. Most of those lavish pools you see in magazines were designed by a great landscape designer—not a pool salesman. When planning a pool project, a landscape designer will consider all aspects to ensure both beauty and functionality are met:

  • Pool decking
  • Shade area
  • Plantings
  • Lighting
  • Entertaining/lounge area
  • And more


In most cases, the area around the pool (which includes the pool deck, lighting, planting, etc.) will cost more than the actual swimming pool. Therefore, if the majority of your money is going toward elements outside of the pool, doesn’t it make more sense that a landscape company plan the entire project?

In fact, we have been brought into pool projects more times than not by pool contractors who simply cannot design the scope of project their clients desire. We commonly work with many different pool contractors to create these projects. So if you are in the market for a lavish outdoor living space that incorporates a swimming pool, consider calling a company who has experience designing and installing pool area landscaping. Chances are they know a few good pool builders they can bring in!
