Summertime in the Washington, DC and surrounding Maryland areas can be miserable without your own pool at the ready, but just having a pool doesn’t make it ready for summer. The hot, humid months will be here before you know it, so now is the perfect time to make sure your pool—and your pool area landscaping—is ready for your family and guests.
Your pool area can be the perfect place to entertain guests or enjoy lazy days with the family, as long as it’s ready to go. Making sure it’s ready for entertaining can help ensure that you get the most out of your pool area this summer.

Preparing Your Pool Area Landscaping for Summer
- Your pool area landscaping—and softscaping in particular—is an important key when it comes to entertaining by the pool. If you have dead or bare areas that you would like to fill in, you may want to look into hiring an expert like Four Seasons to get your pool area landscaping up to scratch, or even install synthetic turf to ensure lush greenery year-round. By preparing your softscaping in spring you can make sure that your landscaping is ready to survive the hot summer months.
- If your pool seems plain and bland, you may want to add some other elements to it. A professional landscaping team can suggest ways to improve your pool’s entertaining space and overall ambience. This may include adding a fire pit, installing an outdoor kitchen, or just improving the general landscaped areas around your pool.
- The hardscaped area around your pool is also important, whether it be brick, cement, or another type of material. You will want to make sure that the surrounding pool area is safe. Have chips, cracks, and other safety issues fixed before you start entertaining. If the area around your pool is looking worn, you may want to consider having it resurfaced or completely remodeled.
- Once you have improved the area around your pool, it is time to get the actual pool ready. If you have your pool covered, you will need to carefully remove the cover after hosing off leaves, dirt, and debris that may have collected over the winter. Check the lighting in your pool and replace any lights or covers that are burnt out or damaged. You will need to top the water levels, or if the water levels are really low, refill the pool. Once you have your water levels right, you can add chemicals and test your pool to make sure everything is balanced. Inspect your pool to make sure it is safe and ready for use. If this feels like a lot of work, you may want to hire a company to prepare your pool for you.
