When you live in Florida, having a pool is a must. But if you want to make the most of the Floridian summer sun, you’ll need a pool that invites you in and around it, day after day.

If you want an oasis-like pool fit for a tropical paradise, then check out these landscaping tips that’ll help you get a head start on those long summer days.

1. Choose a Great Landscaping Company

Landscapers are the creative type, and it’s their job to make your garden a work of art. Look for a company with great credentials and a proven portfolio so you can check out their previous work.

You’ll need to work closely with your landscapers to design and create the perfect look for your garden. So pick an experienced company you can trust, and one that has a good reputation.

2. Create Contrast

To break up the colors in your garden and make your pool stand out, you’ll need to create a contrast between each landscaping element.

For example, a blue pool directly beside green grass can look too busy and cluttered. Break up the color with some white stone edging, however, and you’ve got an instant contrast that’ll make your pool pop.

3. Use Tropical Flora and Fawna

Trees with long, broad leaves like banana trees, look beautifully tropical and give you the vacation feel you’re after.

A great Florida landscaping tip to add color to your poolside is to use flowers like hibiscus and birds of paradise. These tropical flowers thrive on the vast amounts of sunlight the Sunshine State provides and will make you feel a million miles away, from the comfort of your own home.

4. Add Accessible Seating

Not everyone wants to be in the pool all day long, so add seating near and around the pool to cater to that.

Having chairs or even built-in benches closeby means you have the option of swimming or chatting with your family while you do it. And alfresco dining will come into its own when you have a pool to enjoy your food beside.

5. Install Mood Lighting

For romantic night-time swims, or even some dinnertime dining, pool lighting will take the experience to another level. And it also makes your poolside much safer.

Add lighting in and amongst your flowerbeds for a low-lit splash of color on your evening adventure. And lighting around the pool itself will highlight its beauty and give your home that true vacation feel.

Adding solar-powered lighting around your pool means you’ll be enjoying the Florida sun long after it’s set for the day.
