Transform Your Backyard Pool into Your Personal Oasis

Summer is almost here, and those hot days are bound to leave us all dreaming of spending time by the poolside. There are many options when it comes to pool shapes, sizes and landscaping. The right type of landscaping can transform your backyard into your personal oasis. You may want to go with a naturalistic landscape and include boulders and even small waterfalls into your pool setup. You can also place potted plants around the pool area and set up a barrier of evergreens or shrubs around the pool for privacy. For more pool inspiration, check out these homes.
