With the hot, humid days upon us, many New Englanders are flocking to outdoors in search of the nearest pool. Whether it’s your private backyard or a public setting, the landscape design around the pool area plays a significant part in creating the overall tone of the environment. From a relaxing spa retreat to an inviting gathering spot for the neighborhood kids, Cataldo Landscaping and Masonry can help build your backyard oasis. Providing expert landscaping in Natick, MA and surrounding towns here’s just a few of the ideas we have for you!
If you’re looking for more than a backyard pool, with a few easy additions, you can create a backyard getaway. With natural stone details such as walkways and focal elements, walking to your pool will have you leaving your stresses at the patio door. Along the way, the incorporation of the simplest green bushes planted in pebbles will help enhance the tone. Once you arrive at the pool area, having décor in natural tones will further the mode of relaxation. Further, the addition of a cascading water element will help to entice the sense while relaxing to the soothing sounds of falling water.
However, if your home tends to be the local go-to for the neighborhood kids, you’ll want to create a much different type of atmosphere. Although masonry work such as patios, walkways, and unique pool sidings are great for any yard, you’ll want to choose family-friendly materials. The incorporation of stones that can withstand whatever life throws at them, literally, as well provide smooth textures is essential. Lastly, the incorporation of kid-friendly plants and areas of grass will encourage the kiddos to lounge about reading a book and making shapes from passing by clouds.
Perhaps your pool area is not only host to kids, but to friends and family as well. If this is the case, the addition of an outdoor kitchen may be the solution you need. Close enough to the pool yet far enough away, you can create the perfect getaway for adults while the kids are still in view. From built-in grills, to bar seating, and firepits, you may have to lock the doors to keep people away!
