Enjoying a warm and sunny day around a backyard pool is part of many homeowner’s dream for ultimate relaxation. However, it is hard to lounge with family and friends with the possible prying eye of a passerby or neighbor. Smart pool landscaping can seal your pool off from any on-lookers and help you create a private environment for your next get-together.

To create a contained environment, homeowners may opt for building a newer fence around their property. However, installing a larger and taller fence around your backyard is not always feasible. Luckily, there are a few more doable options that can even enhance your pool’s design.

Many pool enthusiasts opt for adding vegetation to their design. This creates a more natural and aesthetically pleasing addition to a layout. There are a wide variety of arrangements of different trees, bushes and flowers that can give life and privacy to your backyard.

An appropriate addition can be different types of reasonably sized spruce trees. These trees can grow wide for sizeable coverage. They are also hardy trees that can adapt to weather and sunlight conditions. With their large width they provide an environmentally conscious barrier that lasts for years to come.

Another smart pool landscaping choice is medium-sized hedges. Many are low-maintenance and can survive harsher weather conditions year around. They can be trimmed to different heights and shaped to fit your layout.

Other pool owners opt to skip out on plant maintenance all-together. There are a number of pool screens available online. However, they are typically smaller and many must purchase a number of screens to fully enclose their pool.

That is why hiring professional to help you build your pool and backyard layout can provide the best results in the long run. Consider a company with years in pool landscaping and pool design experience to help you achieve the privacy you require for a care-free dip in the pool for you and all your guests.

I would just like to thank GSM Builders. My husband and I like our pool that has just been remodeled. While we thought we would have to build a new pool, Greg saved us on time and money. We added a spa and water features to our dated pool. It looks great! I would highly recommend Greg and his team. Great work!

Dean Miller

When my parents were deciding to move Florida, the first thing I thought of was "you'd better buy a house with a pool." They did, but it was in major need of repairs. We called Greg and his team and they helped us remodel the pool and the entire area around it! It's like their own personal tropical escape in their backyard. He was fast, friendly, and gave us a fair price! I highly recommend Greg for all of your pool remodeling needs!

We had gone to three different pool builders. One of them never came back with a quote. The other quoted us for a pool that was on the smaller side. GSM quoted us for a larger pool and showed us a computer rendition of what it would look ..
