The best looking swimming pool landscaping will include plants for softening all the pavers or travertine and tile work. All over Phoenix, Scottsdale and Glendale adding a water feature is becoming increasingly popular. Some people opt for swimming pool fountains. These can be great for ambiance set in pillars along the edge of the pool and give you so many options for styling and materials used in designing them.
As is seen in the pool and spa design in this image, Glendale swimming pool fountains don’t have to look like a fountain at all. We also see a lot of interest around the area for combining Arizona waterfalls to pool landscaping. Natural rocks and rushing water have always complimented each other so nicely.
The finished effect in this pool landscaping design is striking visually and relaxing at the same time. The smooth texture of tile and light texture of stucco look great by themselves in pool design. Adding landscape boulders, some great looking plants and tumbling water… and you have a destination getaway just waiting for you to enjoy it.
While it wouldn’t look at all natural to create a high waterfall on level ground, some height and length of run can accomplish great sound and a realistic setting. This particular pool landscaping design has great contrast between the light color of the pool coping and spa, the pavers pool deck and patio, and the echo of the paver tone in the rocks that form this Arizona waterfall .
Here the swimming pool water is recirculated through the falls and the rocks seem to spill right into the water, as they would in nature. While there is length to the this pool water feature, it doesn’t take up important patio space, because it is worked into the niche behind the spa and curves around to the pool’s edge. Basically, this waterfall design connects a short, rock strewn stream to the falls. The entire length is also running on an incline that disappears into the pool at water level.
The most economical method of adding water features to your Phoenix, Glendale or Scottsdale area yard is by having it installed to circulate pool water instead of having it’s own reservoir. Swimming pool fountains and waterfalls naturally make use of this same water source when adding them to pool landscaping. When designed well, these backyard living water features offer both sound and sight beauty.
