The pool: the center of your yard
By its imposing volume, a swimming pool greatly modifies the exterior landscape of your residence. It is in fact the centerpiece around which all the landscaping will be thought out. Whether it’s an in-ground pool or an above-ground pool: the outline, the materials and the style chosen to enhance it will be very important to the success of your project.
The pool is often the heart of your yard. We bathe there, we train there, we escape there, we rest there, we refresh ourselves there alone, in couple, between friends, in family and with the children. The landscaping around the swimming pool must therefore offer a perfect combination of utility and aesthetics.

The pool and landscaping: an inseparable duo
The swimming pool is an element of entertainment around which the life in your backyard unfolds. The landscape architect will know how to design a pleasant, practical and safe environment. Its role is to offer a harmonious and aesthetic appearance of the space while making the edge of the pool very practical and welcoming.
Before you start, assess your needs
Think about what you want and how you will use the space around the pool.
Need a spot of shade or relax?
In ground, semi-in ground or above-ground pool?
Although the various pool models serve the same purpose, their characteristics will influence our approach and our proposals. No matter what type of pool you have or want to install, you will need to combine the layout around your pool with style, colors, textures, vegetation and a touch of conviviality.

CONVIVIALITY AND INTIMACY
Privacy is often at issue with above ground pools. That said, several design elements can protect you from the gaze of neighbors. For a successful layout around a swimming pool, space must be maximized and comfort and conviviality prioritized.
Pergola, gazebo, terrace and rest area can all be oriented to better enjoy the climate, an aperitif by the water or meals with family and friends.

CHOOSING: THE FURNISHING STYLE
You need to define the style of landscaping you want to offer your yard: contemporary, country, refined, modern, zen?
By defining the style of your yard, you will see that several elements of your layout can be chosen. The choices will be available to you according to the atmosphere you want and according to your preferences for a type of material, a fence, the choice of plants, the installation of lights, waterfalls, fountain, basin or pond. .
For a contemporary backyard with a unique atmosphere that evokes urban escape , we have created a relaxation area with a fireplace area reminiscent of happy hour evenings with friends. The mixture of textures is noticeable by the use of several inert materials; Umbriano slabs, exotic Brazilian wood and crowning in natural sandstone.
The integration of soft, amber landscape lighting accentuates the friendly and warm side of the layout, which allows you to enjoy the courtyard all evening long.
Outdoor fireplace area with wooden chairs
Whether you want a garden or not, you will definitely need to use plants for the layout of your swimming pool. Those placed near your pool should tolerate salt and chlorine. Water overflows are common when children and adults have fun while swimming.
Depending on the style and level of care you want, you can opt for a sturdy and hardy layout, or choose plants that will require a little more love and attention.
Low walls, flower boxes, trees, shrubs and vegetable gardens can all contribute to a natural and manicured ambiance.
