The luxury pool, once thought to only be found in exclusive resorts, is now becoming more and more common in the backyards of homeowners like yourself. When one builds a luxury pool they need to have the landscape to match, which is why we are sharing some neat landscaping designs and ideas that you may want to incorporate into your own backyard.

1. Italian Villa

Boldly colored furniture, pergolas and a pizza oven all help create the atmosphere of a classic Italian villa. Include brightly colored urns and pots, and sprinkle in punches of color with vividly colored flowers in poolside flower beds.

2. Roman Arches

With Grecian and Tuscan-style pools growing in popularity, these stately and striking Roman arches – particularly those that double as a water feature that rain a constant thin stream of water over bathers – are sure to grow in popularity. They can be built to create a wall-like effect or serve as a divide between the pool and spa.

3. Raised Patio

Many landscaping designs feature varying levels and drops, with one of our favorite being a raised patio. Elevated anywhere to a foot or more above the surface of the pool, this gives loungers a better vantage point over the pool and garden.

4. Caves and Grottos

For those looking to create the ultimate tropical aquatic retreat, a cave or grotto is a must have. Add in a water fall that spills over the entryway, and you have yourself the perfect secret hideaway.

5. Hand Cut Stone Patios

For that truly custom look, pool owners now have the option of choosing hand cut stone to build their perfect patio with. Choose from varying shades of color from the same color family to create a stunning visual effect.

6. Stacked Stone Planter Boxes

Rather than settle for the traditional wooden planter box, opt to have long lasting stacked stone planter boxes installed poolside and around the patio. Homeowners can choose from a number of stone varieties, shades and shapes to suit the tone and architecture of their home and garden.


7. Lush Backdrops

While many more contemporary pools may feature an endless stretch of patio space, a lush green backdrop feature that runs alongside one edge of the pool is a great way to create your own gorgeous view.
