Pool landscaping is quite the challenge when you are trying to make it unique and adventurous while making it look aesthetic. A sure fire way to impress your visitors is to give them a light show! The “oohs” and “aahs” will be constant if your pool landscaping has a touch of illumination. Here are the top seven trends for lighting and pool landscaping:
Light up your pathway: If your pool is going to be stunning then why should the path leading up to it be dull? Light up the way to your pool by using pool landscaping lights which enhance the look of your pathway. You can have soft lighting between the plants or on your steps or a few led lights hanging from branches.
Illuminate your landscape: Most of the time you spend around your pool is going to be in the pool landscaping. It is important to light it well and yet maintain a balance between well lit and runway ready. The right kind of lighting for your pool landscaping can make the place the perfect area for a simple hangout or a romantic date.
Brighten your pool: Installing lights inside your pool could brighten up your entire pool landscaping and surrounding. It will ensure a clear look for the pool and also seem like a centralized source of lighting giving a soft glow to the entire set up. This could allow you to swim with ease in your pool even at night.
Fire pits are the right fit: After a good swim in the pool, you might be looking for a resting place where you can relax and still enjoy the serenity of nature. Having a fire pit on your pool landscaping can definitely provide this. A fire pit can make a great place for relaxing and warming up.
Brighten your walls: If you have a stone wall surrounding, lighting up the walls on your pool landscaping can be a great option to set the mood. It can make the place seem inviting and yet beautiful especially at night. It would throw a soft glow all over your walls and make for quite the sight.
More is merrier: Consider adding a lot of small, soft lights in and around your pool landscaping to provide a soft glow all around. Having many small lights instead of a few big ones can make all the difference in the type of look you are trying to give your pool landscaping. It helps to have lights installed in multiple places such as between plants and walls to improve the feel of the place.
Enhance the accessories: Lighting up small plants and maybe placing a few near your sitting area or your other accessories can help enhance the overall look of the pool. There are two benefits to doing this: you can easily see what you are doing, and the place seems carefully planned and well illuminated. The important aspect is to plan with your pool contractor.
