Landscape Ideas for Swim Spas: Poynter Landscape Creates Your Backyard Oasis

Dive right into luxury and relaxation right in your own backyard with the following landscape ideas from your own outdoor pros:

  • Create a Natural Sanctuary With Native Plants
  • With help from our gardening experts, get familiar with the rich variety of native plant species that can thrive in the local climate with minimal maintenance. Incorporating native plants around your swim spa not only adds beauty and character but also helps support local ecosystems. Consider the following plants for bursts of color, as well as to attract pollinators:

  • Design a Functional Space With Multi-Level Decking or Patio
  • Enhance the functionality and aesthetics of your swim spa area with multi-level decking or patio. Incorporate different levels to create designated spaces for outdoor cooking/dining, sunbathing, or lounging. Choose durable, low-maintenance decking or patio materials like composite, PVC, or cobblestone or limestone pavers that can withstand our fluctuating weather conditions.

  • Add the Right Water Features:
  • Surround your swim spa with complementary water features to amplify the soothing ambiance. Whether you add a small fountain or a cascading waterfall, the soothing sound of trickling water can create a serene atmosphere and drown out ambient noise, boosting your relaxation.

  • Position Outdoor Lighting for Ambiance & Safety
  • Extend the party in your swim spa area into the evening and late-night hours with carefully planned and placed outdoor lighting. Our lighting experts will help incorporate soft, ambient lighting around the parameter of the spa to create a cozy atmosphere. We can also help ensure pathways and steps are well-lit for safety and easy navigation, especially the later it gets.

  • Have Our Experts Design Privacy with Purpose
  • Privacy is essential for creating a relaxing atmosphere around your swim spa. Our outdoor experts can install tall evergreen trees or shrubs to create a strategic natural barrier. In addition to adding trellises with climbing plants like jasmine or clematis, the following are great options for creating a green screen offering constant privacy:

  • Get Comfortable With Cozy Seating & Relaxation Zones
  • Let our outdoor design professionals integrate comfortable seating options and relaxation zones around your swim spa area to encourage lounging and socializing. They’ll help you consider adding comfort options – like built-in benches with plush cushions or hammocks – for ultimate relaxation. Install a pergola or pavilion to provide shade during sunny days and shelter from light rain.

  • Add Fire Features for the Best in Year-Round Enjoyment
  • Extend the usability of your swim spa well into the cooler months by incorporating an outdoor fireplace or fire pit. These fire features can create a cozy focal point and provide warmth during chilly evenings.
