Even the most creative and talented residential designers can be challenged by landscape design. Unlike a living room, kitchen or bedroom, a back yard presents a unique set of circumstances, especially when plans include assimilating design with a pool.

Landscape design consideration includes structures, plants, hardscapes, water usage, drainage and much more. Simply put, implementing a landscape plan can be daunting.

California Pools has installed thousands of pools throughout the country and countless landscaping plans. Let our experience and expertise help you create the backyard of your dreams.

Landscape Budget

Just as with interior design and remodeling projects, having a rough idea of what you want to spend will be extremely beneficial in the planning process. Not only will this give us a starting point and a helpful set of parameters, but will also save frustration down the road.

You don't want to fall in love with sketches of rock waterfalls and lush landscape, only to find out they're beyond your budget. With a target cost in hand, the experienced landscape professionals at California Pools can also suggest creative solutions that may never have come into play otherwise, helping you stretch your budget to get the most for your backyard investment.


Landscape Design

Our first goal will be to assist in determining a preferred landscaping style and maintenance level.

Do you prefer formal gardens or a wilder, more free-form look?
Do you want plants that thrive under benign neglect, or are you willing to take on varieties that need a lot of care and attention?
Will you need paths, pavers or other hardscaping?
How do you prefer to water?

Of course, pool maintenance adds additional considerations. A little coaching and creative influence will help fine-tune your options and help us provide you with a plan you’ll enjoy for many years to come.

Landscape Maintenance Plan

Once our landscape crew has packed up their spades and shovels, we’ll help you in keeping your yard in tiptop shape by providing you with a landscaping maintenance plan.

Whether you’re planning on maintaining your new yard yourself, or hiring a landscape maintenance company, an outline of what tasks to prepare for, as well as when and how often to do them will be very helpful.
