Compliment Your Swimming Pool with a Vegetable Garden

Swimming pool design

Just imagine diving into your lagoon-like swimming pool and feeling the warm sun on your back as you swim your daily laps!  Incorporating your fitness routine at home is so easy when you have a California Pools swimming pool in your backyard. Today, we are so fortunate to be aware of the many health benefits of staying fit.  As we all know, it takes more than exercising to truly take care of our bodies, and that’s why the foods we eat are crucial to our overall health. At California Pools, we take pride in educating ourselves in living a healthy lifestyle. So not only do we cherish the convenience of stepping out our patio doors and squeezing in a quick work out in the pool, but we also cherish learning new ways to nourish our bodies from within.  Wouldn’t it be great to have your own version of a fresh farmers market in your backyard?  Well, we do too! So, we suggest adding some tower gardens to your backyard swimming pool design, so you have fresh fruits and vegetables to choose from and enjoy!

We recently spoke with Elizabeth Bellamy, our artistic director of the South San Diego office, who regularly designs tower gardens into their swimming pool designs. She said the majority of their clients “were asking for vegetable gardens, but often didn’t have the space in a small backyard.”  Elizabeth recommends growing your vegetables vertically! "Save on space in your yard with the ease and convenience of having tower gardens!"  She said, “With three of them you can stagger the harvest and have vegetables always accessible seasonally, for less than a quarter of the space and a quarter of the water that in ground or raised bed planters use.”

According to the Tower Garden website,, “Good health starts with good habits, like eating wholesome foods. And with Tower Garden, you can easily grow your own fresh, nutrient-rich food virtually anywhere, year-round, without soil.”  The website is very informative and helpful when researching the benefits of these tower gardens and we highly recommend browsing yourself. “Tower Garden, a vertical, aeroponic growing system, allows you to grow up to 20 vegetables, herbs, fruits and flowers in less than three square feet- indoors or out.  So, it’s the perfect companion in your journey toward healthy living.”

As we continue our journey of blending fitness, nutrition, and a happy and healthy lifestyle, we encourage you to do the same! The benefits of enjoying a crisp salad, or some delicious veggie sticks as you sit in your patio chairs poolside with your family and friends is truly priceless.  Making fun and healthy memories is what living life is all about!  So, if you haven’t already, schedule your consultation with California Pools and be sure to add tower gardens to your backyard design! You will love your garden inspired backyard oasis!
