5 Landscaping Ideas For Your Swimming Pool

5 Landscaping Ideas For Your Swimming Pool

When you think of summer days spent around the swimming pool, crystal-clear waters and lush greenery are two things that come to mind. Unfortunately, natural grass is not always a team player when it comes to ensuring your space looks visually striking, requiring endless weekends and harsh chemicals to ensure it remains in tip-top shape around the year. 

Integrating artificial grass around your swimming pool is the perfect way to create an atmosphere that’s functional and easy to maintain while providing a picture-perfect poolside area that seamlessly blends with your space. 

Not sure where to start? Here are a few landscaping ideas with artificial grass around your swimming pool: 

Create a Tropical Oasis

If you’d love to enjoy a version of summer all year round, nothing does that quite like creating your interpretation of a tropical paradise. Use artificial grass as the foundation; it remains lush year-round, creating a vibrant and summery atmosphere for your pool area, even in winter. Add a few of your favourite tropical plants, such as ferns and palm trees, to enhance the feeling of being in a tropical oasis. Take it a step further and add a few tiki torches, a thatched-roof cabana for shade and your favourite lounge chairs.

A Zen-Inspired Pool Area  

Artificial grass can be the perfect foundation for a tranquil zen garden, especially around your swimming pool. Add to the ambience by integrating modern hardscape elements such as large concrete pavers, sleek stepping stones, or a minimalistic deck surrounding your pool. Make sure to stick to a limited and subdued colour palette like whites, greys and earthy tones, which work well with minimalist designs and add to the “zen” feeling you’re trying to create. Synthetic turf provides a soft and inviting surface for meditation or yoga sessions around the pool, making it an ideal space for unwinding and escaping after a long day before jumping in the pool. 

Modern Elegance 

Opt for a sleek and contemporary design using artificial grass to frame the pool area. Combine the grass with clean lines and geometric shapes in your furniture and hardscape elements. Diamond or checkerboard patterns are two popular designs that will add an eye-catching element to your outdoor space while also adding a fun and modern motif. Add potted plants with minimalist designs to maintain the contemporary aesthetic. This design is a great way to create a sophisticated and stylish atmosphere around your pool.

Family-Friendly Fun Zone

A swimming pool is not only a great way to cool down during the blistering summer months, but it’s also a fantastic way to spend quality time with the family. Thankfully, artificial grass provides a durable, slip-resistant surface that ensures you’ll remain worry-free while the kids spend time around the pool. Add to the fun by utilising synthetic turf’s soft surface by creating designated play zones that allow the kids to play comfortably. You can combine artificial grass with a few well-placed stepping stones or design a pathway to ensure safety and easy access to the pool.

Add a Cabana

Take your poolside experience to new heights with an elevated cabana. The lush appearance of artificial grass is a perfect addition to any structure that provides a shady retreat from the sun. Synthetic turf serves as plush flooring, enhancing the cabana’s aesthetic appeal while providing a soft and cool surface for bare feet. Surround the cabana with sleek, modern furnishings and subtle lighting to create an intimate and inviting atmosphere.

The Benefits of Artificial Grass Around Your Swimming Pool 

There are endless benefits to installing artificial grass, but how does this relate to your swimming pool area? Here are a few of our favourite benefits

  • It’s a Safe Option: Whether your kids don’t take “no” for an answer when running about the pool, or you’re worried about the tripping hazard when it comes to wet feet, you can rest assured that you’ll have a slip-resistant surface when stepping out of the pool. It also offers a soft and lush surface when compared to grass, ensuring minimal scrapes and cuts. 


  • No More Hopping Around: Getting out of the swimming pool on a sweltering summer’s day can be a dangerous task when you have concrete around your pool area. You can avoid stepping onto scorching concrete with artificial grass installed as it provides a soft and cool surface.


  • It’s Durable: Artificial grass is designed to withstand various weather conditions, including exposure to sunlight, UV rays and chlorine water. It doesn’t fade, and it remains lush and green throughout the year thanks to its UV-resistant properties.
