Poolside Beauty

Landscaping around pools requires a unique approach because of the extreme temperatures, heat reflection and sun. As a botanist, I select plants that are appropriate and can tolerate the conditions, as well as those that soften the hardscape, add fragrant flowers and a long season of bloom. Design should draw your eye to the reflecting light and colors echoing across the water.
