For convenience around swimming pools, nothing beats a closed gazebo in which you can change into or out of your clothes and relax in the shade. Outdoor furniture also affords convenience around your swimming pool, as do barbecue equipment and outdoor furnaces. A full outdoor kitchen may be in your sights if you are more upscale.

Patios or pool decks provide not only beauty, but safety for swimming pool areas. Climbing out of the water, you can be assured of a slip-resistant surface to land on with a scarred concrete patio. If you opt for a brick patio instead, be sure to keep the surface of the bricks rough (you will have to clean moss off the bricks periodically).

Privacy, safety, beauty, and convenience are some of the considerations to keep in mind when landscaping around swimming pools. While discussing all of these factors below, let's focus on choices for mess-free plants. The best plants to grow near a pool will be those that lend the area a special charm and that cause you little inconvenience.

Most notably, a couple of plants with thorns are included on the list, simply because they are relatively mess-free (and furnish architectural beauty). But avoid growing thorny plants in areas where you will be walking (for example, spots where you will be entering or exiting from the pool), so that you will not have to worry about getting jabbed by sharp thorns. Instead, grow them on a side of a large pool where human activity is kept at a minimum. They are not suitable for small pools (where space is at a premium).

Fencing around swimming pools is a must when small children are present, for the purpose of safety. The right fence design can also offer you privacy. If you do not like the look of a fence, soften it by training vines to grow over it; the vines will enhance privacy, to boot, on types of fences that do not offer a solid barrier. Another safety feature around pools is outdoor lighting.

I tend to avoid anything with a lot of thorns (barberry, pyracantha, hawthorne) or sharp/spiky foliage (hollies, junipers). Certain trees, like magnolias, can be very messy and will drop leaves and litter all season long, making it more difficult to keep water clean. I also keep my summer-flowering plants a little farther away from the pool to discourage bees from bothering the swimmers.

If you are using solar lights around your pool, make sure they get direct sunlight. Before adding the light to the soil, loosen it up with a small shovel and gently insert the light into the soft soil. Most solar lights have plastic stems so you don’t want them to break when adding them.
