Poolscaping is a one-of-a-kind handbook overflowing with inspiring ideas and practical advice on how to make your swimming pool the lovely, welcoming centerpiece of your property, whether you are installing a new pool or renovating an existing one. You'll learn how to choose the best spot for the pool and how to design or refurbish the deck and edging that surround it. And you'll find great ideas for dramatic pool lighting (including underwater options); safe and attractive fencing; and spas, furniture, pergolas, and pool houses. Finally, Poolscaping helps you choose the best poolside plants for your landscaping, with a focus on flowers, vines, and shrubs that are low-maintenance and attractive throughout the swimming season.
