To add landscaping around tools, use plenty of plants, but look for low-maintenance plants. Avoid fruit trees or plants that bear fruit, as they attract bees and other insects.
When choosing plants for a swimming pool area, choose large plants that can double as a privacy wall. Look for plants that don’t require a lot of upkeep and are drought-tolerant if you live somewhere that doesn’t get a lot of rain. Avoid plants with leaves that fall easily, as well as needle-bearing trees. Another good idea is to have a deck around the pool area and decorate it with container plants and potted flowers.
