Landscaping allows the homeowner to tie their hardscape deck and pool features with the rest of their property. Choosing nice backyard pool landscaping ideas that complements your pool creates a backyard oasis that you can enjoy for many years. There are several backyard pool landscaping ideas. And strategically placed rocks are one of the best of backyard pool landscaping ideas, particularly if you’ve “gone natural” with the look of your pool and incorporated natural rock or stone into the trim. Rocks also can shelter low-maintenance “rock garden” succulents like senecio serpens, kalanchoe thyrsiflora, purple aeonium, aeonium sunburst, golden sedum or echeveria geranium.
