Just about the only thing I miss from our old house, is the pool. We only had the pool for 2 years before we sold up and moved to our Pen Y Llechwedd, and it really was the most used part of our home. Our youngest could barely swim before we put it in, once in though, he would regularly become a wrinkly old man. As this first stage of our home is not long from being finished, we have started talking about what we would like to do with our back yard. A pool is top of the list, and here is some of the inspiration we were looking at over the weekend.
Our initial thoughts were for a formal pool and garden, straight lines and formal plantings.
With time living in our space, we have come to feel that the pool would actually be better in a lagoon style, typical of a Queensland back yard. We have a good planting of tropical plants, and we really would prefer not to have to remove these. Our inspiration now looks a little more like this..
Our next step is to have a landscape designer come to our home and help us draw up some plans, from there we can begin.
Do you have a pool? Any tips you could share?
