3 Trendy Poolside Landscape Design Ideas for Your Northwest Indiana Backyard


A pool might already make waves, but as a home or property owner in Northwest Indiana, you may be looking for a little more than that. What if your poolside design could set trends with its own unique aesthetic? Here are three trendy poolside landscape design ideas for your backyard:


Begin with the Pool Deck

Pool deck design can upgrade the look of your overall poolside aesthetic with just a few well-made choices. Of course there are practical things to consider first. As it will often be wet from inevitable splashing, the surface should be non-slip. Try to avoid using coping materials that will be abrasive. Both these things lessen the chance of injury to you or loved ones while enjoying your pool. Materials that won’t be damaged by salts or pool chlorine are also recommended. Pool decks constructed with Unilock products offer safety and durability every time.

When it comes to the design, there are a variety of elite pavers to choose from that will elevate the overall look and feel of your poolside area. Available in Smoke Shale, Dawn Mist/Pebble Taupe, Pebble Taupe, and Dawn Mist, Richcliff can be one of the choices at the top of your list. These pavers radiate elegance. Their innovative Enduracolor Plus Architectural Finish, combined with standout surface texture derived from careful casting of hundreds of natural stone surface textures, delivers a high-quality and long-lasting pool deck.

For a paver with a stunning granite appearance, consider Umbriano pavers as another high-end alternative.

Water on Water

Your Northwest Indiana backyard can make people envious in the best way possible with additional water features for your poolside landscape. Unilock walls and verticals give you the opportunity to have fountains, waterfalls, hot tubs, and other sought after water features installed that will match the wall and paver style of your hardscape. The design of these features can be simple or intricate, but whatever you choose you’ll be increasing the value of your poolside landscape from both creative and financial perspectives with the help of Unilock wall units.

Integrate water features using vertical systems, such as Rivercrest Wall, which emulates the hearty look of natural stone in the colors of Buff and Coastal Slate. You can opt instead for modernity and a clean edge with Lineo Dimensional Stone in Sierra, Granite, or Sandalwood. Added to the beauty that a new water feature can bring to your poolside, is the sound of cascading water, which promotes relaxation and ambience.


Consider Coping

Having the right coping installed around your pool edge can make sure that your pool is safe and a pleasurable to use. Coping can also help to add another layer of brilliant design. Unilock products afford you the versatility you seek when looking for a coping to accent your poolside landscape. Brussels Fullnose and Fullnose Edger answers the need for a smooth edge with rounded style. These coping units come in a standard size with antiqued finish, and are also ideal for outdoor seating, walls, steps, and fire pit coping needs to name a few.

With this product you have a range of different colors to choose from. Combine with a paver and pattern layout of your choice, to really make all your poolside landscape elements stand out.
