Lanscaping Ideas Around Deck
I am looking for some ideas of how to landscape an area around our deck and pool. I've designated the area with a red circle in the aerial photo below.
Basically, I'm looking to form beds now (I'm receiving a truckload of mulch tomorrow) and then fill them in with shrubs and/or perennials later. The blue circle designates an area where I'll make a firepit. Here are some more pictures of the area:
Deck - facing toward back of yard (east). Middle of deck lattice are on tracks for access under deck.:
Deck stairs - facing southeast:
South lot line - area between and side of yard. Three beautybushes and three red-twig dogwoods are planted.
Another picture os south lot line. This one shows the area that will have a firepit in the foreground. Firepit will be made with rocks and will have gravel or sand surrounding it.
Picture facing southeast:
Right now I am thinking of surrounding the pool filter with gravel and then the rest of the area between the pool and fence with with mulch.Thanks in advance!
