We've had an inground pool put in this summer and want to landscape ourselves. I'm looking for ideas for poolside plantings that are clean (no/minimal falling flowers, seeds, leaves, etc).
We had armour stones put in as retaining wall, accent pieces/sitting stones and the ground surrounding the pool deck area is covered with small river rock.
Existing plants are spruce, cedar, boxwood, katsura, tiger-eye sumac, and grasses. We have removed a linden and birch tree (both very messy).
Thinking of adding golden threadleaf cypress, japanese maple and red-leaved wegeila (sp?) for colour, and I'd love some ornamental conifers for visual/textural interest. Any other ideas would be greatly appreciated, or if you could direct me to another forum that might be helpful, thank you!
