Lawn care is one of those things you don’t really think about until you’re scooping leaves, acorns, and grass clippings out of your nice, clean pool. You can make your life a lot easier with a little extra planning when it comes to your lawn maintenance and you pool. Plan ahead with these tips for lawn care around your above-ground pool.
Mowing the lawn around your above-ground pool is an absolute necessity but needs to be done carefully. You don’t want to sling any rocks or grass clippings toward the side of your pool. You could easily damage or dent the pool wall of your above-ground pool or damage your liner or filter if debris made it into the actual water. You can decrease the chances of this happening by mindfully mowing your yard. Make sure to pick up and remove any large rocks or sticks from your yard before mowing. And also be sure to mow so that your clippings blow away from the pool. Just a little extra thought makes lawn care around your above-ground pool a breeze.
Rock and Stone
One easy solution to caring for the lawn around your above-ground pool is to simply cover it. One of the best materials to place around your above-ground pool is rock or stone. The maintenance is incredibly easy, but you do want to make sure to remove the grass and weeds before installing your rock. Also, remember to place a weed barrier fabric underneath your rocks to keep weeds from growing up through them.
Rocks and stone are a functional solution to help you care for the lawn around your pool. They provide a clean and crisp look, and you can manage the lawn around your pool better because of the rocks. The rocks can provide a clean landscaping barrier that is easier to mow around when the time comes, and it’s also really hard to track rocks or pebbles onto a pool deck with wet feet.
Choosing the perfect plants can make or break you when it comes to lawn care around your above-ground pool. You want to choose plants that are beautiful but don’t add extra work to your maintenance routine. Think of evergreen trees that rarely shed leaves or needles. These trees look great and can also provide some great privacy while adding very little effort to your lawn care routine.
Also, consider planters for added variety and movability if you like to change things up every once in a while. Just avoid flowering plants that will drop petals into your pool and add more work for you.
Lawn care around your above-ground pool doesn’t have to be complicated or frustrating. You can save yourself time and hassle by just planning ahead. Choose the right plants and the right mowing path and you’ll be all set.
