July 2019 was the hottest month on record, and this year we’re ready for it. In the sweltering heat, what better way to cool down than hopping in the pool? Today, we’re listing our favorite backyard pool landscaping ideas for beating the heat and enjoying our outdoor spaces this summer.

The Desert Oasis

The pool, the pavers, the fire pit–everything about this space is wonderful. And all tied together by our Arizona Platinum – Spring grass! With Independence Day coming up, this backyard is fit to entertain day and night. 

The Pup’s Paradise

This pup loves his Nature’s Sod backyard paradise! Do you think he does little doggy jumps off the rock into the pool when it’s hot outside? I’d like to think so.

The Classic Combo

Simplicity triumphs with this beautiful open backyard. A cool pool + Marathon turf = fun in the sun!

The King of the Court

The only thing better than a pool? A pool and a basketball court! Balling up with this install’s Spring Fescue grass is always a win.

The Asymmetric Fit

Rectangular pools not really your speed? No problem! We can shape our turf to fit your space, like we did with this backyard pool landscape using Marathon – Olive grass.And there you have it: our favorite PG installs to give you some backyard pool landscaping ideas! This holiday weekend, keep it cool in the pool while our Cool Yarn grasses keep your turf cooler in the summer sun!
