Somewhere along the way, you might have decided to put a pool in the backyard. Once you got the concrete poured and the water temperature squared away, you might have noticed that the area around the pool was a bit barren. Don’t worry, because there are plenty of pool-friendly plants that you can install to liven it up again and create an outdoor space you’ll love.
Succulents are a great option to plant. They require minimal watering, and they won’t be bothered by the chlorine in the water should someone splash them. You can pick from aloe, agave, yucca, and even haworthia, which are also capable of thriving in our climate.
