(Newswire.net — March 8, 2016) Stafford, Texas — With summer fast approaching, pool supply Houston specialists Splash Zone offers some timely advice on the best trees to plant around a pool, as well as some varieties that would be better avoided. Considering the many benefits that trees provide in terms of beautifying a poolside area, the tips that the firm provides is of considerable value to homeowners.

Landscaping is a standard part of most poolside design projects, but the issue of what types of trees to plant in the area isn’t always given due consideration. Judicious selection of plants and trees is essential as it significantly affects the appearance of the poolside area, not to mention the enjoyment and satisfaction that people derive from the space. Choosing the ‘right’ types of trees can spell the difference a comfortable and relaxing poolside spot and one that is becomes more and more burdensome over time.

The team of pool specialists at Splash Zone (http://www.splashzonetx.com/) definitely knows a few things about poolside tree selection, having been in the pool design and construction business since 2009. With more than six years of providing a range of quality installation, maintenance, and repair services, the firm has been called upon to provide its own special touch to numerous poolside projects in Huston.

In general, Splash Zone recommends avoiding trees that produce excessive amounts of ‘leaf litter’–i.e. pollen, berries, or any other type of debris that can litter the pool and potentially clog up the filter. It is also advisable to avoid trees that grow extensive root systems, as they can damage the plumbing or the walls of the pool itself.

For those who wish to have the pool area shaded by trees, Splash Zone recommends planting acacia, evergreens such as arbor vitae, cypress, spruce, holly, and magnolia, and even non-fruiting olive trees. For a decidedly tropical look, the firm also suggests citrus or banana trees. Other options for poolside decorating are oleander, (technically a plant), and windmill palms.  Read their full blog article at http://www.splashzonetx.com/best-worst-trees-to-plant-around-a-pool/.
