Hello guys, we have been working with this customer for a while and now they want us to keep up with the new trends... What you guys think about their swimming pool landscape design so far?

Thanks,
Paulo

I have to admit I don't like it. Too sterile and artificial-looking. It needs more relaxed, natural, unclipped plantings.

It seems to me that you're using this site with the thought of a bit of free advertising. Don't do it. If you want garden or design help, fine, but keep it there.

As for your design notions, you have problems. It seems there is little thought for the growth factor that will happen in a few years' time. Things might look fine now, but down the line there will certainly be the need for removal and replanting.

Here are just a few spots you should examine... that is, provided you are doing some gardening.
