    1. Incorporate Landscape Lighting

    Consider using landscape lighting around your backyard pool by hanging strands of string lights, such as white LED Christmas lights, as this can be a great way to create ambiance for nighttime swims without driving up your energy bill. When hanging string lighting near the pool, consider setting them up against the walls of the pool enclosure or on the house to keep them as far away from the water as possible. This will make the process faster and will reduce the risk of electric shock.

    2. Add a Backyard Firepit

    Including a backyard firepit on the pool patio is another great option for adding additional light and ambiance to your backyard space. By adding in a firepit, you will also be providing a heat source that can help keep guests comfortable when swimming during a chilly evening.

    3. Build a Stone Walkway

    If the pool in your backyard is separated from the house by a patch of grass, consider building a stone walkway that guests can use to go back and forth from the pool. Make sure to choose stone materials that will not become slippery when wet, as well as materials that will match the aesthetic of the pool deck.

    4. Add Accent Plants

    One of the easiest ways to brighten up a backyard pool patio is to incorporate poolside plants. Make sure to choose plants that add lush textures and vibrant splashes of colour to provide your pool with a calming and peaceful feel. Consider choosing plants that love being in the sun and do not shed a lot of leaves, as they are low maintenance and will produce the least amount of debris.

    5. Plant Privacy Hedges

    If you are wanting to add a higher level of privacy to your pool but do not want to build a solid fence that blocks out the light, making a privacy wall out of foliage can provide the perfect mix of decor and privacy. Make sure to select trees or shrubs that will provide enough foliage to create a solid appearance.
