Follow our helpful tips to ensure you are maintaining a safe and clean pool area!
Be Careful Where You Plant
While you may be attracted to some vegetation for its look, it is important to be mindful of size and shape of a plant or tree if you are planting close to your pool. It is also important to do your research, make sure that the plants and trees that you choose to plant close by your pool are able to survive in this unique environment. If you do not take these precautions, you will likely be doing a lot more cleanup from dead leaves, branches, and other debris. If you are planting a tree in your pool area, make sure you are planting in a safe place. If your tree is going to grow to be large or an odd shape, it could cause a major issue for you in the future.
