Enclosed Courtyard Swimming Pool Idea
Again we see a buffer edge around this courtyard pool made of stepping stones placed on a gravel bed. Besides creating a walkway and buffer between lawn clippings and the swimming pool, it also creates a displacement for water that overflows or is splashed out of the pool. This is a great idea for enclosed courtyards like this. The gravel underneath the stepping stones keeps the water from becoming mud puddles in the lawn.
While this pool landscape is not of a tropical nature, careful attention has been paid to the types of plants used. They are mostly evergreens with few flower petals or trees to drop leaves and debris into the pool.
