Landscaping isn’t just about pretty flowers and perfectly mowed lawns. Many modern landscapes utilise major construction to create incredible and sophisticated garden areas. Areas such as patios, driveways and pools require a great deal of construction work to be completed. There are many in-depth elements involved in construction work. Specific construction work should only be carried out by a licensed professional with the appropriate skills and experience to render the best results. You should also be aware of any WH&S concerns associated with landscape construction.

Construction plays a huge part in landscaping. It is vital that the construction work carried out in association with your landscaping is completed to the highest standard. The construction element of your landscaping is fundamental as it lays the foundation of your landscape. It is imperative that the construction work is completed by a licensed professional to achieve the desired results.

Cannot recommend Sam and the team from Christies Landscapes more highly. After years of wondering how to best make use of the space in our backyard, I contacted Sam for advice. He listened to our needs, understood how we wanted to use the space and then designed a custom plan that absolutely nailed it first time. For such a large project
Warren Apps
Professional, courteous, responsive and great value is the best way to sum up Sam and the team at Christies. We had a dustbowl in the front yard and we struggled with ideas. We spoke to several other landscapers who where uninspiring and disinterested. We found Sam and all that changed he listened, he provided fresh ideas, was very responsive and accommodating when we sked for changes.
Frank Catanzariti
Our backyard was designed and constructed by Christies Landscapes and what a transformation. Our neighbours have said our backyard looks like a resort! Sam listened to what I wanted, and designed a very inviting and beautiful backyard, better than anything I could have imagined.

Pool Landscaping Canberra

Pool landscaping is everything that goes into the landscaping and decorating of the area around your pool. It includes everything from pouring the concrete and laying the slabs up to finishing the area, including planting foliage and erecting a fence.

At Christie’s Landscapes, our team can help you through every step, from picking plant species to choosing the perfect lighting to accent your pool area. When it comes to pool landscaping, we believe form is just as important as function. We specialise in landscaping designs that are low-maintenance, visually pleasing, and satisfy ACT pool safety legislation.

Contrary to popular belief, you have a lot of agency when it comes to your pool landscaping. You can choose a modern look with flat, hard textures to compliment your home or opt for a more natural look with foliage, plants and grass. Ultimately, how you approach pool landscaping comes down to your design vision.

While it’s essential for your pool area to look great, it also needs to be safe for your family and friends. That’s one of many benefits of working with Christie’s Landscapes – we understand ACT’s pool barrier laws and ensure all every project is fully compliant.

Here at Christie’s Landscapes, our creative landscapers are ready to work with you to bring your vision to life. We sit down with you and consider the style of your yard for a collaborative design process. Using the highest quality plants and materials from a vast network of suppliers, we can find, source and install anything required to bring your project to life.

What Are the Benefits of Pool Landscaping?

There are many benefits of professional pool landscaping, including:
  • Increased property value
  • Added pool safety
  • Improved access
  • Greater privacy
  • Hide pool pumps and filters

What to Consider for Pool Landscaping

One of the most important things to consider for pool landscaping is Canberra’s pool safety laws. ACT pool safety regulations require any pool to be fenced and certified compliant with the Building Act of 2004.

This means the pool fence needs to be:

  • At least 1.2m with non-climbable vertical supports
  • Have no gaps bigger than 100mm
  • A continuous unbroken barrier
  • Made from a rigid material
  • Secured by a manual latch or locking system
  • Not easily accessed by a child

When landscaping a pool area, you’ll also need to ensure there’s at least 1.2m of clearance around the fence. This ensures there are no climbable objects – such as large pots or statues – that a child could use to scale the pool fence.

Outside of legislation, some of the main considerations for pool landscaping are the overarching theme of your home, and the level of maintenance you prefer. You’ll want to match your pool landscaping with the same colours and styles as the rest of your home and garden. Many people wanting a more organic look choose low-maintenance plants for their pool landscaping.
