We have a cement patio & the pool will be just off that..then there is an arbor beyond that leading to a large pond w/dock. I HAD a picket fence on either side of the arbor, but have taken it down. So I need ideas on how to bring all areas together (especially around the pool) that will be LOW maintenance, ‘natural & soft’ looking!

Try to avoid long straight lines in you landscape. Slope or terrace the yard leading to the pond. Add flower or shrub beds that lead from the pool down to the pond to tie the two sides of the landscape together naturally. Make a path from the edge of the pool to the pond that is lined with cobble stones. You can have a fence around either, but don’t let it end abruptly. Taper the ends and elongate the lines with shrub or flower beds. Add rocks to the landscape.

Try some or all of these suggestions. Sketch it out to see how it looks from a bird’s eye view. Play around and have fun. You really could do just about anything
