How Pool Elevation Can End Up Defining Your Landscape Design

One aspect of pool design and installation that often isn’t considered until it’s too late is elevation.

Are you thinking about installing your very own pool? One aspect of pool design and installation that often isn’t considered until it’s too late is elevation. The elevation of your pool can sometimes dictate the size, shape, or even the possibility of your pool. Hilly areas aren’t ideal for pools, but if you’re dealing with any elevation, it can create some issues. Your pool elevation may even impact drainage, which can have an impact on your landscape design. Plus, the elevation of your pool is going to influence the aesthetics of the rest of your landscape. Let’s take a look at how your pool elevation is related to your landscape design and what kinds of considerations you ought to keep in mind when dealing with a hilly area.


When it comes to your landscape, drainage is always going to be an issue. However, this can become a much more prevalent issue if you install your pool in the wrong spot. Groundwater that isn’t a part of the surface of your yard could already cause the ground to be too unstable for pool installation. You may need to implement some kind of drainage system to help keep your yard properly watered and help a pool feel structurally sound. If you end up installing your pool at the bottom of a slope, this is particularly essential, as you don’t want water to pool up around the base of a pool or end up causing an in-ground pool to overflow. A professional landscaper can help you design your yard with the right amount of drainage measures in place.


Beyond considering actual utility, you’re going to want to think about how everything looks. Even a pool with some elevation should still be appropriately integrated and look complete. Dealing with dense slopes usually means placing your pool at the top of that slope, though knowing what kinds of plants or hardscaping elements to put in place can be a big part of maintaining a landscape that looks right.
