It's nice to swim and cool down during the hot summer (especially morning or late evening swim). I like to have some shades close to the swimming pool, but the problem is we have to find plants that won’t drop leaves and dirty the pool. Landscaping near the pool can provide privacy and beautify the surrounding view, it also increases the property value. Low-maintenance plants need to blend naturally with the environment. Watch out for some needle-bearing evergreen trees that can be messy if the wind blows those leaves into the pool, or any invasive root plant that can damage the swimming pool foundation. Also, never plant something that will attract bees or insects. I like the broad-leaf Holly, evergreen plants, ornamental grass in a large flower pot, coconut tree, or palm tree. I’ve seen some people plants banana trees close to the pool, I guess it works if you live in warm area, and you can enjoy banana fruits next to the pool :-D
