Anything within the agave, aloe, or yucca family is perfect for planting outside around your pool area, because they need very little maintenance in order to flourish, and they absolutely love the heat.

Obviously, your swimming pool is going to be built in a location of great sun exposure, so putting plants like that around your fencing gives the best opportunity to soak up those rays and grow beautifully.

Small Palms

Smaller version of palm trees like cycads and sago palms are great for a garden swimming pool area because they bring a hint of the beach to your home without being over large.

They are big enough to disguise some of your fencing, and they possess an aesthetic that brings some pleasing tropical flare to your environment.

Fruitless Olive Tree

A fruitless olive tree might seem like a weird choice, but there is good reason to include in your pool landscape.

This kind of tree will take up some good room to hide your pool fencing, and it also has the double benefit of being a plant that has very low leaf litter.
