Its branches are trained grow out to either side, forming a lush wall.

One more thing you should consider to insure your safety is non-slippery tiling where you get out of the pool.
Spending time near your swimming pool is luxurious. It is even more luxurious if you can entertain your friends at a place specially designed for this purpose. So, when planning the design of your recreation zone think of how many guests you would like to have there at anyone time.
Finally, the design of your swimming pool area should harmonize with the overall architectural style of your home. If you plan to renovate your house do not forget to update the style of your recreation area.
