In-ground pools use to have one or two large lights embedded into the wall that light up the water for nighttime swimming, one in the deep end and one in the shallow end of the pool. Above-ground pools get a spot or floodlight mounted to a tree or on the house. While those built-in lights are still popular, there have been significant changes to pool lighting over the years.
Every courtyard garden has a sense of enclosure. Four walls may actually be present, or they may be implied by a hedge or section of lattice blanketed with vines. Some courtyard walls have windows cut into them to frame neighboring views—and to give the space a feeling of openness. This is especially important in very small courtyards.
A water feature belongs in every courtyard garden—just be sure to choose one scale to the space. A fountain that’s too large and noisy can easily overpower conversation in a small space, while a small wall fountain doesn’t take up square footage and has a gentle trickling sound.
There are plenty of extras you can add to your pool such as waterfalls, slides, diving boards and swim-up bars, among other things, but you have to consider the added cost and the aesthetic as well. Sure, they might be fun at a water park or resort, but you have to think about the big picture. What might have seemed like a good idea at the time may turn out to be a detractor when you or your kids tire of them.
