Bit concerned about the bamboo growing around the pools in the above photos....do you realize how much bamboo sheds it leaves?

@ Janet White. Completely agree. I know of quite a few companies that put bamboo around pools to get around pool compliance issues with climbable trees within pool areas, but personally think it would be a disaster to keep the pool clean. Even in-floor pool cleaning struggles with bamboo leaves which is why we don’t use it around pools.

I was quite suprised with the cost to landscape a yard. I don’t think spending that much will guarantee the results. What if you get a dud architect? In any field you always have to do your research and compare quotes. There are lots of shonky businesses that are happy to take your money and not deliver the results. If the results are great, then it’s worth it.
