    The large tree is a Nyssa sylvatica (Black tupelo). The red autumn foliage is stunning.

Is decking or paving included? Pools don’t just sit in the ground surrounded by grass – they need to have a pool surround which could be timber decking, stone, tiles or a concrete slab. Whatever the finish is, you need to find out if it’s included in the pool quote you’ve been given. The pool surround material will have a huge visual impact on your backyard, so consider your choices carefully and think about whether it can or should include built-in seating or sunbeds.Designing a small-space pool

1. Know your yardStudy the way water is dispersed post-storm. If your topsoil remains sodden or your groundwater is high, it’s likely you’ll need additional drainage to help water disperse after heavy rains. If you have clay soil, add topsoil or compost on a semi-regular basis to enrich it and give the water something to soak into.

STEP 4: Make it levelAlthough lawns don’t have to be flat the surface needs to be even so there aren’t hollows and bumps everywhere. For new grass areas, use a purpose-built grader (or make your own), then rake the surface. Leave to settle for a week or so, then regrade. Very soft soil may need compacting either by treading or rolling when damp. If repairing the garden, you can fill any odd hollows, and use a shovel to remove the tops and level noticeable bumps, before adding new grass (the same type as the remaining garden) to these patches.

4. A lush landscape in SydneyHere we find a garden that uses trees to create a rich and secluded outdoor space that is perfect for entertaining. In a garden like this, you can easily forget about everything going on outside your four walls.
