The trees you choose should have minimal leaf drop and not be overly messy. You want to avoid cleaning seeds, fruits, flowers, and dead leaves as much as possible. This task can get tedious! Choose trees that have shallow root systems, some tree roots can cause cracks in the concrete and cause problems with plumbing. An alternative is to choose trees that can be moved around in large growing containers. Go with trees that matche the theme of your decor, weather that's tropical, Japanese, Mediterranean, desert oasis, etc. And be sure not to pick a tree that blocks a view you may want to keep once it's fully grown!

Below, is a list of 9 of the best trees to use throughout your pool landscaping. I recommend these trees based on their root system and the minimal amount of shedding in their leaves and fruits. Keep in mind not all tree will grow in all climates so be sure to do your research to make sure they will stay alive. Choose one below that matches the theme of your decor:

  1. Palm Trees
  2. Citrus Trees
  3. Banana Trees
  4. Japanese Maples
  5. False Cyprus
  6. Floss Silk Tree
  7. Fruitless Olive Trees
  8. Ironwood
  9. Palo Verde
