The right landscaping adds the perfect finishing touch to your swimming pool


A pool is a fantastic addition to any property, especially in the Auckland and North Shore areas to make the most of those tropical summer temperatures.

But, installing a swimming pool is a big investment so you want to feel confident that the pool and surrounding landscaping are well-designed and carefully installed. the best way to do that is by working with an experienced landscaping company.

York Landscaping can work with you from concept and design through to the installation of the pool and the landscaping to anchor it into your overall garden concept. Hard landscaping options include decking, tiling or paving, pergolas or louvred roofs for shade, seating areas and outdoor kitchens, all complemented by appropriate planting for your terrain and your lifestyle.

If you have already arranged a new pool or swim spa and simply need the area landscaped, or you have an existing pool and would like to update the surrounding area, our team can assist. Alternatively, we can arrange everything on your behalf including the sourcing and installation of the new pool.

If you can imagine it, we can help deliver it. Contact us to book a site visit to discuss your plans.

Things to think about when planning your pool


Adding a pool can really enhance your space but with a big investment, you want to plan properly. Things to consider before putting in a pool include:

  • the size and shape of the pool
  • whether your pool will be in-ground or above ground
  • whether the pool will be heated
  • what sort of cover you want to install
  • whether you want any accessories like lighting or waterfall features
  • how you want the pool surround to look - for example, tiling or decking
  • whether you want any kind structure near your pool such as a small pool house or entertaining space
  • what sort of fencing you want
Our team will talk through these areas with you as we design your backyard pool, to ensure the finished area is everything you imagined.


Keep your pool safe and compliant with adequate fencing


Your swimming pool needs to be fenced with safe and council-compliant fencing. Regular inspections are carried out after the fencing is installed to ensure it remains compliant.

A fenced area must cover the immediate area around the pool. It must not include any playground equipment, vehicle or pedestrian access or anything not related to the pool. Trees or anything that a child could climb on for access must not be in the immediate area outside the fencing.

A pool fence must: 

  • be at least 1.2m above the ground 
  • fitted with a latching device that is at least 1.5m above the ground if it is accessible outside the barrier or 1.2m if inside the barrier 
  • have a gap between the bottom of the fence and ground level of not more than 100mm 
  • have gates and doors that open outwards away from the pool area 
  • have gates that are self-closing
You can use existing fencing or buildings as part of your pool fence as long as they are secure and any doors or gates leading to the pool are self-closing.
