How to Create Privacy at the Pool that Looks Amazing

Summertime means it’s pool time! As temperatures get hotter, more and more people flock to the pool, hoping to soak up every ray of sunshine. But just because your guests are at the pool doesn’t mean they need to share the experience with everyone. Forget the old cinderblock wall dividers–modern artificial plants and flowers provide plenty of options for privacy screens that are both functional and beautiful. Here are three privacy plants to get your creative juices flowing.

Artificial Privacy Hedges

Provide complete privacy and a dose of greenery with an artificial hedge planter. Made of lifelike, lush leaves, these artificial boxwood hedges hide everything from your neighbor and can provide a luxurious pool area for your guests.

One of the great things about artificial hedges is that they work with almost every decorating style–put the pool privacy screen in a sleek black planter for a modern look, or use a white Cape Cod planter, inspired by North Eastern coastal design, for a more traditional feel. Plus, these planters can be used individually or lined up to create a complete privacy wall or room. No matter the style you choose, your guests will appreciate the beautiful scenery and privacy.

No-Maintenance Trellis Plants

The perfect way to add a splash of color and class to your pool areas, our trellis space dividers are customizable and make it easy to provide your guests with privacy. Trellises are popular garden inspired decor and can quickly transform any space into a blooming oasis. Each trellis features sprawling vines with three choices of colors and dozens of paint options. Even better, the trellises are on wheels, making it easy to arrange them however you want and then change the arrangement for special events or to accommodate guest requests. The beautiful blooms on our azalea trellis dividers are as lifelike as possible, meaning you can enjoy the beauty of lifelike flowers without having to worry about maintaining them or keeping them away from water and pool chemicals.

Tropical Bamboo Blockers

Even a pool with a modern or minimalist style can still turn into a private oasis. Our beautiful and lifelike bamboo planter lets in natural light and gives any space a tropical and earthy feel. You can request sparse or dense planting designs, depending on the level of privacy you desire. The fiberglass planters can also be customized in your choice of dozens of paint colors and are an easy way to turn any space from ordinary to extraordinary. Because the outdoor artificial bamboo is so durable, these planters can be used anywhere throughout the pool area, from flanking the entrance to creating private poolside cabanas. Another option for a sleek, modern look is a chic privacy screen. Use on its own or place real or artificial plants in the bottom, this screen is an airy way to add privacy and style without making spaces feel cramped and closed-in.
