  • Awnings can be retractable or permanent and non-retractable. If the pool is close enough to the house an awning or two is practical.

  • Plants are beautiful and practical ways to be able to “re-decorate” the poolside space. Make sure you use planters on wheels so you can easily move them from space to space.
  • Umbrellas are beautiful and moveable ways to get shade and can be easily moved to follow the sun’s pattern.
