About half of them are Product Guides, useful to point out the sometimes small differences in product use and application. The other half cover loftier topics such as water conservation, aquatic therapy, learning to swim, or other pool safety discussions.

  1. Hi Davey,

    We’re moving to Dallas Texas and having a pool put in. Our home backs up to greenway/water fountain and want to keep view (no privacy issue), but also want practical landscaping.

    Can you give me some suggestions.

    Thank you!!


    • Hi Joann, boxwood, dwarf pine, and yews make nice border plantings that won’t grow too large, with light pruning every few years. I also like decorative grasses, like fountain grass, pompas grass, and flowering bushes like forsythia and otto luykens are nice. Most important, are that plants are selected for your growing zone, and water availability. Generally speaking, the plants offered at your local garden center are chosen correctly, and will do well, given water, sun, and lots of love!
