Hi, there. This is the second thread I have started today, the other is in the newcomers forum about pool chemicals.
Most of our pool is in direct sunlight in the hot Texas sun. Since our pool is shallow, it gets warm. The deep end is no more than five feet. This is perfect for our needs, but we want it to be cooler. We are waiting one season before deciding if we need a chiller, a heat pump, more landscaping, etc.
We want landscaping that will give us privacy, grow quickly, and give shade to the pool. We will also consider umbrellas that hang over the pool or any other solution you might have.
Should we wait until spring before planting? Do you have suggestions about what to plant?
Thank you very much for your help.
