A planting pocket is an area in or around your pool deck designed to serve as a small garden. Planting pockets can create a variety of different looks, from creating what looks like a small island next to your swimming pool to providing a focal point for a fountain or unique seating arrangement. 

Planting pockets also provide an opportunity to bring your landscaping closer to your pool. You can, for instance, plant ornamental grasses, succulents or cacti in a planting pocket next to a freeform pool, and frame it with small boulders for an enhanced natural look.
