Additionally, these types of plants, with large roots, should be kept away from pools as they can cause a massive amount of damage.
"Trees like alders and liquid ambers would also be an extremely poor choice, we strongly recommend not to use those near pools," Melbourne-based horticulturist and landscape designer Lisa Ellis told the publication.
Another thing to think about is how high the plants will grow.
"If you’re going to plant anything that’s going to get to a decent height, you need to consider how you’re constructing your garden, the structural elements, and ensure that it’s engineered accordingly," said Matt.
If in doubt, consult an expert.
