As you consider your landscaping around your swimming pool or spa, it is important to think long-term. Existing trees in your backyard living area may drop leaves into the swimming pool or spa after installation, for instance. Or new trees you’re thinking of adding to your custom outdoor living space might even damage the structure of your new swimming pool or spa years down the road.

It’s true. Tree roots can damage the structure of a swimming pool or spa, or the decking surrounding them. Common trees whose roots radiate and can ultimately cause this kind of damage include poplar, ash, alder, and pine.
