As architectural elements, plants are pretty much exterior design mainstays in many homes. Foliage of the right height, thickness, and arrangement ensures privacy and offers protection from the glare of the sun. Whether your home has a decidedly contemporary look or a rustic design, the right plants can create a natural fence, a backdrop for your garden, and a complementary canvas around your pool. You can use ornamental grasses, flowery or fruit-bearing shrubberies, or even trees. You can mix and match plant sizes and colours to create a lively, eye-catching outdoor scene in your backyard.

Once a province of standard leaf skimmers and manual labour, pool cleaning is now largely carried out by smart gadgets. Decades of research and development in robotics gave birth to pool cleaners that cover every nook and cranny in pools of any size or shape. In fact, such robotic pool cleaners are capable of scaling the walls, up to the waterline. The concept of automatic pool cleaning dates back to the 1960s in the U.S. Andrew Pansini of Greenbrae, California is credited with inventing the first patented automatic pool cleaner. His invention dislodged dirt and grime, leaving them in the water for the pool pump and filters to remove.

Light chores like using a hand skimmer to gather leaves, twigs, and other debris from the pool water can be done by kids. Meanwhile, the more complex tasks can be done by adults, like sealing cracks between tiles and bricks using a caulk gun and handling chemicals. If they work together, families can keep pool water thoroughly clean for several hours of swim time. The use of efficient pool cleaners in Perth is required for a thoroughly clean pool with a minimum of fuss. The tricky part is to figure out which among these pieces of equipment is suitable for the job since each family has a different type of pool.
