Choose evergreen trees so that leaves don't fall into the pool. You can also plant some evergreen ornamental grasses, and you don't need to build them to avoid having to clean up the debris from the construction. Avoid cluttered plants that have lost leaves, needles, berries or fruit. In short, it's all about minimizing the amount of leaf debris. Not only do certain fragile flowers (lilies, rhododendrons, trilliums) clog the pool's drainage, but the fruits and berries on the trees can also ruin the pool's hardscape or discolor it.

Also make sure that sidewalks and rest areas are not planted with plants that are too crowded, and it is best to keep a bit of separation between tropical plants and some dense undergrowth.
