dont know any gardners but think a trip to your local garden centre to buy some large pots filled with colourful plants would look lovely ...and easy to maintain

Have a look in the Free Beer section, there is a little bit of advice on pool planting...

Your only option seems to be pots and troughs.

Just be careful of your choice of plants - if they shed their leaves and flowers you will have a real pool cleaning problem - especially if the wind picks up. We have large flower beds around our pool and after a windy day it looks like the Ganges after a funeral!

The other consideration is irrigation. Pots will need to be watered daily in July/August. If you can get a discreet irrigation system put in with drips for each pot it will save you hours of labour. If you are going to leave the place for more than a few days it is essential.
