Debris in pool
My in ground pool is in the far corner of our yard. All 3 of our bordering neighbors have pine trees that leave debris in our pool. I was wondering if there was any kind of barrier- be it plant or man-made that would be acceptable to grow up and try and block the neighbors pain in the neck pine needles and debris. Thanks!

Unfortunately the very best solution is most likely a pool cover. There are some excellent, though costly, automatic pool covers available.

The challenge with planting something near the pool is that you would then have to deal with the debris from those plants as well as the nearby pines. Plus the pines are likely well established and it would take a fair amount of time for the "screen" plants to rise above them.
