Land is real property, obviously. You can't take the land with you when you move. 
Shrubs and trees, since they are attached to the land by roots, are fixtures.
Swimming pools that are not fixed in the ground are NOT fixtures. So, even if it is well integrated into the property, like a jacuzzi or a prefab swimming pool, that is personal property.  Trade fixtures are also not true fixtures.
