    Not ready for prime time...

    I've been hanging around this site (full time) since the beginning of my build; June last year. Pool was filled August 15th and from then more time has been spent swimming rather than finishing the project. That's not an apology There's still more landscaping (and lot's of growing) to be done but we are getting closer. It seems to have turned into a one plant, rock, yard art piece at a time, but I don't mind. It actually gives me an excuse to sit and 'plan'.

    Anyway, I have spied into your backyards and now it is your turn to do the same to mine.

    These photos are from a couple of different days and times. Yes I know the water is low and there is effervescence to be cleaned near the spillway. Both have been corrected at the time of this post. A days pool work is never done. <snic>

    A thread from a day or two ago featured battling lawn mowings. Buried back behind the table/chairs and spa is my "Back 40"; A 7' X 10' plot of drought tolerant fescue. It takes me longer to set up the electric mower and string trimmer than it does to mow. But a pool needs a lawn.

    Oh, and don't ask how old my daughter is. The "Hello Kitty" life ring is mine!

    If I think about it I'll add some build photos in the future.

    Nice back yard! Might sound crazy but I like your fence. Ours is c r a plol and even with the landscaping is the first thing you see. The look of those wide boards and top cap is what I want. How often do you have to stain it....that might be a deal breaker.
