    Radiant Pool Backyard Phase 2 - Block Wall and Pavers *photos

    So, I finally was able to fullfill my dream of creating phase 2 of my backyard oasis. My pool is a 24' Round Radiant Pool buried 2.5' which I put in myself 2 years ago. It was simply the best decision I made so far with my house renovations. I knew I always wanted to have the look of a pool surrounded by a stone wall. Below is the progression:

    Before:







    Construction:














    Construction Finished (Still have to complete basement entrance and cultured stone foundation)











    Furnished:












    Relaxation:





    Next on the agenda, Landscaping and low voltage lighting.

    Phase 3 = Detached garage with pool changing room and outdoor bar (I have alot of saving to do...)

    Amazing transformation that really blends the pool in and unifies it with the rest of the yard.

    I had to look at your pics a couple of times just to take in all of the details! NICE! JOB! SO pretty! I love the steps!

    I do have to ask........how are you going to change the liner when the time comes? I am hoping there is more finger room than it looks like!

    You have dropped some "dimes" on you yard just with that fence! Now the stone work???? WOW!

    Thanks guys... Appreciate the nice comments. Radiant pools use an "In-ground" pool liner so it allows for a standard brick coping. One of the reasons why I got that type of pool in the first place.

    Actually Brothers 3 was very expensive and wouldnt just sell me the pool without install. I ordered it from a pool Specialty Pool Product. I installed the pool myself. I couldnt be happier with my radiant pool.

    That is beautiful! What a lovely yard. What pavers did you use? We are using the Techo Blu 60 and it looks similar. Can't wait for mine to go in next week.

    Thanks for the response. We are using a combination of Champlain grey and shale grey and used Champlain for the coping. I am so excited to see it in place!
