    Really cool-
    If you decide for a change in the future, Or maybe even a small addition now- the gas torch ideas with burning (mesquite?) citrinella will help with skeeters and flies...

    Yeah, I've loaded up on about a dozen Tiki torches with the citronella oil to place around the pool area as well...

    Next year we're going to hit the landscaping around the pool pretty hard but still incorporate those tiki torches all around.

    I'm tired of getting bitten during the evening when swimming and entertaining guests...

    Thanks!

    Beautiful pool and you have a park like setting with all the tree's. Very pretty. I am considering the plumbago also as I have Christmas palms around my pool cage area and most died between last winter and the one before. I am tired of replacing them.
