    Our Pool Solved Our Sloping Yard

    A late photo diary of the pool we installed this past fall on our very under used sloping back yard. We now have a yard we can use and enjoy!! I only wish we'd done it many years before.

    The dog just doesn't understand. The new green stuff is soooooo soft and lush that she doesn't want to go elsewhere. Any solutions? Thankfully for the most part she only pees on the new grass and goes down into the bottom of the yard (near the property lines) to do anything *else*.
