My pool was just completed yesterday and I'm just waiting on final inspection and my system training / chemicals! Can't wait to jump in!
It's a 16x34 steel wall vinyl pool. Hayward salt system, sand filter, Polaris 380. I'll have to dig up more details for my sig soon.
As you can see, I have a blank slate! The little nook by the walkway is where we're already planning to put a nice orange hibiscus plant. We have a landscaper coming out on Saturday to measure for sod, though I'm a little nervous putting it down in the middle of summer. However, I have a golden retriever who is a complete mud dog, so he's been in all his glory with the yard of dirt and mud. I, on the other hand, am at wit's end cleaning up the muddy tracks in the house, so laying sod may be worth the risk at this point!
Look forward to learning a lot from you guys and getting great landscape and poolscape ideas!
