    A few pics of the new pool

    We finally put the landscaping behind the raised wall (went with some loropetalum, gardenia, pittosporum, African iris and some other perennials) and put some new grass around the deck. Last thing to do is get the modest summer kitchen built, which will get done in Aug.

    The pool looks great!

    Couldn't you have put some bikini models in the pictures for us?

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
