    getting the yard enjoyable

    when i first moved in, the pool was green, the yard was foxtails, and porch was peeling blue paint. no good! i dont have before pics but this is where i have gotten so far. the pics are in order from oldest till now.

    and here is one of our jacuzzi and pool at night.

    not sure why the pool looks green on the camera(maybe cause of the pool light), but its clean.

    its been some work, but its gettin better. were havin rainstorms now and i can pretty much watch the freshly seeded bermuda grass grow in the back planter! i also decided to take the pool fence that runs to the back wall down and move it to extend over to the side wall so the palapa that is going up will be part of the pool area instead of seperated. i feel it will give better safety for getting to the kids in the water if there is an issue.
