    Hello everyone from PacketRat

    Just got my new pool installed and wanted to say there is so much good information here.
    I plan on going broke using everyone's ideas for my back yard.
    Here are a couple of before, during and afters.

    Lots of work left on the yard and around the pool. Seems like it never ends.

    The pool looks great and thanks for sharing photos. Do you mind sharing your location??? I'm just curious because I grew up in northern Florida and that looks like home.
