    starting work on the patio and opening the swamp

    Ducks like it!

    Need to excavate down dom 8" for the stone sand and bedding. Butting brick against the concrete. Need to clean the blue off the concrete. Still lots of work to do

    Yes I do, bpricedo. Lots of digging and moving dirt. I hope to get the pump fired up this weekend and start changing the water to a more pleasing color

    Re: starting work on the patio and opening the swamp

    Thanks, glad you guys have faith. The first 600 sq/ft of brick is coming next week. keeping the concrete around the pool saving me 400 sq/feet of brick and of course extra labor and misery. I have only built walkways, nothing of this scope before. Hope to get pump running in the next week too
