    So here is the location of where it will be. The steps will be about 3 feet into the the existing patio, then they will use the same pavers to finish around the pool. I will have 6 ft of pavers on the left right up to the house on the left. I will post the design pics later.

    Thanks, I'm a little disappointed my lawn is gonna be destroyed, I just did that with seed and a lot of hard work 2 years ago. Gonna have to redo it, but it will be worth it.

    I'd rather have a pool than grass! Can't wait to see it progress!

    Your backyard is beautiful. But, a backyard with a pool is beautiful too!

    Ooooooh weeeeeee! Look at that pool! No more grass cutting for you! This is going to be an awesome back yard!!!

    My husband loves that I filled up the back yard with the pool and cut his mowing time down!

    That's concrete, they will backfill dirt on top, then another 3 or 4 inches of concrete on top, which then will be covered with pavers.

    It goes fast. Looks like composite walls? A friend had one built last season.

    Who is your pool builder?
