I'm a little embarrassed to be posting these considering some of the REALLY nice pools that I have seen here. Please break it to me slowly.
When we bought our house this spring, there had been NOTHING really done with the landscaping in the backyard since the pool was installed. Just a few palm trees and tiger grass planted. I'll be really honest, we haven't even really weeded because we put it off thinking we would have started on the landscaping by now.
We have a small child and desperately need to fence in the pool and we're also in dire need of other landscaping advice because we are clueless when it comes to that kind of thing. I am going to post a few pictures to give you some idea of what we are grappling with:
The view from my back door into my yard: (Isn't the pump placement GREAT!!!)
These are of the yard on the left side of the pool (We put down some sod just last week)
This is the yard looking towards the right. You can see that we've busted out some concrete and have someone scheduled to haul it off. It will eventually be the home for a playset.
Yes, the pool is in the MIDDLE of our yard. Almost two equal sections of yard on either side of it. I am at a loss on how to fence it since we would like our son to be able to wander around on the patio AND be able to get to the future site of the playground.
Anyone have any ideas?
