I really do like the rocks around the rosebush. but everything else is negotiable. We don't make a ton of money, thus the reason I keep my pool the TFP way!!, but I have been gifted 400$ to redo my backyard landscape. I do plan to put a fence around that equipment pad. Basically We bought the house a year and a half ago and planned to get around to the landscape at some point. I know TFP won't lead me wrong!
For point of commonality when refering to different things the bench is the north end of the pool.
The west side has about a 3-4' drop to the fence. in the middle of the pool decking I have tried to prevent further erosion underneath the deck by placing a bunch of broken concrete and bits as well as a rail road tie that was laying around.
Thanks for your help in advance.
