Newbie here looking into adding a pool. Have gotten recommendations on several PB and have been working with some quotes/designs. Since we are new at this wanted any feedback on cost/suggestions, design feedback etc. We have a smallish back yard, utilities (electric/gas) are all on the south west side. Due to access excavation will be done with a Bobcat. We would also like to keep a trampoline in the backyard with some small greenspace near it. Several questions we have:
- Is a 6" rise with a veneered stone going to look high enough with the 3 18" posts with water scuppers?
- How will the equipment look where it is located? Will a cedar fence with some planters/plants around it look okay? Would stone look be better or does it not matter?
- Reviewing this site, the pump, filter and other equipment seem to be reasonable and appropriately sized as far as I can tell, is there anything I am missing?
- Is the price reasonable?
Any other general feedback? Anything else we should be watching for or considering?

Note these are older renderings, the bench on side of the pool is no longer there and the fence around the equipment is supposed to be cedar not stone.
