Talked to my mother in law today..and she isn't going to let us put the pool on the section of the property that I wanted. So sad..because its the only part of the 5acres that has ACTUAL GRASS and nice feel to it...the rest is mostly pasture grass, and out back is the unused part of our 2 acres they let us have...but its truly a pasture. My brother shredded it a few months ago..and scraped up all the rose hedges that grew out there into piles to be burned..but alas..we were under a burn ban for months..and couldn't burn the piles. The plan was to also burn the whole pasture down to dirt...then turn it with a tractor and plow or whatever they use to turn the dirt. She said if we're getting a pool..we need to put it out back now. I'm attaching a pic of the area directly behind my home. You can see the grass..or weeds..whatever is growning out there is getting taller. Can this area be used for a pool site? How hard will it be to prep it? I planned on renting a sod lifter..but I'm not sure a sod lifter would work out on this area, since its not really a "lawn" type grass. Any input?
