    "Still working on it"...I presume this means the yard, 'cause the pool looks lovely!

    That last pic on the left where you see all the dirt by the fence. We are thinking about putting cement down there so we can put chairs around the pool. Right now there is not any room right around the pool for chairs without being right by the pool.

    Yes you are correct. Made that edit in the first post.

    I sure wouldn't hesitate to add more concrete. When we had the concrete pour around our pool last year the contractor mentioned it was probably the 2nd most concrete he'd ever poured around a pool. It looked massive at first, but once we loaded it up with pool furniture it "disappeared" rather quickly.

    I guess just the "after" because it was a brand new build from start to finish. The "before" was a really sorry excuse for grass in Michigan. I've still posted a couple of pictures though. These were from around Labor Day weekend 2009 and so there was and is still some work going on. The DW will be adding lots of container plantings to the long run of steps to break them up, as well as scattering a few around the perimeter I'm sure. Also, I'm working on planting grass in the area to the left of the cabana as well as repairing and re-planting the areas outside the fence that were damaged during the build.
