Just noticed this forum (after 1 year ) and figured I'd post some pics of my pool. Pool was built about 5 years ago. My wife and I decided that it was about time since our backyard faces south and there is no relief from the heat. I built the deck, the fence and the shed but the pool was left up to the professionals. All the landscaping was done by myself with the help of a few pimped friends but it was a work in progress. It's now starting to fill in. Looked pretty sparse at first. A friend and I also built a retaining wall along the rear of the pool. My back was KILLING me for a few days after that
One thing I learned when you buy a pool. You get the pool, equipment and surrounding concrete. They don't make it visually appealing which is where all the work is.
Thanks for looking,
This is looking back at the entrance to the backyard,
Here is the pool taken from the rear of my property line,
From the front entrance,
Here is a bubble rock I built since every small shrub I put there eventually died. The sound of the water is very relaxing and the rock won't die
This is where I hang out most of the time....in the shade

My favorite tree. It's a juniper I keep trimmed to look like a cactus. It needs a trim but you get the idea...
