    Well, the grass you do have is nice and green. Very nice. How do you like the pavers around the pool? Do they get hot? Did you do any of this yourself?

    I did the landscaping(complete with irragation system) and interlock myself.
    Had help with the shed. You would not believe how much hotter the pavers
    are compaired to 3' of concrete. I think are back yard is pretty hot,
    are pool has been at 82 with no heater and no solar blanket the last couple days.

    What an incredibly wonderful transformation! You did a wonderful job.

    Wow, your backyard must be hot. I live in sunny Arizona and my pool has only been up to 82 degrees F so far this year. Last week we had a couple of cooler days where it was only in the low 90's and my water temp dropped to 76 degrees F. My pool gets full sun.

    Very nice!

    the hot pavers just make that first dip into the water all the more refreshing!!
