Front yard??? You will have some major yard work to do when this is all done!

What will you be putting down around the equipment? I have ideas if you have not thought about it yet.

The stucco wall would match the house but I worry about how much room there is to move around the equipment with how close the wall will need to be to it due to how close that spa will be. A pretty lattice wall will be thinner and provide good air flow around the equipment. Inside the equipment area I would put down a GOOD weed block and a solid "floor" of stepping stones then large rocks like river rock all around the equipment its self. It will be a pain getting the weed block in there but it will be well worth the effort to keep the weeds and such out. I would use "lawn staples" to help hold it down in there as well.

That looks awesome! I really like the lay out! Glad to hear you are already bonding with your pool. It is time for YOUR set of links!
The first set is how to get a great plaster job and the second set is how to care for it after the PB is done.

Now is also a good time to ask what test kit your PB will be providing so we can fill in any holes.

We have had a couple week delays cause we needed permits to bury our propane tank . It’s massive 500 gallon and large and in charge . It will be buried alive . Our neighborhood has no gas hook ups propane is only option to heat spa and pool.

OUCH! I bet that hurt the wallet some but man will it be worth it when you are sitting in the spa with an adult drink in hand after a long days work!!
