I had no idea any of those trees would get so large! We were also thinking about replacing the zelkova with a coral bark Japanese maples - sango kaku. They’re beautiful! I agree with you that it would feel more open if we could see outside of our yard. With dogs, we need to keep as much grass as possible. Thank you!

That looks like a nice Japanese maple. Seems like a much better selection for your situation.

It feels like forever (even though it's only been a couple of weeks), but there's a little more activity on my pool. Late yesterday, they installed our equipment! Would you mind taking a look to make sure it looks good for my setup? I appreciate your expertise!

Yay! They finally put the coping around the pool and mapped out the concrete! Hopefully, that means the deck will get poured this week, weather permitting. Below is my crude drawing of our backyard. The picture isn't really to scale, but the dimensions of the concrete are accurate. Around the pool, the minimum concrete border is 6 feet and the max is 19 feet. This should give us 2 areas large enough to fit multiple lounge chairs - one by the house and one by the diving board. Do you think this layout is good? I know people always say you can never have enough concrete.........
