Getting closer, any teaser picture I have trken is too large so text has to do. Got 2.90" of rain over the weekend so the pool is now full and just have to plum the return off the filter and law the new electric line

Great job. All of it is hard work. I want to put up my pool so badly but I am just so tired. Ugh... I dont even want to think about digging up sod again.

If it's all (or mainly) sod you need to remove, you might look into renting a sod cutter. That's what I was considering before I decided to hire someone to level (cause my 26' is roughly 5.5" off level which is about 125 cubic feet of dirt to dig).

Around here a sod cutter goes for $91/day. Then you can roll up the sod and take it to the local compost pile or dump. Or you could actually probably sell it on Craigslist or Facebook and recoup much or all of the rental cost...

I didn‘t get a chance to comment before the other thread closed, Casey - congrats on the house, it’s beautiful!

Sorry about hijacking, OP!

Most sod cutters have trouble in my area, so a square shovel cutting bricks works. Then I put the bricks in the front yard to grow Bermuda there.

Yeah over it
