They got started on the retaining wall then Hurricane Rosa made an appearance and halted progress but better than having a pond right now..
Supposed to start digging the pool tomorrow. IMG_3138.jpg IMG_3155.jpg

They started to dig and had to immediately get out the rock pick but managed to get it all done in 1 day

I had the copter out for a bit and was excited to see it taking shape.

Lots and lots of rock and a hard section of Caliche

We stopped into NPT to get ideas on water colors and tile. The woman suggested this with a few bag of Cobalt and shells thrown in, any suggestions are greatly appreciated.. IMG_4250.jpg IMG_4252.jpg

I’ve got Aqua Blue which isn’t Aqua White but you can check my build thread and see how that turned out. Depth of water has a big affect on color as does the stuff you have nearby reflecting onto it. That color you’re looking for looks like a Tahoe or reverse Tahoe in my opinion.

Thanks BigE! I like your color but would like it a bit darker.. I'll have to Tahoe or Reverse Tahoe..

Congratulations, that's going to be a very nice pool! We're in AJ too and just getting started, so I'm taking notes :) We just completed a retaining wall and will need fill and grade before we can start to have someone dig it out. :-(

I sent a PM Jennifer,, so far super happy with the way the walls turned out, those guys are masters.

Livinwell, did you use travis for the walls? He seems to do all the wall work out this way.

We have so many rocks around the yard I've been filling the planters with them around the edges and for drainage. I'm looking forward to filling them with cactus..

The walls really turned out great! They are going to make for nice planters. We have a lot of rocks out here by the White tanks as well. I am considering Gabion walls just so I have a use for all the rocks!
