Thanks, A friend has the Gabion as an accent wall and I like them, she's just a few blocks away so more than enough supplies for the walls. We already had some stucco around the patio so I tried to mimmic those, now to choose colors for painting,, not sure if we'll go with back one color and the planters another or all the same.

SPA jets seems low - I really want to see this pool done with that backdrop....I’m looking for the same pool color, but my pool is mostly shallow (3.5ft) - Aqua Blue Pebblesheen is my choice at the moment.

Back to update. Ive been busy doing small tasks around here. First We weren't sure of the color to paint the walls, match the house or the permitter wall so I did a bit of each and in the end the darker color won out. IMG_5148-1.jpg

Thanks Kim,, I used a sprayer and mostly did the backside with the lighter color that the previous owner had lying around. I used it where they were backfilling the wall. Ive given it a few more coats and still have one spot they just redid the stucco this week to fill in some cracks. Its on my huge list of fix items.

One bobcat rental, 30 tons of fill dirt and we're moving on to the next step.
Happy to have nice neighbors with a small tractor to drop in an agave I had dug out months ago, I had a shade cover over it and watered it regularly and it still looks healthy.IMG_0089.jpgIMG_0104.jpgIMG_0116.jpg

The forum gets many reports over the years of LOTS of problems with in-floor systems. (search on this forum) I would discourage installing one.

My choice would be a good robot and a suction side port for the occasional manual vacuum.

Wow, impressive! Perfect view of the Siphon Draw Trail up to Flatiron, my second favorite hike in Arizona...after the Canyon. Your pool design complements that backdrop perfectly! Congratulations!

Thanks and pretty excited to get it finished. Yes we see headlamps all the time going up and down.
If you ever hike it and want a picture of your group standing on the edge let me know. I've gotten a few pictures of people standing on the edge with my 600 mm lens.

I had to relocate all my drains from the rooftop as they used to all feed out right were the pool was. I also added an outdoor shower. Luckily the propane tank is right on the backside of the wall where the shower is so that part couldn't have worked out better. One had to make a big U-Turn all around the patio.
