Your pool is and yard is going to be beautiful when done. I love the palms you choose and the pavers. Seeing your pics makes me miss Florida. I am a Florida transplant now living in SoCal.

Can't wait to see the finished pictures.

sprinklers almost done... sod halfway done...

tomorrows our big inspection day - fence/alarm/etc - if we pass, we can plaster next week!
Wow...sod!!! I'm almost more excited to lay down the sod than I am for my first swim. Haha. But with all the South Florida summer rains, I just now I'll get the sod in during dry season and it'll be a daily struggle.

trust me i know! the mud was getting soooo annoying

so we needed 6 full pallets of sod - and still need about a half pallet to finish up the side of the house!

PB mentioned we dont need to wait 30 days for salt because "its a light colored plaster, thats only for dark colors" - but everything i read says we should wait 30? do i push them on this or is that kind of a general good thing to do but not really a big deal if u do before 30 days? just seems weird as this isnt some new PB, theyve been around here like 30 years, very well known, highly rated?

Nice build!!! How much did you pay for the palm trees?
Paid $300 each for the royals (bout 4ft of trunk) and $200 each for the Foxtails

$250 for the triple christmas palms and $125 for the robelini palm

then about the same for each installation (the royals and foxtails needed bobcats/excavators, the others were hand planted)
