    not sure about the deal with the green pool. Looks to be quite neglected. Why did they spend money on the pool surround if they don't use it?

    I guess the whole yard was neglected and they are renovating for spring. all the sod was a deck and the flat rock wall was a 2x6 wall. I'll se if I can find a before pic.

    thanks Zedo, It was originally all supposed to be sod, I suggested a patio and they came back with this! I never did one before but it was quick and easy (after I lost a man for 2 hrs to cut all those sod strips)

    the pool cover was anchored to the old deck. They will have to use water bags now to hold the cover, or install anchors into the grass.


    I like the stairs, landing you did. Any photos of the work in progress?
