2015 - No P in the OOL

I bought Trey an above ground pool at the end of last Summer, and during the last week of school I got it setup.

Feel free to compare the photos to the yardscape photos of the back yard that I previously posted.

The picture of me I couldn't get two of the adapters in place because it had gotten too cold and the vinyl wouldn't stretch.

Thanks :).

My back yard, before we leveled it off into 4 tiers (Pool, Patio, Storage (shed), Rear Side Yard) was just a big hill (as you can tell by the amount of tiers, lol); we literally couldn't do anything on it due to the major incline...

I'll see if I can find a really early "before" photo, vs the album of construction photos.

I am going to tell my Daughter what you did. They are having trouble selling her husband's house because his back yard does now what yours used to. He would do well to leave
The incline back to the tree line & add a retaining wall.

Thanks for the idea.

We had to, if we wanted to get any use out of it; lol. BTW, the textured stone costs about as much as the untextured; and it add's so much to the visual element of the design. I didn't just want a drab grey everywhere; in fact, on the patio I kind of want to get some concrete stain...

The //www.agardenersforum.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/galleries/377386/2013-yardscape-back-yard-before.html really shows how bad it was when you compare it to the photo here where it shows the Tier I/Tier II and Tier II/Tier III walls.
