First picture is of the pool after the liner was removed. This pool went from four feet to seven feet deep and held 22,500 gallons of water when full. The next shot is of the support polls that held up the 800 square of wood deck. Each of these post were set in two feet of concrete and had to be removed using a chain attached to a Bobcat machine.
Next, the pool is gone and they have started filling in and attempting to do some leveling of the yard. It took seven dump truck loads of fill dirt plus two loads of top soil to get the yard ready for new grass. To the right is the yard after the dirt was put in, just waiting for the new sprinkler system and new sod.
And here is the finished product. We not only have a usable backyard we also have a complete in ground sprinkler system in both the back and front yards but also down the side of the house where we have consistently had trouble getting grass to grow. I think we are really going to start enjoying our yard.
