We decided to pop the pool nice and close to the house to ensure we maximised use of it. We are also fortunate to have a bathroom that opens directly on to our patio so no need for wet little feet to travel through the house :) Perfect!
Here is the yard before its transformation.
My dearly departed grass :(
For viewers of the great Aussie classic movie 'The Castle'...."Dug a hole Dad".
There's not a lot of garden left.
The temporary fencing is going up and it's starting to look like a pool!
And a few months later...
We still have a fair bit of landscaping left to finish and eventually we'd like to replace the make-shift shade sail with a lovely new one (this one was found left-over from the previous owners so a bargain!).
I'm thinking a cocktail by the pool is on the cards...
Bit by bit we get there :)
