Decision Made!!!!

Well after an in depth discussion one family night tea, involving all four boys & their father it was decided a pool was no longer warranted! The pool was cement based with a liner, the liner was leaking & the pool was just too close to the shed, We toyed with the idea of reconstructing it into a smaller rectangle & a more contemporary look, but that would involve great expense as new pool fence would be need as well.  The boys are all grown up & will most likely move away so the use was questionable as well.
SOOOO it was decided, out with the pool. Decision process took way longer than the action required to get rid of it. Sons recruited, tools located & in place, pump brought in from work, all done in about 5 hours.

You can see all the tree roots that had found where the leaks were.  The rocks on the side are concreted in, not sure what to do here, but could perhaps just leave them & incorporate into garden somehow?

These roots are from a very large cocos palm we had removed last month.

What a mess, but the boys had fun!
Now let the designing & planning begin!


  1. good luck with the designing and planning - looks like you have a lot of hard work ahead.
