The Pool To Patio – A Home Improvement Time Lapse Adventure
It was time to remove the above ground pool at a friend’s house. The pump never worked properly, it was hell to maintain, and it bred more frogs and mosquitoes than it ever spent time being an actual swimming pool. Anyone that even thought of touching the water would become horribly sick for days. It had to go.
But what we found underneath when we removed the liner was a perfectly level bed of gravel and sand. We could have brought in fill dirt and sod, tried to landscape the area to fit the slop and make it grass again, but that seemed like a shame to lose that perfectly level area. So we ran the calculations and found that it would be about the same price to build a short retaining wall and put in some paving stones, especially since the stones were on sale. 😀
I hope you enjoy the video as much as we enjoy the new patio. Don’t worry, all debris surrounding the pool in the final shot has been removed and landscaping ideas are underway for beautifying the surrounding area.
I just wanted to shout out to Lindsey Stirling (http://www.youtube.com/user/lindseystomp), sssShawnnnn (http://www.youtube.com/user/sssShawnnnn), and Wax Audio (http://www.youtube.com/user/waxaudio) for maxing such excellent music that helps drive people to get up and dance or work. 🙂
