Nothing "Easy" About Setting This Pool
You know those seasonal easy to set up pools? Well we bought one, had it delivered and many days of hard work later we finally have the site prepped to put the thing up. Combine the fact that we have very sloped ledgy land and my hubby being the King of overdoing a project it was a ton of work. :-)
First he decides to build a stone retaining wall for the fill. Sounds lovely!
So every night after work he gathers stones and builds the wall.
Ember is supervising in the background.
I think she likes the stonewall but we haven't told her that we are going
to have to move her doghouse yet.
The pool was delivered
The crew moving Ember's dog house
Bringing in the fill
More stone work
Adding a ring of topsoil over the fill.
Bringing in the sand for under the pool
Layers of fill, topsoil and sand bing leveled out
More leveling using a laser level. Again, Ember is supervising.
Watering down all the layers to help pack them down
The lay of the land and the fence make it look unloved but he assures me that it is level
Next step is to get the pool laid out on the sandy area and then set it up.
