The existing pool was approximately 35 years old. The homeowners had just purchased the house and wanted to totally renovate the pool and back yard. The existing pool was a 16ft x 40ft Lazy ‘L’, with a fiberglass spa/step extending out of the shallow end. The pool had a 3ft perimeter of concrete with a small patio area that combined concrete and interlock pavers. The pool also had the original wide 6” aluminum patio coping. The pool and patio area was dated and the homeowners wanted something more contemporary. They had a large family with small children and were looking for a number of items. They wanted the pool to have an automatic pool cover for safety reason, a larger concrete patio area for entertaining, and they wanted updated pool lighting as well as some kind of water feature to enhance the pool and the large back yard.
