Here is a job done for Larry and Mary, a nice local couple who had a pool installed and no patio around the poor thing. They entertain a large family who visit often and who have children ready made for a nice swimming pool. The project took up a substantial amount of territory, aside from this picture. We made a sandbox, planted some very desert-themed cacti and yucca plants, even a Joshua Tree or two. I liked the end result and so did they.
