Typical of this blog, owing to my usual tendency to take multitudinous pictures ‘in progress’, I am having some trouble finding the final pictures taken of this pool project. I often take pictures for legal and educational reasons, the truth is. I like proving the work was done appropriately. It has less to do with suspicious motives or anything else, although in the event of contestations, the record is right there. I just feel the clients feel better served knowing some of the history put into what they see. It also serves me extremely well in this blog because people can get a much better sense of what actually goes into a landscaping project. When I tell clients to “Expect Beirut”, lol, I need a reason. I do indeed mention that landscaping is just about 80% preparation and 20% finishing. That’s the God’s truth, the fact is.
The picture above has to do for now. It being wet illustrates the overall look when we finally put a bright sealer on top of the pavers, giving it a permanent “wet look”.
A little more perspective along the side:
When I find (grrrrrrr) the others, I will update this. It looked fabulous, planted and sealed. I guess you’ll have to take my word for it. There was a party opening it officially to the neighborhood, friends and family which was a challenge to survive. I made it and slept over that night, lol.
