Very Awesome! Where are you located and who was your builder? Also, care to share any other stats?

Hey Mitch. Thanks for the comments. I'm in Elk Grove. I did owner builder.

Stats? Let's see.... It's 34 x 16 (22' at the longest width). I went with a blue 3M Colorquartz finish. That's all I can think of at the top of my head. Any specific questions?

We are FINALLY DONE with the landscaping (except for 2 trees).

A Pom-Pon juniper tree will go against this fence.

A Hinoki Cypress tree will go behind the waterfall.

We still need to get a bridge to go over the rocks and connect to the walkway on the side of the house.

We also painted our house :-)

Next year my outdoor bbq island will go where the table is and we will get all new patio furniture :-)

Awesome! What are the dimensions of your waterfall and how many and what type of light do you have?

Thanks burgos! Our waterfall is about 6 1/2' (inside the niche) x 3 1/2'.

For lights, we have 14 Malibu landscaping lights.

What kind of plants/trees did you put behind the pool, near the fence? Your landscaping looks to be evergreen, which is what our yard is. I am looking for ideas to replace some of the landscaping we had to pull out that will also run along our fence. There will be a small planter area between the RBB and the fence - maybe 4 ft. and will run the length of the pool for the most part.
