Desperately Seeking Pool - Need Help!
Any advice you guys have on how to get this started will be greatly appreciated. We have a home in AZ, desert terrain. We want to build a pool and have had a few pool builders out, but they don't say alot about what it will take to prepare the surface.
Then we meet with a couple landscape design and only one calls back after coming out.
Then we get an excavator to start moving rocks and bringing in fill to level things out.
Problem is the pool guys don't provide a "plan" to explain what they will do with the land, the excavator is just that, no plan to say what he would do, just wants to move things around with a vision in his head, and landscape design, well yet to see it and still only one person responded.
Question - What comes first, the landscape or the pool and if it is the pool (which I want) who designs the plan to say what the landscape design is to make the are ready for excavation for a pool. Is this making sense or do we just get 3D pool pictures and "trust" that pool builder has engineer/knowledge to get the ground right?
Pics show back yard in current state after pulling out some of the badly constructed retaining wall and wood fence.
Thanks for reading.
