On Friday, June 1, 2012, the paver crew replaced the pavers they had taken up prior to the beginning of pool construction. The cleaning crew followed behind them and cleaned out the pool and attached the fittings to the 7 jets. Friday was the 8th work day for the pool crews.
The wall is to be completed on Wednesday June 6th.
The mosaics will be installed on Thursday, the cleaning crew will clean the pool again. On Friday June 8th the Aqua Pearl Mini pool finish will be applied. Of course this schedule only works if our beautiful weather continues :).

Stacked Stonewall almost complete. Landscaper has begun to install the river rock, mondo grass and Sago Palms around the pool. There will be 3 large Sabel Palms installed behind the wall then the low voltage landscape lights will go in.
Looking forward to the mosaics being installed tomorrow!
