    I'm from Sunrise Florida.
    I am currently converting two small, plastic formed pools into one much, much larger free formed lined pool. I have the filter and lines and skimmer, etc.
    I'm still in demolition of the area. Still need to dig the hole. That will be an issue because my back is bad and the yard is full of 4"-8" rocks.
    I'll likely be looking for someone I can pay to do the basic digging.

    No.
    But at 33" it's still a dry hole.

    I offered the neighbors son $150.
    He accepted. But I'm still a week or two away from digging.
    I'm re doing the entire patio and part of it is a rabbit run and tortoise pen.
    I've moved the tortoises out to the back yard and there is no more rabbit.
    The extra space will be nice.

    Right now the place looks like a bomb went off out there.
    I removed three pickup truck loads of Pathos plants so far and some mesh fencing.
    I'm going this time with a gravel and mulch Zen garden type look.
    It should be easier to manage

    This is the patio area.
    One pond out. Another coming out tomorrow.
    Then the digging begins.
    It will be most of this area.

    We love to watch others work hard and say they are finished because deep down we know you are never finished .;);)
