The pool before I started demo
Starting the Project
Progress and Filling in
Grading out, clean up and ready for sod
The old pool walls where rusted out and the liner was shot.
During the Project
Pulling out the metal sides of the pool and the chain link fence.
Next step was to pull the concrete and put it in the pool.
Time to back fill the pool.
The finished product- ready for sod.
Pictures before the project started. The far edge had popped 3ft out of the ground .

Finished product, you would never know a pool was there!
This pool hadn't been used for more than 20 years. The lady who owned the home didn't use it anymore and wanted some back yard to enjoy. I began with draining the pool out down to the dirt and sludge.

During the process of busting up the concrete pool and decking, the pool began to refill with water from the water table. I had to keep the pump running to be able to continue work.
Filling in and Leveling the Ground
As I busted up the concrete and caved it in, I filled around it with dirt and compacted it. I layered concrete and dirt to prevent air pockets.
Graded and Ready for Sod
