It looks like we has some legal drama surrounding the next designed dilemma. The letter reads, Dear Genevieve, we were forced to stop construction on our pool, because our neighbors complained, they said we had three front yards, we had to hire a lawyer and now have to go to a hearing. We are not out of zoning compliance, but since we had to start construction, we found erosion around the pool area and we have been unable to finish the project. We would love to make it looks spectacular, so the neighbors are envious. So you want to make everyone jealous, because they've made you miserable and having to go to court about it. I get it. So let's see what we can do.
I'm going to suggest you to do an inground pool, because they are definitely a lot more beautiful. I wouldn't invest in stone tiles, maybe doing something out of slate that's really seamless and flush to the ground. What you're missing the most is a privacy fence. Create a living wall, and that means trees, trees, and trees. By then, a little bit more mature and you have that in inst fence that you're probably going to need.
Cypress make beautiful fences. They are so romantic and they definitely give you that kind of summer time, I want to sit by my pool under the arms. Then make your deck and tidal living right around your house. A nice grill, a couple of teak chairs, and the beautiful table along within umbrella to eat some of that blank space you have on the back of your house there would really break up the lines and creates some ambiance and interest. I hope all these tips help good luck at your trial.
