What's next? Well, it is a little hard to tell in the picture but we are not super happy with the coping edge along the steps so we need to see what they can do to fix that. Then they will be putting some of the ledger stone underneath the lip of those steps. They will be putting the smooth coat finish on the bench wall, and painting it. There is still the finishing up of the concrete, some saw cuts, and mastic. Then they can plaster the pool and fill it up. The rest of the yard is up to the "in-house" landscapers. We (meaning Don and me....and whatever child labor we can harness) will be putting in some new sprinklers, bringing in some good dirt, mulch, we have a little patch of sod to lay. After that the fun part....some new plants to spruce up the place. Then we need lighting, furniture.....ok we still have alot to do, but it is nice that we can start walking around out there without tracking in so much dirt!
