This Month's Featured Pool

Happy Thanksgiving 
We all know that this is the time of year to be thankful for family, friends, and all the blessings we have received. But, it's also a great time to look back at that list of home projects that didn't get done.
As you celebrate the upcoming holidays with the ones you love, start thinking about your 2016 project wish list.  In this issue we have highlighted some new products, as well as two projects you might like to try.
I am truly thankful for all of you and hope you and your family enjoy a very happy Thanksgiving!

This remodel included installation of Leonardo Travertine in a French pattern over the existing cracked concrete deck. We also installed Leonardo Travertine coping after cutting off the existing bull nose coping.  Along with a resurface of the entire pool using Pebble Tec Caribbean Blue, we installed a new pump/filter/Jandy wireless automation system and salt system. 


Easy to Assemble Garden Fountains
A garden fountain can relax the soul as well as cover up unpleasant noises in your neighborhood.  Depending on your style, garden fountains can be made out of almost anything.  This Old House does a great job of showing you how to assemble these in a small amount of time and on a small budget.

For that rustic look, you can take an old urn and turn it into a beautiful feature in your yard.

For a more Zen-like feel, you can transform a pile of rocks into a calming oasis.
