Pool Remodel- Aka armageddon in the back yard

Here's what I have been up to recently:

Keep in mind it used to look like this:

Well it was looking a little fancy here from the fabulous Surfs Up Baby Shower for Keri and baby Joshie...

But with leaks, flooding and plaster coming up from the bottom of the pool it was time. I will let you know the progress. Just in time for summer right? We're putting in a fire pit, built in grill, and a bed! Woooo!!!

Here's some of my inspirations:

Love the plantings and fake grass!

Definitely doing Turquoise and apple green! Advice welcome! What should we do?

Quite the undertaking.
I am sure it will look grand once it is finished.
I grew up with an in ground pool. I was the one who had to clean it and vacuum it once or so a week. But that is back here in the Midwest where a pool is only used about 3-4 months out of the year.
We had to sandblast it and a rehab it a time or two.
All the best.
