This backyard makeover was truly one for the record books, but in the midst of all that we did, our biggest challenge by far was moving a 22,000-lb. plunge pool from the street into the backyard. With limited driveway space, houses surrounding the one we were working on, and lots of power lines in the mix, we were all a little nervous.
It took two trucks and a giant crane to try and attempt this incredible feat and get it done in time for Christmas to surprise the homeowners...
The project actually got started when the homeowners were looking to install just a simple deck and the company they contacted gave them a 6-figure quote just for this piece of the project! With that in mind, they pivoted and decided to make the backyard of their dreams. Thankfully, we got to help make it happen in this Richmond home.
In addition to the plunge pool we added some extra drains to get rid of excess groundwater as well as a skimmer built right into the hardscape and built-in jets. The finishing touches? Landscaping, a beautiful flowing water feature, and a lot of pressure washing to get the backyard looking just right. Watch the video to see the results, and watch Part 1 below to see just how much it meant to these homeowners!
