We ordered a new and larger backyard swimming pool a while back, and it has now been delivered and waiting for us to set it up in the back yard. The most level place on the property is right outside the back door, where it was once leveled and graveled as part of the driveway. There are no trees right there either for leaves and bugs to fall into the pool, and it is easy to get to; so that is where the pool is scheduled to be set up. The old pool was under 3' tall, so I could step into it; but this one is almost 4', so I will need a small deck to stand on first, and then put the ladder inside for me to climb down with. The back door has only some ugly old concrete steps and an old railing that @Bobby Cole built for me to hold onto walking down the steps, so it is due for an upgrade in any case. We are looking at making a small deck out the back door and then the pool will be at the end of the deck, and then either steps or a small ramp that goes down into the yard along the side of the pool. The pool will literally be right out the back door; but that is not a bad thing, and will be close and easy for us to get in and out of to go swimming every day this summer. It will not be any different for going down into the back yard, just a different direction, and probably actually easier. Both Chipper and I have a terrible time going up and down the back steps anyway, so having a short ramp there will make it a lot easier for us to go out into the yard as well. We are still in the planning part; but I think that it will be awsome once we have the pool set up ! !
