We used to have a swimming pool. We did not like to swim or spend so much money to keep the pool clean, it takes lots of money and time to keep it clean. I suggested we have it filled up with dirt so I could have a garden, We had it filled up, I had a very pretty garden all the year, very good idea.

To make a garden in the swimming pool you have to hire someone with a large truck to haul dirt to fill up the pool then you have a garden. Leave the walk way around the pool. It makes a good walk way while working in the garden, and also leave the diving board. It makes a good work bench or a place for flowers in pots. Good luck.
My parents did the same thing. When they retired, they agreed to buy a place on the condition the existing pool would be filled in! Loved the house & grounds, just not the pool.
