COMPARING PRICES

Comparing apples to apples is just about impossible. In most cases we provide a scope of services that you would have to go multiple contractors to get the same scope of work completed. This is something anyone can do, but to do it correctly in a timely manner you need to have the right equipment and experience. Anyone can fill in hole, but the difference is the in the possibility of settling and impact/trauma to your property by the equipment being used. An excavation company may be cheaper, but they are not going to restore damage to your yard and will likely want to use over kill equipment causing unnecessary trauma to your property. Other landscape companies do not have the equipment or demolition knowledge to complete the project in safe timely manner without future issues.

COMMON QUESTIONS

Settling is the most common question asked. To date Mack Land, LLC has never had an issue with settling on a pool removal. Why? Because we fill in thin even layers and compact it evenly as we fill the pool in.

How long will it take?

Most in ground pool removals are completed in 3-7 days. Above ground pool removals are completed in one to two days.

Who gets the permits?

Mack Land, LLC will obtain all permit as part of our services.

How do we get started?

Mack Land, LLC will start the permit process with a signed contract and a copy of your plat of survey.

What is PGE?

PGE is a regional classification of coarse gravel. PGE is 6-8” minus recycled fractured concrete gravel with fines suitable for use as sub base for roads or for general structural fill. Mack Land, LLC will process all concrete
associated with the pool into PGE and use it as fill material.

What is better sod or seed?

Seed is by far the best way to go. Grass grown from seed will develop a more drought tolerant root system and blend into your existing lawn better. Also with sod it very possible to get grubs and other pests from the sod farm.

When do you need the project deposit?

Mack Land, LLC prefers to pick up the deposit check in person after the permits are approved. Mack will deliver the permits and pick up the deposit check at that time. The remaining balance is due on completion.

Littleton, Colorado Pool Removal

Fiberglass Shell Pool

After long deliberation, our client in Littleton, Colorado made the decision to remove the swimming pool in her backyard. While it held many memories, it was time for it to go.

This pool was a full fiberglass shell pool. We removed it entirely and then broke up the surrounding concrete walk. The concrete was broken down into small pieces and placed in the deep end as structural fill.

We brought in clean fill material and compacted as we went. For this project, we brought the area to rough final grade. A third party will be adding amendments to the soil and installing sod to finish it off.

Park Ridge, Illinois Pool Removal

All Concrete Pool

Park Ridge, Illinois is a highly sought after housing market. Our client purchased this house with the intent to fix it up as a rental. Removing the old, unused pool in the backyard was a big part in getting the house ready.

We broke up the all concrete pool and hauled it all offsite. Park Ridge, IL does not allow any part of the pool to be buried onsite. We also removed the concrete walk around the pool.

As we do with all our pool removals, we brought in clean fill material and compacted in layers. After bringing in pulverized topsoil, spreading grass seed and installing erosion control blanket, we finished the job and left the future renters with an expansive back yard.

Mack Land’s Pool Removal Process

OUR PROCESS

The process starts with two on staff landscape architects that work through all the various facets of your pool removal project such as: obtaining the permits, tree removals, irrigation conflicts, and can design build your future patio or landscape your entire back yard.

Our process goes above and beyond the typical village, city or county codes for pool removals. Most pool removal codes just require the bottom of the pool be perforated and the sides of the pool be removed 24” below grade, what we call a basic pool removal. Mack Land, LLC has developed the low impact method to complete pool removals in a safe and timely minor while reducing impact to your property.

The one thing that is significant about our pool removal process is that we are processing all concrete associated with the pool into a structural fill material classified as PGE, 8” minus recycled fractured concrete gravel with fines. This material is often used for sub base under public roads. Because we process the concrete associated with the pool into fill material, also called our low impact method, it reduces heavy truck loads of concrete out and then heavy truck loads of fill back in reducing trauma to your property and public roads.

The right equipment and the right size equipment is extremely important. Mack prefers to use two rubber tracked backhoe excavators that have an operating weight of around 12,000 lbs to complete the pool demolition work. Using a backhoe is key to completing the project safely and quickly. A skid steer/Bobcat can easily get stuck in the deep end of the pool or get damaged while removing the pool side walls because the machine does not have the reach to keep a safe distance. Most under qualified contractors will use a skid steer and say they have done it before but they will be risking their safety, and may struggle and cause unnecessary damage to their machine. There are also a lot of other contractors, like excavation contractors, that will give you a great price but will come with a 26,000 lb machine with steel tracks and cause unnecessarily trauma to your property and not worry about it because it is not their job to restore your yard.

Having the right equipment and the having the right approach are key to the success of the project.

Littleton, Colorado Pool Removal

Liner Pool with Concrete Bottom

Our client in Littleton, CO contacted us here at Mack Land last year about possibly removing their pool.  We understand that it is a big decision to cross the bridge to remove the pool in your backyard.  Especially now with COVID impacting public pools and social gatherings.  This year they were ready to see the pool go and increase their backyard space for the kids to play in.

The liner was already removed from the pool, so we started right in removing the pool steps and walls.  The concrete bottom and walk around the pool were broken up into small pieces and used as structural fill in the deep end.

We brought in clean fill dirt and compacted it in layers.  Our client opted for use to bring it to rough final grade for them to take over from there.  Now they can expand their lawn area for the kids to play in.

Spotlight Lyman Whitaker

Art in the garden is a great investment. It is often underestimated the value and character art adds to the landscape. Gardens and art go together like peanut butter and jelly.

 

 

After a pool removal we often get asked to replace the pool as a focal point.  If you are looking for low maintenance and low energy consumption, consider adding a sculpture piece.  Garden artwork from a well know artist is a better investment than a swimming pool from our perspective.  A great example of art that can give you something unique that no one else has are these wind sculptures by Lyman Whitaker.  This is an example kinetic art (art that depends on motion for its effects) by a well know artist whose work will hold its value.

 

 

Let Mack Land, LLC help you find the signature piece for your landscape.  Contact us to discuss your options.

Aurora, Colorado Fiberglass Shell Pool Removal

Fiberglass Shell Pool Removal

After recently purchasing and moving in, our client in Aurora, Colorado contacted us about removing the failing pool that dominated her backyard.

This fiberglass shell pool had seen better days.  With the freeze/thaw that winters in Colorado bring us and the close proximity of a mature pine tree and its roots, the pool had lifted and shifted.  The previous owners had addressed the issue with Great Stuff foam.

The back yard was a very tight area to work in.  That’s where our specialty with working with compact experiment really comes into play.

After removing the fiberglass shell entirely and disposing of it offsite, we broke up the surrounding concrete patio that covered the rest of the back yard.

We brought in clean compactable fill material and brought the back yard to grade.  Our client opted to have us stop at this point.  She wanted to get a feel for the backyard and determine what she wanted to do next.  Lawn, extend the patio, planting beds?  With the pool removed, her backyard looked as though it had doubled in size.

Denver, Colorado Pool Removal

Fiberglass Shell Pool Removal

After starting one pool removal in Denver, Colorado, the neighbors next door were curious as to what we were doing.  Once they learned we were removing the pool and how we have streamlined the process, they signed up to have their pool removed as well.

Their pool was a fiberglass shell pool that the homeowner and his father had installed many years ago.  The family had enjoyed the pool for many years but it had not been used recently.  They had been unsure of what to with the pool and the backyard in general and it was perfect timing that we were working right next door.

As with all fiberglass shell pools, we removed the pool entirely and hauled it offsite.  We broke up the concrete walk around the pool and used it as structural fill in the bottom.  Clean, compactable  fill material was brought in.  We brought the area to grade and the homeowner is planning on sodding the area.  The backyard doubled in size for usable space, their dog will love the extra room to run.
