Have you recently purchase a house with an old pool that hasn’t been opened in years? Has the pool in your backyard seen better days? Is your liner ripped or the plaster cracked? Are you wondering if there is a chance of Bringing Life Back to an Old Pool? Perhaps the time has come to remove it?
Bringing Life Back to an Old Pool – First Steps
The first step with concrete or gunite pools is to drain the water to best assess the situation. Depending on how long it has been sitting, you may need to clear out leaves and other debris as well. With vinyl liner and fiberglass pools, there is some risk involved with draining the pool. Fiberglass pools are lightweight and can move or float without the weight of the water holding it in place. Vinyl liners can shrink and shift.
If you opt to not drain the pool completely and the water is questionably green, time and effort can bring it back to clear. A process of removing all the organic debris, cleaning the sides and bottom, checking the water balance, shocking the pool and filtering the water can bring it back.
Alternatively, you can fill the pool with new water. We recommend using a water truck service. You can fill the pool from your hose but that takes time and with well water, you may be filling the pool with water high in minerals or metals.
Now you move on to the repairs. Concrete or gunite pools can have stains, rough texture, or leaks. All of these should be addressed and repaired prior to resurfacing. The pool will need to be prepped for the new surface, this can be achieved through sand blasting or hydro blasting. Then the pool surface finish material can be installed.
With vinyl liner pools, you may need to install a new liner. You may need new faceplates and gaskets as well.
So, as you can see there are many pros and cons as well as many decisions to be made about Bringing Life Back to an Old Pool. We have been involved in the Denver Pool Removal business for many years. Please contact us for the best advice.

We consulted with a structural engineer for the best fill material to use to provide a structurally sound floor to support interior load bearing walls that are going to support a second floor. Aggregate with a rock slinger/conveyor truck was used to fill the pool. We were able to send it in through an opening, creating a ramp into the pool to bring the compaction equipment in.

Do you want to improve your rental property’s landscaping?
As a landlord, you have many responsibilities. Finding ways to prioritize your tasks is the key to efficient management. However, landscaping is a relatively important task that tends to get less attention.
While collecting rent and conducting property repairs are crucial, Bighorn Rentals says, it’s important you find time to maintain and upkeep the exterior of your property too. Upkeeping the outside of your rental is important because it will preserve and increase the value of your investment.
In this article, we will list the main do’s and don’ts of landscaping your rentals. You’ll learn the top tips for boosting your rental property’s curb appeal and your tenants’ satisfaction.
Here are the Things you Want to DO:
DO Comply with Local Rules
You need to check your local laws on any restrictions that might apply to your rental property’s landscaping. For instance, some neighborhood guidelines restrict you from hardscaping more than a certain square footage.
DO Designate a Pet-Friendly Space
Do you allow pets in your rental property? If yes, you should designate a separate section of the lawn for them. You can use fencing or other markers to set strict boundaries for this space. Use pea gravel or mulch to cover the pet-friendly turf.
DO Ensure Proper Drainage
Large stones, landscaping timbers, and retaining walls can block drainage in your rental property. Make sure to remove any obstacles that increase the risk of drainage issues. Plus, regularly maintain the landscaping to fix any drainage problems before they become more costly.
If you have large trees, keep a minimum distance of 30 feet. If you have small trees, keep them at least 10 feet away from the property’s foundation. As the trees grow, their roots grow, too. This means that the structural integrity of your rental property could be in danger if you don’t consider this distance.
DO Plant Local Varieties and Perennials
You’ll save money on expensive fertilizers and complicated irrigation if you opt for local plant varieties. For instance, consider purchasing regional flowers. These will cost you less money compared to exotic ones. Not to mention, your ecological impact will lessen as well.
Additionally, consider planting perennials in your rental property’s yard. This type of plant demands less water and care. This is a great choice, especially if your rental is in an area that experiences frequent droughts.
Here is What you DON’T Want to Do:
Now that we’ve considered what you should do, here are some of the things you want to avoid.
DON’T Install Excess Paving
Most tenants love to have greenery surrounding their home. For this reason, don’t install too much paving. This can hurt the aesthetics and decrease tenant satisfaction. Plus, excess paving increases the potential for flooding and mold growth.
DON’T Add too Many Water Features
Water features such as fountains and cascades are a beautiful and serene addition to any yard. However, these features demand a lot of upkeep and result in a more expensive water bill. You should only consider these features if you have an upscale rental property.
DON’T Neglect the Lawn
Mow the lawn on a regular basis. If you only have enough time to tackle one landscaping duty, this is the one you should choose because unkempt lawns hurt the curb appeal and reduce tenants’ quality of life.
DON’T Pick Niche Design Solutions
Personalized landscaping design schemes work for individual homeowners. That said, you should keep your rental properties more neutral. This will help to attract and retain quality tenants. If you cater to the average taste, you’ll be safer. Unusual choices could potentially increase your vacancies.
DON’T: Waste too Much Water
Consider installing a smart sprinkler. This digitally backed system will reduce water waste in your rental unit. You can pre-program the system to water the lawn at specific times and choose the maximum water output.
In a Nutshell: Rental Property Landscaping Dos and Don’ts
As a landlord, you shouldn’t ignore your rental property landscaping needs. While you may always have more urgent tasks at hand, it’s important that you find ways to conduct regular landscaping maintenance and improvements.
In general, here are some takeaway points to up your rental’s landscaping game:
Refrain from personalizing or niche designing solutions.
Follow spacing requirements between trees and the property’s foundation.
Regularly check whether the property has efficient drainage.
Install a smart sprinkler system for eco-friendly irrigation.
Plant local varieties and perennials in the yard.
Reconsider any advanced water features.
Research and comply with local regulations.
Consider opening a pet-friendly space.
Avoid the installation of excess pavement.
Finally, if you’re limited on time, always prioritize mowing the lawn. This will make the yard look fresh, attractive and cared for.
