How do I makeover hole in yard


We just removed an above ground pool and deck. Any ideas on what to do with the huge hole rather than just filling with dirt?

    Have you thought of making a little rain garden? A rain garden captures water flowing through the yard and provides a place where it can easily be absorbed back into the ground. You can plant all sorts of pretty plants there. Here's more information --

    Level the area, add gravel and make a fire pit with seating around it. Add a bbq, a smoker, some lighting and a table.

    You could turn it into a small patio or privacy area. Put some weed block down and fill the hole with gravel. Level it. Add an outdoor rug, maybe add an arbor or small pergola, bistro set or outdoor swing. The possibilities are endless.

    Make stairs along the inner outside of hole leading down to a circular hidden patio/fire pit!

    Hi jk! Now's your opportunity to recreate a new recreational spot in your yard by adding concrete mesh, some gravel and then concrete to the round area where your pool sat. After the concrete cures, add lawn furniture, plants, and perhaps a rug to make an outdoor lounge spot.

    Maybe a Koi pond?

    I am confused, where is this hole if you removed an ABOVE GROUND pool. Just how deep is the hole above ground? ;)

    You might consider a bog garden. Easier and less maintenance than a pond.

    Years ago I removed an above ground pool and turned it into a flower garden. It took a few years to fill it up, but it is worth the time and effort.
