When it comes to excavation work on Oahu, a backyard pool is a coveted tool for beating the tropical heat. If you’re in the process of building your own personal paradise, take advantage of these helpful tips from Tajiri Lumber on excavating ground for a pool:
- Soil Testing: Before diving into the excavation work, you’ll want to make sure the soil you’ll be digging into is prepared to handle an in-ground pool. If the immediate soil is not stable enough, the trained excavation team at Tajiri Lumber will have to dig deeper until they find a good foundation that won’t collapse. Before the excavation work begins, get the name and number of a soil testing lab just in case.
- Mind The Utility Lines: While you might be eager to begin work on your home’s newest addition, it’s important to remember some essential features of your home: your utilities. Before you give the okay to start on the excavation work, ask your utility companies to identify the paths of your gas and sewage lines so the pool construction doesn’t interfere with them.
- Hold Off On Landscaping: Excavation work is no small job, so you should be prepared for your backyard to reflect that. Hold off on any aesthetic improvements to your landscape, such as gardening, as the perimeter of the proposed pool area could be damaged during construction. If there are any objects in your backyard you wish to keep safe—birdhouses, hammocks, stepping stones—remove these before the excavation work begins.
