I was just looking over our online “eBook” library and I have to say —

Pool Construction - Pool Safety - Fort Myers - Naples Florida

WOW!  We have got quite the library of helpful information – from pool service & pool safety tips to pool renovation ideas to creating the ‘ultimate outdoor environment’ it’s in there!

Over the years, I’ve met with thousands of families, parents, and couples who have asked such wonderful questions.

I’ve helped dozens in times of need turn what was a not-so-good situation (a dark green, moldy, mildew infested pool, for example) into a dream outdoor experience…

But one of the most powerful things we started doing a few years ago (A BIG thank you to my friends and Internet Marketers at ISG!) was creating helpful eBooks that have truly empowered so many people.

With everything we create, we try to:

  • thoroughly answer the questions we receive,
  • provide thoughtful direction – hints and tips on creating and maintaining the best environment, and
  • assure you’re learning from all of the lessons we’ve learned over the years!

If you’ve met me, or my team, you know we want nothing more than the safest, happiest, and most fun outdoor environment for you, your family and friends.  That’s our mission! 😉

Please let me know how you think we’re doing, OR if you have any questions or ideas on what we can help you with, please send them to us too, either by commenting below, or Contacting Us on our website!

Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to help you, I truly appreciate it.

How are you supposed to enjoy your ultimate backyard environment if  your palm trees are turning black like this?

Imagine that you worked your whole life and socked away money in order to purchase your dream home in Southwest Florida.

You spend a lot of time and money designing the perfect home, complete with a gorgeous back yard setting…your own slice of heaven!

Imagine that your backyard is complete with a newly renovated swimming pool that comes with fountains, deck jets, and waterfalls.

You also took the time to carefully map out your landscaping features and had them installed by experts.

After a few weeks of enjoying your new home, you notice that your palm trees are turning white and then black and wilting!

Why are my palm trees dying?

That’s a great question and it’s one that had my team and I baffled. As we were out servicing pools, we kept noticing more and more palm trees that were turning black with a white, sticky substance on them (as pictured above).
