maintenance for a pool if there's
not a lot of trees around or you
don't have many guests," explains
Barbara. "We have both, but it's
the shedding pine needles and
seeds that constantly require
cleaning up around the pool."
The Kaplans use a solar cover
to help maintain a warm water
temperature for their 20' by 40'
pool. Barbara does all of the
maintenance including hosing the
solar cover, brushing down the
walls to prevent algae and dirt
build-up, vacuuming the pool and
using chemicals. She finds it very
relaxing, like puttering around a
garden. About two years ago they
built a new structure between the
pool and the cabana to house a
bar, changing room and a storage
room.
The tennis court was already
built when the Kaplans bought the
house. Barbara states that there's
not much maintenance to the
court other than sweeping it when
you want to use it and resurfacing
it every eight years or so.
"We love it when our friends and
their families join us for a summer
weekend, afternoon or evening,"
says Barbara. "The older kids will
play tennis or basketball on the
tennis court; there's a basket hoop
on one side. The younger ones
linger around the pool area. It's
wonderful. We don't have a boat;
we don't belong to a club. And
when there's no kids, it's like adult
camp.
