The backfill is now in and we have vibrated the soil with a compactor, then laid down a steel mesh with steel reinforcing bars with the screed on top.

The picture below has the man pointing out the shower drain to the left of the gate way.

I think 4 blocks high around the pool is enough but it might be sensible to raise the BBQ area at least 2 or 3 more block for wind protection. I will also install two low plug sockets on the BBQ wall.
