Flatten hillside to install swimming pool?

March 5th, 2011 § 2 comments

We have a large uphill slope in our backyard. There is a 5 ft retaining wall “holding up” the hill. The hill is about 30×100 feet. We thought it would be an interesting idea to dig up a section of the hill, maybe 10×20, and install an inground swimming pool. Of course we would then have to install a new retaining wall behind the pool, maybe 10 feet high.

Is this something that’s possible? Anyone have any experience trying to install a pool in a hill? Any ballpark estimate of cost?

Thanks for the advice.
