It can be tough to choose between having a lawn or a swimming pool in your backyard, at least in a first world problems kinda way, but one homeowner discovered a way to bring the best of both worlds to his backyard.

Engineer and backyard enthusiast Gil Klar installed a sliding astroturf deck that looks like a lawn when closed, but slides back at the touch of a button to reveal a full sized in-ground swimming pool hidden underneath.

Gil was nice enough to share a video of how he created this amazing backyard engineering marvel, and it looks so easy to make that anybody can do it! On second thought...

Where is the protective fencing? Most states require a kid-proof fence around in-ground pools. Who's to say that someone won't forget to cover the pool (or the mechanism will malfunction) or lose track of a curious or clumsy kid?
