I Hired You to Pimp My Backyard …
Now It’s All Screwed Up!!!

Xzibit and his wife are gunning for the guys they hired to build them a luxurious backyard oasis … claiming they screwed it all up, and didn’t even finish the job.
Xzibit says the folks at Edge Water Construction were supposed to install a brand new pool, outdoor spa, fire and water feature wine bar, backyard cabana and a bunch of other sweet items. Total cost was supposed to be $397k.
But according to a lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, Edge Water took much longer than initially scheduled to do the job … and much of what they got done was defective. For instance, X-to-the-Z says the pool had sharp edges which cut his 8-year-old son’s feet.
In the suit, he says parts of the pool and spa weren’t properly waterproofed — which seems like job #1 when building a pool.
Xzibit and the missus are suing for $250k. For its part, Edge Water tells us they only stopped working because Xzibit told them he wasn’t going to pay them the $178k he still owed. They say he demanded to see their receipts, and when they refused he cut off the funding … and they walked.
Edge Water says they stand by their work, and say an independent inspector also signed off on it.
