First time pool owner and I am clueless.
We had a 24 ft round Quantam Resin Pool installed about a week or so ago by Pool City.
Our yard is sloped so we had to have 36" excavated from one side down to the level portion where we have the pump and steps.
they told us that once the pool was filled that we should cover the bottom rails with 6 in of dirt at a 45 degree angle.
I would like to put approx. 18" of river rock around the base of the pool to create a barrier between the grass and the pool so we don't have a weed issue and don't have to mow close to the pool. I also figured this would give it a clean look and cut down on erosion of the sand etc since our yard is sloped.
I have looked at a few dozen forums and pics etc. and no one has mentioned putting dirt back around the pool.
What should I do?
If I put the 6 in of dirt then cover with landscape fabric or weed blocker and then cover with river rock will it be too high?
Can I skip backfilling the dirt and just use rock?? either way I think I will need an edger around the perimeter of the rock bed to keep them contained
