    Other than personal taste, are there any advantages of river Jack vs Mexican beech pe

    15x30x52 ago with side deck.
    Looking to put this the perimeter of the pool add well as under the deck. Using landscape edging, then landscape fabric, then the stone.

    Deciding between the 2 and since we know nothing about this, figure I'd ask before deciding in case there were advantages of one vs the other for this application.

    Thx

    As far as I know, rock is rock. You want rounded rocks, so it's easier on bare feet because you know somebody will knock something out of the pool. And you don't want pea gravel, because it will stick to wet feet. And you pretty much want stuff that's unlikely to take a fly when you're weedwacking along the border, so they have to be pretty good sized. Otherwise, it's a matter of taste.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
