Last year we put in the aboveground pool and this year is the landscaping. We are planning on putting hostas around the back side of the pool and around the deck and walkway. Our backyard is on the slight slope so when they put the pool in there is about a 2 foot gap between the pool and grass which is also about a 2 foot drop. I have no clue what to do with this area. It is constantly collecting leaves in there. Here are some pictures to show what I'm trying to explain.
