going to go with the intex pool i was talking about in another post, thanks to everyone for the comments on that. So, well, next thing is we need the level area for it. Our garden is big enough but it's a lumpy, grassy mess so we're going to poison the grass and weeds in the area that's marked for the pool then build a small brick edging area, cover the internal area in portland cement then try to level it off with a water/cement powder mix. Does this sound okay, anyone have any experience of putting down a cement flooring ? Some people say sand is fine but everything on the intex site says sand is a no no and that concrete or level earth are much preferable (with concrete supposedly being the ideal).
Any help as to how to get things level, mixtures to use etc and general hints and tips much appreciated
