We had our pool put in last October, so this is the first Summer we've been able to enjoy it, but we're still working on all the landscaping around it. We put an ornamental aluminum fence around the pool and currently just have dirt (with weeds) between the concrete decking and the fence.
We want to put Colorado River rock in that space and then extend the rock to about 12-18 inches outside of the fence.
I've been told to put down landscape fabric first, then put some smaller rock (pea gravel or drainage rock) on top of that as a base, and THEN put our river rock on top of that.
But while doing research I've read people say not to put rock on top of landscape fabric.
Any thoughts? Does anybody have a similar setup, and if so, what has been your experience?
Anything else I might need to keep in mind or consider? Thanks.
