I got the intex ultra frame 22x52. I would like to decorate the surroundings by adding mulch, or pine straw, or decorative stones.
My question is what is the best option according to your experience. I've heard that mulch can bring pests (termites or ants). Also get blow, and if it gets into the pool the color can ruin the water and, etc, etc. But is a cheap solution, that's why I have been considering this option as #1. From your experiences what are the pros and cons.
I don't know what would be the difference with pine straw. Could you provide the differences from the mulch.
Decorative stones sounds like a good idea, but I dont know what quantity should I order and how much it will cost. I think it will be pricey. If you have experience could you provide some cost and quantity estimations according to my pool size. I would like a 2 feet border from the pool sides.
I have attached an image with a nice decorative store I have in mind.
Thank you for your advise.
