    Pool coping recommendations/suggestions needed

    This is our small self-built pool. We were thinking to use 12" wide bluestone, but with the golden pebble liner, I am concerned the blue/grey would detract rather than enhance the turquoise water color the liner creates. Stepstone's square modular coping series has some nice tan shades. Is there a natural stone that would provide a more brown/tan color spectrum instead of greys? We are going country style, so beyond the coping will be grass.

    Thanks so much for any suggestions or commentary.

    Nice DIY. I like the tan travertine I have seen on peoples builds.

    Another vote for travertine.

    Also, would love to see photos of your build!

    Thanks. I did some googling on travertine, and it is a fantastic match for what I am envisioning. For some reason I thought travertine may not be wise in an area with freezing winters. Is that a problem or am I making that up? I am in upstate NY.

    Also I did a horrible job of taking photos during the construction. I have one of the excavator, then one backfilled but no liner, and now liner installed. Regardless, I will put together a build post, I just wish I had done a better job with the photo documentation.
