I know a lot of people bury AGP and I've always wondered if that shortens the life of the walls by causing rust.
My AGP is not buried. I'm trying to find an ECONOMICAL way to landscape around it. I can't afford a lot right now but would like some other than the dirt ring around the pool. The ground is slightly uneven around it with one side about an inch higher (the level of the ground).
I'm considering mulch, but concerned it may hold too much moisture around the bottom couple of inches of the pool wall.
I've also thought about gravel but don't have a cheap source around here and don't want white gravel that will discolor and show up stray blades of grass that get blown on it after mowing.
Any suggestions for the most economical way to 'pretty up' around the pool? I have a deck about 8 feet wide on one side but other than that, there's nothing else around the pool (except for the pump/filter).
