Today our pool was installed and we are happy with the pool itself, but are left wondering what options are out there for the surrounding area. Hopefully these pictures can show my problem better than I can explain it. Simply put, I need to go from a 14" deep by about 12 wide gap at one end of the pool to where it is level ground on the other side. I plan on putting a deck on one side that would contain one of the deep gap to level ground sides, although not until next year or 2012.
The tricky part is the installer said not to backfill the deep areas, as it would void the warranty. His recommendation was to line bricks up to the wall and fill in with gravel, with pavers in the middle if wanted.
I bring this up to the hive mind to shoot me some ideas, with pics preferred! Thanks for any help...
P.S. I did check out landscaping-sugejestion-t24513.html as someone else is experiencing the same thing, but wanted to start a new thread with my pictures.
