    Sunken AGP and grass/plants near pool

    Years ago I had an 18' round and the PB and installer both advised me to keep no vegetation within 3 feet around the pool. The pool was 1' sunk on the high side but level to the ground on the low side.

    My new pool is going to be sunk 2-2 1/2 feet. I know I still need to treat for vegetation under the pool but what about around the walls? Since its sunk so far is there a need to worry with the grass next to the wall?

    I see pics here of some sunken pools with a boundary of edging with mulch and plants inside the boundary and I want to do that but I don't want to cause problems for my pool. I have read in other threads that since vegetation (I have no trees in the yard with he pool) roots don't go that deep I really have nothing to worry about. Thoughts?

    Grass and plants right up to the edge is fine. Just be sure you treat the ground under it with nutsedge killer before putting it up.

    Cool. I was hoping that was the case. Thanks!
