    retaining wall

    When installing a vinyl or fiberglass pool partially above ground, would the retaining wall go up before or after the pool set? Thanks

    Welcome to TFP!

    It's probably going to depend on how far from the pool it is. It would be hard to build if you couldn't work between the pool and the wall after the pool goes up. Soil conditions may make it necessary to do it quickly in some cases.

    I worked on mine the entire time they were building my pool, but my wall began at about 6' from the pool.
