Will try to keep it short. Have been lurking for a long time and posting on another site. This one seems to have more action.....so here it goes!

Coping: OK Flagstone
We upgraded to SWCG and switched to Tennessee Flagstone. Also changed to a 2 speed pump.
Took it to just under 43K.
I've now asked the PB if we should look at LED's and extending the Tenn Flag coping from 12" to 18" - the pool is surrounded by grass with no decking except the front.
He said the LED's are pretty nice, but only I would know if it was worth the nearly 2k upgrade for 3 of them (1 spa, 2 pool).
He also said to go from the 12" to 18" would cost an extra $1,400, but he didn't comment on wether he thought it was necessary.
What are your thoughts? Are LED's worth it and should I switch to the 18" coping?
Here is a youtube render of the pool so you can see layout and yard. The mountains in the 3d render are MUCH nicer than the mountains in my backyard here in Dallas Texas!
Thanks for any and all advice!
