I am in the process of designing our pool. We have decided on a vinyl, steel wall pool and we live in Ohio. I would like to create a pond look and would like to have stone outcropping around some of the pool edges. I am struggling with finding someone who has done this, and who knows the logistics. First, does the weight of the stones on the edge of the pool cause a problem with the pool structure? Second, if I can achieve the look I want, how do I cover it in the winter without causing "dead space" and gaps from the stones along the edges? Any help and info is appreciated! I don't want to give up my vision, but I don't want to compromise the pool structure or safety.
