I have a smaller yard and we are starting our pool dig next week. Right now, the plan is for a 14x30 pool that runs parallel to the house. There is a 6.5 ft wide bottleneck area between the pool and the house for a 10 ft stretch. Of the bottleneck area, 1.5 ft wide is a green space with plantings which will also serve as a drainage area for any rainwater, etc. That leaves 5 ft in width between the green area and the pool. So here's my dilemma: should I add another foot in pool width (making it 15x30) and reduce the walkway width to 4 ft in the bottleneck or should I keep the walkway 5 ft. wide through this 10 ft bottleneck and keep the pool at 14x30? We have plenty of patio space elsewhere so this bottleneck area will always remain free of any obstacles.
