Got a freebie AGP last year (THANK YOU CRAIGSLIST). Worked great. Did a poor install.... WAY UNLEVEL!!!! probably by a foot. <---- It didn't "fail" and we didn't die... So we got that going for us....
Bought a 18x9 and plan to do a proper install this year. As noted we are slightly unlevel in the area we want to put this. I will "dig it down" to the proper level, but based on the recommendations I have seen on this website I am looking for a little help, as I would like this to be a permanent install - versus my half *** job last year.
This is my current "plan"... if you can call it that!
Digout a "level" space that is within a 1' of what I need.
Get a few yards of decomposed granite - from a local yard (or even better it looks like some people on Craigslist are gifting it) - An inch or less of DG total hopefully to keep it easy and cheap.
Get a plate tamper to pack it down
Throw down a small amount of sand for the ultimate in levelness?
Carpet - indoor/outdoor that we have left over from last year for under the pool
Tarp - what was provided for the "under pool cover"
Stick the pool feet on pavers
Does anybody see any issue with this/suggestions on what I am doing wrong?
Only thing I see that I might want to do is stick some pressure treated lumber around the edge to hold in the DG? Or am I wasting my time/money with such a little amount of DG? The dirt under the DG has been there for eons.
