So long story, but we did not have the budget for a "hidden" auto cover and my wife was quite happen with the fence. Now that the pool is done, she is refusing to get a fence (almost caused us to get divorced).
Now she got her parents to give her a loan to get a cover...but of course we can't do the hidden cover as the pool/coping/concrete deck is done.
The only option is the above grade cover...and I really hate how they look.
HOWEVER, knowing this forum, I know there has to be systems that look better than others. I've tried searching, but it was taking forever, so hoping that someone can show me a few options, etc.
