    landscaping around AGP

    I've seen a few pics but was wondering if plantings next to the pool would die due to pool water splash off? I am thinking of planting ornamental grasses next to our pool in the rock section. We have already put in sod and finished the bed next to the garage.[attachment=0:143ju0xd]Copy of Picture 027 (2).jpg[/attachment:143ju0xd]

Doughboy PowerPak II pump, 1 hp. Pentair MinimaxCH 150m natural gas heater. Polaris 65 when it feels like working . TF-100 test kit. No longer 'pool stored' 5 years and counting. In sunny but fickle metro-Detroit.

    If you end up converting to a Salt pool someday, you might just be aware of plants that are very salt sensitive.
    Otherwise, there is no worry about splash out.

    Thanks for mentioning that Brushpup. We do put some salt and borates in the water just for the feel, so I will have to keep the type of plants in mind.

    We've done an alternating planting around our 33ft AGP with Hosta's and Tiger Lily's..they can take pretty much any weather, and any water condition and still bloom and look nice each year..with little to no pruning needed.
    33' x 52" Swim and Play Inc. PARAGON AGP. Hayward H200 Heater. Hayward Power-Flo LX 1.5hp pump. Sta-Rite Cristal Flo T-210WF Sand Filter. Stenner 45M5 chlorine pump
