I just had an IG free form vinyl pool installed and I'm loving it. I have a 3' concrete deck all the way around and a brickstone patio is going in around 1/2 of the perimeter. The entire area will soon be fenced in as well.
Problem: my equipment pad for heater/pump/filter is about 2 feet from the deck edge and is in a highly visible entrance to the pool area. I would have preferred it to be hidden in the back but there was no way to move it due to the slope of my yard. I would like to screen this somehow, but I can't think of many options. The ground is currently a few feet deep with backfilled stone (no soil).
What's my best option to screen this and keep accessibility behind it for access to the valves and equipment? I was thinking of putting up a lattic and training something like clematis, but the ground has no soil.
