    Pool edging

    Can you please post a photo of your pool edging? I cannot make up my mind what to do... to use plastic edging or maybe some bricks or composite edging or maybe steel edging... too many choices

    My edging is a deck around 3/4 of the pool. The last side has (or will have) river rock.

    I do have rock around my pool. But I would like to separate grass from the rock so it look nicer

    Re: Pool edging

    Do you have above ground or in-ground pool? You posted this in above ground, so I assume it is an AGP. If you have rock around the pool already, I'd go with steel or plastic edging to contain the rock. and let the grass grow right up to the edge. I wouldn't do a wider border than that, but that's just me.

    steveg_nh's pool is the new Sharkline Barracuda series,only for those serious about relaxation. It's a partial bury.

    I've got natural 57's (basically river rock)with plastic edging around my pool,sorry I don't have a pic at the moment.Although it looks similar to this pool.

    Re: Pool edging

    I plan to use marine grade 67mm thick rope around the base of my rectangle pool, kinda going with a nautical theme. This will help hold the river rocks back from the very edges of my Intex liner, then my pool will be framed with embedded-into-the-ground railway sleepers to rest the legs of the pool on, and then I will artificial turf the 11m2 of space I have left.... I like the combination of wood, rock and grass....

    Yep! It needed to be done last year! I'm excited about having a more finished look. These projects are never done though! You always find something else to add or do.

    Re: Pool edging

    I do have AGP. Did anyone used bricks or some kind of rocks?
