It seems every time I start talking to my wife about the work we are going to be doing on our pool at the end of this month, she seems to come up with something else she wants to do...
So, we have the standard concrete bullnose coping installed around our pool now, and from the feel of some of them, they won't be difficult to remove LOL. Here is a pic for reference.
What she has decided she wants is a natural stone coping around the pool, which I think would look nice. The problem comes in, when I don't want to pay anyone to do it for me LOL. If it's going to get done, I want to do it myself. I guess the question I have is, do I need to purchase stone specifically made for pool coping? Or can I go to the stone place down the road from my house and buy a bunch of stone to mortar around the pool? We like the natural or chiseled edge look of stone. Also, when putting this stuff down, what are any problems to look out for that might not be obvious for someone doing coping for the first time?
Thanks for any tips, hints, critiques or lewd remarks
