    Landscaped around AGP

    I know some folks aren't big fans of mulch on here but I really love how this turned out.

    Pools are like homes, cars, and just about anything else out there in that if you line-up 50 people and ask them to show you their favorite style, you'll get 50 different answers. I think you have a very nice set-up, and it's obvious you put quite a bit of thought and work into that project. Kudos to you!

    Fantastic deck work, lighting, and décor. I also like the big flip-flops on the wall. You'll have to post some pics later this year when it's all buried in a blanket of snow.

    Very nice! How many yards of mulch did it take, if you don't mind my asking?

    I actually purchased the Scotts Black Mulch from Home Depot. I find that works better than the mulch delivered (color stays much longer). I bought 30 bags for $81 and had plenty of mulch to go all around.

    Another pretty cool thing that my wife found on pinterest....Instead of the same old towel hooks she got boat cleats and painted them... pretty neat and get a ton of compliments... This pic is taken last year before the deck staining.

    Mulch seems fine as long as you have decking. I think it looks great! I like the 2 tier deck and your furniture.
