Hello all, glad I found this place!
Thanks to whoever is running it and the members for the great info I've already found here, much obliged.
Anyway, we just purchased an Intek 14' x 42" pool kit and I have been reading until my eyes bleed LOL.
In many threads, I have noticed that after clearing sod and first inch or two of topsoil to level the pool area, it is recommended to apply "nutgrass" killer.
I have never heard of this before and do not know if it is native to our area (Windsor, Ontario, Canada).
I have searched images of it and do not recall seeing it in this area.
I searched the Home Depots, Home Hardwares, etc, and cannot find any "nutgrass" or "nut sedge" killer.
Would Round Up or Killex type product suffice?
Also, I am older and although I have read the recommendations to remove the sod and top 1-2 inches of soil, I see many pictures of people erecting the pool directly on grass.
Besides the rotting grass smell, what other "negatives can I expect if I go this route; the yard is fairly level "as is" and it would save a lot of wear and tear on my already run-down heart and back.
Thanks in advance for any advice!
