    Can I use Travertine Tile in my Pool?

    We are picking out the tile for around the waterline of the pool. We have found some travertine tile that we would like to use, however my wife had heard that it is not good to use marble/travertine under the waterline because it will breakdown. Has anyone here had experience with Travertine...

    What Kind of Grass to use in FL?

    Great website! The grass at the ball fields are bermuda grass, but it sounds like that is not recommended for residential applications. It sounds like Zoysia is what we are looking for. If anyone has had this grass I would be interested to hear if they liked it or not. Thanks,

    What Kind of Grass to use in FL?

    Our pool is going to have a raised grass area framed in coping as a deck. I would like to use something besides St. Augustine because it's so uncomfortable to walk/sit on. Does anyone have any suggestions. I like the type of grass they use at the ball fields here, but I don't know what kind...

    How do I build this Coping?

    Now that I had a cup of coffee and few more minutes to think about I'll add 2-3' of pavers next to the pool on the raised grass deck. That way I can still keep the look of the grass but not have as many issues w/ the grass clippings, plus that will be the high traffic area so less lawn...

    How do I build this Coping?

    Yeah, we were concerned about that, so we are putting river rock around the big 4x4 stepping stones, and putting pavers where the garden boxes are but plan on leaving the grass on the deck area. We're in Florida and trying to find a slow growing grass different from St. Augustine. If it gets...
