we had a large steel wall pool installed last summer and are planning to have a patio installed. We are going with pavers but hear conflicting ways of installing them. We live on Long Island NY so I waited to go through the winter for the ground to settle, which it surely did. I am going towards putting the pavers over poured concrete at least 4' out from the pool and the larger area may be put on crushed stone. I'm told the concrete slab will bridge between the coping shelf and the undisturbed soil. Problem is that all the paver manufacturers recommend putting them on crushed stone. I would appreciate any thoughts so I can avoid an argument with the boss (my wife) She says crushed stone.
In addition we have a salt water pool if that matters
