We are currently having a gunite pool built. The project has not been well run. It has actually been much tougher than we expected. Right now, the coping and tile is being installed. After that, we just need the final hookup done for the plumbing and electric and then hydrazzo. We have contracted with the PB to have paver decking installed and we also need some retaining walls. Our PB is having some scheduling issues with his paver contractors. We were thinking about asking him to finish the pool and then do the grading and paver work after the pool is completed and filled. The PB spread out the fill from the dig over the area where the decking will go. The paver contractor wants to remove the fill to get back to the original grade and then add gravel to build it back up.
We want to make sure we don't create any issues requesting this approach and we are newbies to all of this. What are the pros/cons to doing the final grading and pavers before the pool is complete compared to after?
Thanks for your help!
