Black pool

I wanted an inground pool, but can't find an interested builder (it's a small job). Anyway, now I'm looking at above ground pools but I really want to find a black one so it will blend in with my yard better. Is anyone here aware of a make/model that comes in black? Also, is there a way to hide the bright white rim on above ground pools? How difficult is installation, generally speaking? I am not handy in the least.

Hi welcome to TFP :)

I have no experience in above ground installations but I would thing landscape could camouflage anything. Why not inground?

The reason for not going inground is that there are no builders in my area who are available this year; two builders said I will likely have a hard time finding anyone because I want a very small pool maybe 10x12, 15' at most. They all tell me to buy a swim spa, which I really, really don't want.

The pool is going visible in my front yard, so I'm trying to avoid bright blue or bright white/cream. Black would be easiest for me to disguise with trees or something, as my fence is black.

I am by no means knowledgeable (I don't even have a pool yet) but on Pinterest I have seen pictures where the sides of the pool are cladded with decking.
