Looks really nice :goodjob:

Too bad there is such a gap between the large step pavers. I can not think of an easy way to change it though ... might be kind of an ankle hazard after a few beverages at night.

Of course you noticed the one last thing on my to do list:) , I have been searching around on how to fill those gaps, and there is something called gator dust, basically a mixture of gravel and polymeric sand.

Thanks for the info, they were pretty thick, so I wasn't sure if I could cut them. The gap actually looks larger in the picture, it is not even 2" at the widest point, but if I get motivated I will probably try and do something with them.

Here are a couple more pics of my poor mans inground pool.

That is one Impressive looking setup you have there!

Job Well Done! :goodjob:

As for the spaces between the bricks, I would look into soemthing like grout to fill them, you should be able to find something in a color that would accent what you have done already, kill 2 birds with one stone.

Personally I wouldn't dig them all out and start over.

Here's to many Happy hours of enjoyment in your new Oasis! :cheers:

Pool looks great!! We also have a round Radiant and I'm currently trying to figure out what sort of deck to put up around it. I like how you used the pavers at the lip of the pool. Was there reasoning behind that or was it purely aesthetic?

Also, did you paint the concrete with anything?
