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?

Thanks!
