She’s filled! Blue Surf is very turquoise under cloudy skies. The Pebble Sheen looks a little mottled and uneven (see photo of stairs below), but it’s not bad, and expected from what I understand.

I brushed the pool for the first time, whew what a workout. I didn‘t actually see any plaster dust though. It wasn’t sunny at the time, but I was expecting to see some cloudy water or residue as I was brushing.

It looks GREAT! What is the border between the coping and grass? I like the look.

Thanks! It’s small rocks held in by plastic edging. I wanted a barrier between the grass and the pool decking and coping. It looks good, but if I had to do it over again, I would have gone with larger pebbles. These tend to get flung around, mainly by my dogs running through them.
