Thank you for saying this. I feel the same whenever I've been in a pebble pool and have always sworn I'd just get quartz if I built another pool. Not like Quartzscapes because that is kind of like sandpaper, or at least the samples are, but the modified plaster with quartz crystals. That's always been my plan but there's like this pressure to get pebble. I like the color options of it but I think I will be mad at myself if I get pebble. Plus, I think of my 21 month old grandson playing on the Baja step and I can see him scraping his knee on the pebble. Everyone just looks at me weird for not wanting pebble and then I second guess myself.Gimme smooth as a baby's bottom plain plaster if I ever build another pool. I find all those stones horrible painful to walk on.
