We're slated to start construction in November of an in ground, freeform vinyl liner pool with polymer walls. The plan is to do a paver decking and coping which the PB does not do on his own, we are subbing that out ourselves to the contractor we used for our patio. Would there be any harm - or conversely, any benefit - to allowing some time between completion of the pool and then the installation of the bullnose paver coping and paver decking? Especially since the pool will be completed in November-December (and not heated), I figure giving a few extra weeks or even a month or two for the surrounding backfilled ground to settle couldn't hurt; but I'm not sure of the possible ramifications of leaving the top of the pool walls and vinyl liner track exposed might be either. And of course I worry about rain making an absolute mess of the pool with exposed soil adjacent, but just trying to figure out (a) what is acceptable or (b) what is preferred.
