Trying to figure out what to do around your pool can be a challenge, pool deck pavers may be the solution you have been searching for. Pools pose special landscaping circumstances. You want your pool deck to look good but you also want it to be highly functional. Pavers are great solution because they look great and they are highly functional in this environment.
Grass is Not Great
A lot of people want to put grass around the pool as close as possible and leave just a little area for the deck, most pool experts will recommend to not do this. Grass can be a nightmare in a pool environment. It can easily get slick, it can be hard to grow because of the pool chemicals and it can wind up in your pool more times than not. Pavers take all that negative results away.
A lot of people worry that pavers will:
- Be slippery when wet
- Cause accidents
- Not hold up well to the pool environment
Yes pavers can get slippery when wet but there are special pavers that can reduce the effect and they are 100% safe to be used around pools. They are made for use specifically around wet environments. Pavers can actually prevent accidental slips and falls when the right types are used.
They hold up very well in the chemical laden environment. They do not deteriorate after prolonged exposure to pool chemicals.
