With everyone being at home, having pools installed is very popular this year. Many pool companies that we work with, are booked through the rest of the summer and beyond installing pools. In addition to installing a pool, something else you’ll want to add is a beautiful patio around it for lounging and entertaining purposes. There are a variety of hardscaping material to use around the pool and when deciding what the best option is, there are a few things you want to think about.
- It doesn’t get slippery when wet. This could cause many injuries that you shouldn’t have to deal with.
- The material doesn’t get too hot from the sun beating down on it.
- It is a product that can handle the water and chemicals constantly splashing on it.
There are a vast variety of materials for you to choose from, below are a few choices.
In just the natural stone alone there are a vast variety of types. Many of which are nonslip and water resistant. They also come in a variety of colors and shapes so creating a unique patio around your pool will not be a problem! One thing you want to remember to do is have them sealed on a yearly basis to protect them from the chemicals and water.
Concrete Pavers are a great option for a pool patio. There are a variety of colors and sizes and are durable around pools. It may also save you some money in retrospect to the natural stone option. Also, as long as installed properly, concrete pavers will require less maintenance and repair. However, if a paver does crack, it can easily be replaced.
