    I have a customer who has a similar setup for their pool. What they did was dig and pour concrete where the anchors go. They tapered the concrete so at the surface it is only about 4" or so across and is level with the dirt so you can't see it with the grass around it. you just see a 4" circle with no grass every 4' or so around the perimeter.

    Might have to sell her that in the fall... Maybe use a traffic cone for a form

    If I remember it right, they put a piece of 1/2" galvanized pipe in it so that the force from the cover when covered in snow will be dispersed into the lower parts of the form which are thicker. If you go that route just be sure the pipe goes all the way through the form to a stone base for drainage.

    I like the walkway to the front of the house and the color is different than we have around here.
