    IT'S GOON-a happen....
    most of the lawns that i do with pools i end up with pre-m on the cover...just need to blow as much off as you can...
    most covers are that dark green and i never had it stain...

    make sure your spreader has the deflector down and if you don't have one on it get one:angel:

    you are going to get it in the pool also....we all do.....
    if the turf is right up to the edge of the pool: :dizzy:
    IF ANYBODY TELLS YOU DIFFERENT THEY ARE LYING!!!!!

    i don't care how careful you are it will happen;;;
    i talk the homeowner to landscape around it///as a border

    I REMEMBER ONE GUY TALKED ABOUT THAT HE had to have the pool painted due to the iron stain.

    Wow. I've seen a pool that that the turf came right up to the pools edge. Now THAT would be a pain, not only for fert, but for mowing and such, too. Here in Michigan, all built-in pools have a sidewalk around them. I don't know if it's code, or what.
