    Looks very good DVS,
    I will be honest though, I hate that style of retaining wall block (not your work) the work quality looks top notch.

    Looks great DVS,
    Did you vaneer the pavers to the concrete or did you use bedding sand? in which case was the concrete okay to lay without fabric under the bed?

    Thanks guys!

    The retaining wall faces a wooded area and is not visible from the view of the owners.

    The coping around the pool is mortared to the concrete pool deck.

    And the pavers are set in bedding sand with geo-textile fabric placed over the existing concrete pool deck.

    The pavers are manufactered by a company called 'Bradstone', in Harpers Ferry, WV. Which is owned by Aggregate Industries. The pavers used are called 'Old Town'.

    It's quite a job. In a few weeks a pergola with retractable awnings is going in, along with ornamental iron fencing. A small water feature, planting, and outdoor lighting will be done in early spring.

    Nice work. Glad the wall doesnt face the house. Is there any better looking cap or spout for that drain?

    Dont you guys clean your pools in the winter? [​IMG]

    We're not a pool company! Typically when folks invest in a nice pool patio, if the pool is NOT new.....they replace the liner when the patio construction work is finished. So cleaning the pool isn't necessary as the liner is about to be replaced :)

    Not sure which drain(s) you're referencing. We have drains in place which will have grates installed after the poly sand is brushed in. And the other drains are buried.

    why the geo tex on concrete. The only reason I could see would be to keep sand from migrating into future cracks...is there any other reason?
