    Not sure what forum I should place this in, and if it is applicable here, but here goes....

    For concrete work.
    What would give a cleaner finished appearance?

    White arrowhead expansion joints, saw cuts, or notched in by trowel?
    This will be for a sidewalk surrounding an inground pool.
    Sidewalk will be 36 inches wide.

    Thoughts from those that have used either methods are appreciated.

    I would either cut and seal them or use a joiner. Joiner is the quicker route. I don't like the plastic joints for around the pool just in case they raise up a little, you'll start stubbing toes.
