We have an above ground pool, put inground. Sounds strange but that is the way they do tons of them here in the southwest. Nice thing is if you no longer want it, you really can remove it and fill it in. We have cobblestone rocks around ours to prevent diving, etc, but I am thinking of letting the grass grow a little closer. I love the look below. I do bet the grass clippings fall in the pool. I am ready for summer. You?
