If you have been wanting a pool but don't have the budget for an in-ground pool, you can still make an above ground pool look classy...
Let me show you I made this above ground pool look in-ground in my backyard...
Exposed plastic pool coping screams "above ground pool". Using clever deck design, we utilized wood boards to cover the top of the coping.
To conceal the tacky coping from inside the pool, we attached 2x6 boards to the top deck boarder. You can see what a difference this makes below in the progress photo.
So that we didn't have to build stairs leading up to our above ground pool, we installed it where the grade of our yard naturally sloped. Keep the natural grade of your yard in mind!
