Why Pavers & Poolscapes

Pavers are an excellent choice for creating beautiful and functional outdoor spaces such as patios, walkways, driveways, and even outdoor kitchens. They come in various colors, shapes, and sizes, making it easy to create a customized look for your home.

Poolscapes, however, are all about creating a beautiful outdoor oasis centered around your swimming pool. A well-designed poolscape can transform your backyard into a luxurious retreat, from designing the perfect pool deck and surrounding landscaping to adding water features, lighting, and outdoor living spaces.

Recommended Paving Materials

Pavers are extremely versatile; they can be installed anywhere and everywhere. However, for maximum beauty and function, the correct paver must be used.

Here are the different pavers that we work with and where we suggest to use them:

  • Natural Stone. Natural stone is most often than not the most costly paving material, yet offers unparalleled durability and beauty. Bluestone, flagstone, granite and marble are ideal for decks, outdoor kitchens, patios, and pool surrounds; as these stones are not only resistant to weather and water, but slip-proof as well.
  • Brick. Brick’s long lasting durability has been tested and proven time and again. It can create a strong and slip-proof surface. Furthermore, it can even be installed according to the pattern of your choice: basket weave, circular, stack, and many more.
  • Concrete. Among all pavers, concrete is by far the most economical of all. It can endure very large loads even in the most trafficked areas. Another plus is that it can be colored, stained or shaped to imitate natural stones or bricks. It is optimal for driveways, pathways, walkways, and even outdoor kitchens.

How much does a pool decking cost?

The main difference in cost for pavers around a pool is the type of material used. For example, you may want to use a concrete paver or a natural stone product. Typically, a concrete paver is more cost effective. You will want to take into consideration that there are many manufacturers of paver stones and natural stone products and that all will have different price points. Due to the quantities we purchase, we are able to pass along our bulk savings directly to the customer.

Application has an effect on cost, as well as, accessibility to install the pool scape, environmental constraints or limitations, proper drainage etc. Cost for concrete pavers range from $10-$18 per square foot installed depending on the product and starting around $15 and up per square foot with natural stone.

We have an expert team to advise you on material. We take into consideration; budget, environmental factors, functionality, and aesthetics when making recommendations to clients to ensure they are making the right choice.

What is the process?

Installing pavers for pools, patios and walkways involve different techniques and processes. However, each paver installation we perform begins with the same steps. Our detailed, 3D Designs and Blueprints ensure that your space is exactly as you envisioned. Please see our Poolscapes page for a more detailed description of the installation process for pools, and our Patios and Walkways page for our patio and walkway installation process.

8 Steps to Install a Paver Pool Deck

Step 1) Plan & Design: Start with a detailed diagram, showing the pool and adjacent structures. Draw in your planter beds, grass areas and existing patios that will remain in place. It’s a good idea to set up a string line or use chalk, lime or paint to delineate the outer edge of your paver pool deck. Once you have the overall shape and design of the deck, record accurate measurements on your diagram. Your paver dealer can assist you with selecting your pattern and style and determining how much material you will need to buy.

Step 2) Excavate: To prevent an uneven pool deck, your pavers need to sit on a well-compacted bed of stone dust, also known as crush-n-run in some areas. The bed of stone dust needs to be 4-6 inches thick, and on top of that, we need 1-2″ of sand on which to place the pavers. Your excavation should be 5-8 inches below the top of the pool wall. do not forget to slope the deck away from the pool. Pitch the deck 1/4 inch for every foot, to allow water to run off the deck and not towards the pool. Excavate a few inches outside of the area that you plan to use pavers on.

Step 3) Apply 2″ of your stone dust at a time and then spray it down with a hose to help with cohesion. After wetting, use a power tamper, a “Jumping Jack”, to really tamp it down well – to the point that walking over it doesn’t leave footprints. Hose it down again, and then add another layer, wet the new layer, and then use the power tamper again. Use a level string across the deck, to help you maintain a consistent slope away from the pool. do not skimp on the sub-base, it keeps your pavers level by allowing for good drainage.

Step 4) Install your Edge Restraints: An outer edge barrier that will hold it all in place is important, since these pavers are not mortared in place. You can use 4×4 pressure treated wood, held in place by 24″ rebar pieces, or you can also find thin and strong steel borders, with stakes to hold them in place. A flexible edge restraint will be necessary if your paver pool deck has curved edges. There are many types of edge restraints, talk to your paver dealer about choosing the one best for your application. If your deck has 90 degree angles, be sure that your corner edges are square.

Step 5) Screed your Sand-Base: Over top of your compacted stone dust bed, you will place 1-2 inches of sharp angled sand. do not use play sand, or pool filter sand – use only “bedding sand” made specifically for this purpose. After laying down the sand evenly (remember your slope!), you can screed it level using a 2×4. To keep the screed level, some deck guys like to create rails, set at 6 or 8 ft. apart. You can use 3/4″ conduit or pipe, or use other 8 ft. long 2×4’s, as a guide to keep your screed board level on each end as you pull it across the sand.

Step 6) Install your Coping Pavers: As mentioned earlier, a specific stone is used for the edge of the pool, usually a bullnose (rounded) stone – sometimes in a contrasting color or texture. The pavers used as coping stones can also be the same as the ones used on the deck, but it’s safer to have a rounded edge, or a thinner paver that one can grab onto. These pavers are held in place with mortar or a heavy-duty adhesive. You may consider placing your coping pavers on the pool before installing the pool liner, to avoid any mess in the pool.

Step 7) Lay your Pavers: Spray a little water on the sand to firm up the surface slightly, and then lay down some boards to avoid disrupting the sand bed while you work. Take the time to re-screed any areas that do become disrupted. Then you can start to lay your pavers, one section at a time, working from the inside to the outside. That is, start with your first row directly behind the coping pavers. Push each stone laid up against the others tightly, using a rubber mallet to help them set in snugly. For those stones that need to be cut to fit up against the edge, mark them with a sharpie pen, and cut them with a wet saw.

Step 8) Finish Up: Spread masonry sand over the surface of your pavers and use a hand brush to work it into the spaces in between. Afterwards, use a garden hose to spray down the deck – the water will help the sand work it’s way into the spaces between the pavers. Repeat the process a few times over the next several days, and then every year or two, as needed, to replace any lost to wind or heavy rains. All of your pavers should be level and even. If not, you can fix it! If needed, tamp high pavers or add extra masonry sand to restore level or pitch.
