I had a stoned pavement in my pool area before but my grandkids sometimes slip on it when they are swimming, so my wife decided to replace it with artificial grass. At first, I thought it would not be a great idea because I'm afraid that the water will be stuck under it. The installers explained to us that there is a drainage system so I gave it a try. The installation took 2 days and when I saw it, I was very happy because it looks perfect with the pool! It also looks so natural. I am now planning to install some of it in our backyard too.
