Steve Koepke
Thanks for your response. That's exactly the same width space I have for my new build (start construction in Dec). How much space do you recommend for greenery on the side? About 3ft deep beds?

That sounds about right Steve. It really depends on what you're planning to plant. Remember to also have your sprinklers address the the plantings correctly and it's a great opportunity to install the outdoor lighting while everything is dug out. Love to see the finished resulys!

You will need to contact Western Pavers for a quote. Pricing will vary depending on the design and selected pavers and pieces. I found Western Pavers priced appropiately for the scope of work needed. good luck on your project!

The color of the Belgard Dublin 3 piece pavers is "Toscana" for the band area. For the Belgard Dublin 4 piece it's also "Toscana" for the field area.The pool coping and seat wall is Mega Bergerac "Montecito" & a Bergerac circle kit: "Toscana". I hope this helps. Good luck with your project!

Have fun with the planning. See what you and you family want to do in your backyard space and give your contractor a budget. They're good at getting in as much off your wants as possible. Splurge on important things so they last a long time. As long as you have a long term plan you can also do your project at different times to help spread out your budget to get more. Good luck!

Just got a very helpful answer from a representative of the manufacturer actually. The pool surround is Belgard Mega Bergerac Squares and the rest is the Belgard Dublin Cobble 3 piece.

We used Western Pavers in the San Diego area. They were great throughout the entire process. And yes as charottend commented, the pavers are Belgard Dublin in 3 & 4 piece in Toscana and the Mega Bergerac are in Montecito and Toscana. Good luck with your project!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Katherine Caviness added this to Pool-Friendly Patio Materials
Pavers Pavers are still a popular choice for homeowners. This pool patio is made with Belgard Mega Bergerac Squares and the Belgard Dublin Cobble. Cost: $3.50 to $5.50 per square foot (materials only)Pros:Durable and affordableEasy to repair — if a paver is damaged, you can pull it out and replace itCon: Feels rougher on feet and hands

The pool is 35' long and 11' wide. The depths are 4" on each end with the middle being 5'. The spa is 6' in diameter and 3.5' deep with benches on oppisite sides at different heights. Some of the pavers surrounding the pool were cut to different widths, otherwise they would not fit at the full size of 14"sq. At front end of the pool the stones were cut down from 8"-13" so they would look more uniform.
