The pool coping is bullnosed travertine in Noce. It came from KRC Rock in San Marcos.

Is that real or faux grass around the pool?

It is real grass. There are three keys to making real grass work around a pool. The first is an underground irrigation system-- I like Netafim. The next is a wide coping to keep grass cuttings out of the pool as much as possible. The last is that it works best with an adult's pool- kids jumping in and out get a lot of chlorinated (or salty) water on the grass and will kill it.
