It looks like a red brick that's been treated with something. I really like the way that the pool looks like it could be from centuries ago with the palm trees in the backdrop. I would love to have a brick pathway like this in my backyard.

Though we did not install the pool pictured above, I see you have questions regarding colors of aggregate pool finishes. Most of our clients prefer Pebble Tec which has a unique feature on their website where you can see the water color change per depth for each line and color made. You can research more at:

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Exterior ApplicationsMasonry materials are great for using in the garden, on patios and on porches, because they won't deteriorate like wood or plastic. If you use brick as a paving material, make sure the bricks are paver bricks. Many reclaimed bricks will crack if exposed to freeze-and-thaw cycles in direct contact with the dirt. Though most buildings have mortar holding the bricks, blocks and stones together, mortar is not necessary for many outdoor applications. The garden is a great place for dry-stacked stone walls and paver patios where the gaps are filled with sand.
