BrickThe bricks pictured here are full-dimensioned bricks set on a concrete base for permanent stability.Cost: $7 to $9 per square foot installedPros: Individual bricks can be replaced if they become cracked or damagedLong lasting and durableCons:Needs to be resealed after power washing and other maintenanceCan feel hot on feet
A Jack-on-Jack pattern is carried throughout this entire pool and seating area. Setting bricks in such a fashion can help create an illusion or feeling of a larger space then what actually exists. It is interesting how this stacked bond pattern is installed directly to the pool edge with no border.
