    Default Remove Above Ground Pool & turn into a Patio?

    I'm tearing down an above ground pool and was wondering, after some leveling, if the sand base under the pool would be sufficient for a patio base. (Pavers or flagstone type?)
    Has anyone done this? good or bad idea?
    Have any landscape suggestions or pics?

    better off going with a 4" base of 3/4" stone for drainage and to level off the ground,then use some sand between the pavers and for fine tuning under them
    fire up the saw and make some dust

    It is unlikely that the loam was dug out and a proper base preparation was done for the installation of the pool. For a patio the loam should be dug out and proper base of stone, pea gravel, and sand installed.
