above ground pool

Depends on what the pool is made of, concrete is highly alkaline and is hard on aluminum and steel.

above ground pool

I would not advise it. I have had 3 above ground pools and stone was used around the edges for preventing grass and weeds, and drainage for splashed water. I also used roofing material under the sand base and extended it out at least one foot past the pool edge. This was after the first pool had a large hard weed grow from outside the edge and into the liner.
If you have never made a mistake, you haven't done much.
