    We have laid much longer than 500mm around fiberglass many times before. Generally speaking a fiberglass company will only allow the the cost to lay 500x500mm as standard and then charge you a variation if you were to exceed that length. Im assuming this is what they would be referring too.

    Just be sure the the depth of the stone (waters edge to back of concrete beam) does overhang the concrete beam as this will be used as an expansion line) for example if you water line to back edge is 570mm wide you could use a 600x600mm coper or a 1200x600mm coper (both allow for 30mm over hang in pool) but not a 700x700mm coper

    As a concrete pool builder and landscaper we prefer longer pavers as in most cases they look better, cost less, and get laid quicker. Only negative is the extra weight of the stone.

    The best advice to give is if you are paving after the coping and using your own trades person to lay these I would suggest getting one company to lay all the paving and coping to ensure consistency to the workmanship and stone (1 batch).

    I would always suggest using a accredited landscaper to do such works. Depending on where you are located you could contact you local landscape industry association to get contacts. In Victoria, Australia it is 'Landscape Victoria'
