With a host of choices to select from, you will not ever be required to take a swimming pool deck that is identical to what other people could have within their backyards. For many homeowners, it would be sufficient that our paving rock pool decks are still an appealing and classy addition to his or her outside living spaces.
It’s the best part of your summer lifestyle; where sun-soaked days end with relaxed evenings. Your pool deck will make a splash even before you enter the pool.
There’s more to designing a pool deck than meets the eye. If you have the opportunity to plan your design before the pool is installed, you will want to make sure you address certain things:
- Size: If you intend to use the pool deck as a patio for entertaining or lounging, consider the size and amount of furniture you wish to incorporate.
- Elevation: properly plan steps, multilevel areas and retaining walls.
- Drainage: Drainage should always be away from the pool and your home. In areas where it is difficult to grade the pool decking, we recommend that you install drains that will transport excess rainwater to an appropriate location.
Lighting and additional features
Lighting is a great way to accent the pool deck surface texture and to provide additional safety around the pool when using it after sunset. In addition, you may consider adding a water feature to the pool area for visual and auditory appeal; after all, there is nothing more relaxing than the sound of a gentle waterfall!
