With nearly unlimited choices to select from, your pool deck never has to look the same as anyone else’s, unless you want it to! Installing pavers on your pool deck and pool coping are an appealing and classic look for your outside living space and offer slip resistance and style.
There’s more to designing a paver pool deck than meets the eye. If you have the opportunity to plan your design before the pool is installed, there are certain things worth considering:
- Size: If you intend to use the pool deck as a patio for entertaining and lounging, consider the size and amount of furniture and features you wish to incorporate and where they will go. For example, your barbecue or outdoor kitchen is best placed a minimum of 10 feet from the home. Consider a designated barbecuing or cooking area of your patio!
- Elevation: Properly plan steps, multilevel areas, and retaining walls to support your pool surround and property.
- Drainage: You always want your rainwater and any pool water to drain away from your home. In areas where it is difficult to grade the pool decking, we recommend that you install drains that will transport excess water to an appropriate location.
Lighting is a great way to accent the pool deck area and provide better safety around the pool when using it after sundown. In addition, you may want to consider adding a water feature to your pool area for visual and auditory appeal. After all, there is nothing more relaxing than the sound of a gentle waterfall!
