Two summers ago I wrote a piece on beautiful aboveground pools - with decking. Pool decks designs for aboveground pools has expanded even further since, so this topic is ripe for an update.
In Part 1 of Aboveground pool deck designs, we showcased what handy homeowners and happy helpers can create with their own hands. Many were indeed built by professional deck installers, but all could be feasible for someone with carpentry experience.
Whether you design and build your own aboveground pool deck, or you hire professionals to bring your vision to life, here's some new ideas on how to deck out an aboveground pool!
1. Here we have the traditional 2/3 wood deck wrapping a round above ground pool. Laminar deck jets create a little splash and whimsy. A self closing and self latching gate would add some safety.
2. A Trex deck of composite materials blends nicely with the upper deck, and ensures years of maintenance free durability.
3. This deck appears to float over the yard. Backfill was used on the near side, to allow the wood deck to be flush with the edge of the pool. A small above ground pool really doesn't need a complete surround pool deck.
4. This raised deck design hides a partially submerged pool wall, and the long lines make the pool look expansive and elegant.
5. Cute micro-deck keeps the budget low, while the design ensures a good level of safety, keeping out curious children and hot dogs! Angled planks add visual interest.
6. In the shadow of a large Oak tree, a 24' aboveground pool is wrapped in the warm hues and textures of wood, soaking up the late afternoon sunshine. Note the wrap around tree benches.
7. Functional and sturdy, this aboveground pool deck design extends to the pool walls, wrapped in wood to match the deck, but also to protect the pool wall from backyard rough housing.
8. Another 24' Round aboveground pool with deck, this time a traditional complete wrap around deck and railing, sitting on concrete piers. This Keyhole pool deck design connects to the screened in porch and patio off the back of the house.
9. For such a beautiful view, this pool was wrapped in warm tropical woods, perhaps Ipe or Teak. These woods require staining and sealing to bring out their full beauty, but are resistant to most insects and moisture problems.
10. Yellow Pine, pressure treated and sealed repels moisture. Lattice works hides the underpinnings and gives this aboveground pool a real inground pool look and feel.
