Building a Swimming Pool - Consider a New Deck As Part Of the Landscaping

Building a Swimming Pool – Consider a New Deck As Part Of the Landscaping

August 5, 2017

Not many things go hand in hand and compliment each other quite as majestically as a sparkling swimming pool and stunning timber deck.

The beauty of a swimming pool is the natural look of the water. Add in some stunning landscaping with a choice selection of flora, and you really have created a relaxing and calming oasis. While surrounding your pool area with concrete, tiles or pavers is fine, it really doesn’t add to that overall natural appeal.

But a timber deck does.

If you are in the planning stages of building your pool, or construction is already underway, browse some websites or peruse some magazines and look for landscaping and deck ideas. Particularly seek out images of wooden decking and you will soon see just how stunning the final results can be, and just how at one with nature the overall swimming pool area appears.

The other great thing about timber is it’s good for the environment. Timber absorbs harmful carbon dioxide, helping to establish more fresh air in your yard.

Another great feature of timber decks is they don’t tend to get as slippery when wet as pavers and tiles do. Children running around with wet feet after getting out of the pool are far less likely to slip over on a timber deck construction.

If you build a beautiful in ground swimming pool and then have deck builders construct a timber deck around it or nearby, you will truly be amazed by how it turns out. It really is the ultimate finishing touch if you want to go for a more overall, natural look.

Decks also offer a fantastic place to lay out the deck chairs and soak up the sun’s rays after a refreshing dip. Add in outdoor entertaining, a place to have some nibblies and drinks while watching the sunset, or just simply a place to relax and unwind after work, drink in hand, while gazing into the calming waters of the pool. Decks really make the ultimate outdoor space that much better.
