stone and wood decking

“Because swimming pool owners will spend as much time on their pool deck as inside their swimming pool, the right decking is a very important design choice.”

You will probably spend more time on your swimming pool deck then inside your inground swimming pool. You need a decorative concrete, stone, or wood pool deck that is inviting, beautiful, and provides a safe non-slip surface for sunbathing, entertaining, playing, or just hanging out. Choosing the right swimming pool desk is just as important as choosing the right size and shape of your swimming pool. As a result, we give just as much attention to choosing the right swimming pool deck as custom designing the right swimming pool for your backyard. Most of Poseidon Swimming Pools customers want a swimming pool deck that wraps around their pool and is large enough to accommodate their patio furniture, their family, and their guests.


A poured concrete deck is the most popular and affordable choice. The colors can be infinite and we are able to stamp the concrete in any design or pattern you choose to replicate the look and feel of a natural stone finish. However, when choosing the right deck material for your pool, understand that the choices are almost limitless and are only held back by your budget. Here are some of the materials we have available to us.


As mentioned before, poured concrete is the most affordable choice. The look can be changed by a technique called stamping to get a desirable texture and style.


A new material is composite wood. These materials are built to look like wood but are made from a plastic like material. They will never wear, never fade, and never rot. This is a very permanent wood style deck but is much more expensive that building a wood deck because of the price of these polymer materials.


Wood decks, like poured and stamped concrete decks, are another affordable choice for swimming pool decks. They are affordable and beautiful. The downside of a wooden deck is the yearly maintenance that they entail. If you love the look of natural wood and don’t mind the maintenance costs, then this is the best choice. Poseidon Swimming Pools can wrap your inground swimming pool in wooden decking to make it look like a true island cabana style oasis.


A more expensive tier of decking is stone decking and paver decking. Stone decking is great for natural pools as it adds a remarkable natural grotto feel to any inground swimming pool. The most popular of the stone materials include slate decking and limestone decking. Another popular style of stone is a paver. Paver swimming pool decks can be installed to create any style from country to a modern feel depending on the chosen stone, color, and layout style.


Swimming pool decks are an integral part of inground swimming pool custom decision and construction. We take great pride in our pool installations and want you to be just as happy with your swimming pool as your swimming pool deck. This is why we provide pictures and samples from many different high quality deck material providers so you can make an informed choice. Once we understand you and the type of pool you are looking for, we can give you options and style samples.
