Should I Add a Pool Deck?

Should I Add a Pool Deck?

A pool deck, or pool patio, is the area around your pool that provides a separate space between your pool and the rest of your yard. Read below to learn about the benefits of adding a pool deck. If you have been thinking about putting pool deck installation on your to-do list, contact Cruz Landscaping, in Lexington, SC, to explore your options.

Less Maintenance

Without a pool deck as a buffer, dirt can get easily tracked into your pool, from where the water meets the grass. Splashback from the pool will also create puddles of mud in the parts of your yard that are nearest to the pool. Chlorinated water is also unhealthy for grass. By adding a deck, cleaning in and around your pool becomes half as much work.

Space for Entertaining

A pool deck automatically creates an outdoor party space for entertaining guests. You can easily add patio furniture or a grill for cookouts. When it's time to clean up, furniture can be easily rolled away and the deck can be sprayed down with a powerwasher.

Pool Deck Options in Lexington

Pool decks come in a variety of styles and building materials. Think about your budget, aesthetic, and durability preferences. Concrete is the most popular option because there are numerous ways to personalize it. Concrete decks can be stamped, colored, stenciled, and more. As one of the longest-lasting choices, concrete pool decks don't require much maintenance other than resealing every two to three years. If that isn't your style, other common materials include wood, flagstone, and travertine. Talk with a pool specialist to decide which material is right for you.
