Thought I'd share a few pics of our little pool & the deck (mini-deck? landing?) Next year we plan to deck over the existing patio and have a much bigger area around the pool. My husband insisted the entire landing could not be level with the top frame of the pool b/c the deck blocks he used specified only to hold up to 30". That's really the one thing that bugs me!
I still can't figure out how to landscape around the pool though because the braces stick out a couple of feet. There aren't many pictures online of the rectangular Intex pool, other than stock photos!
