    Backyard Project in TX

    We have an existing pool that has an exposed aggregate (peagravel) pool deck, next to that pool deck is a wooden deck and that deck butts up to an existing concrete patio. As shown below:

    Our plan is to rip out the wood deck and replace it with concrete. The existing pool deck, the new concrete and the existing concrete will all get a stamped overlay, so that it is all consistent. We will also be adding a pergola.

    I wanted to ask for those that have red brick houses similar to mine what color stamped concrete did you go with and what color stain on your cedar did you go with. I also have what I think is Arizona or Oklahoma flagstone as my pool coping.

    Not real keen on the stamped, but it was cost-effective at the time.

    @pragmatic, I've admired your project from afar. Plan to do an ODK eventually as well.

    @SDV, nice work! Is that stamped concrete or are those pavers? That color might be perfect for us if it's stamped concrete

    How do you guys upload and post pics as pics and not links?

    @SDV do you know what stain color that is on your cedar?

    We have pavers, but you should be able to get similar color from a stamped concrete.

    Stain is Ready Seal medium brown
