    Wood deck or back-fill and patio

    Hi, I'm new to the forum and am looking for some advice on the installation of our 27' Saltwater 8000 above ground pool. As you can see we are a bit of a slope and I would like for our new patio to be at the same level as the top of the pool when it's all done. The pool is rated to be back-filled, but I was curious what the best way to go about this would be. Would I do it like a footing for a house with drain tile and clean gravel up to where I would start patio/paver base? We only want to have a patio or deck about half way around and the pool side away from the house will be at the original grade.
