    Great looking pool and deck project. But do you know what I really admired the most in the pictures? The lawn! You guys have really nice, soft looking, pretty green grass. It looks wonderful!

    Re: Our project..

    Thanks for all the great comments!!! The grass is actually native bermuda. Grows great in dry conditions, kept it short and it stays nice and soft. Only thing I had to do was kill most of it growing around the pool. The stuff has a tendancy to crawl and has been know to crawl under and through pool liners.

    Re: Our project..----Update Pics

    Couple of updated pics as this thing is taking on a life of its own now. Decided to add trim pieces around the edges to see how it would look. Working on the stairs now, which should be interesting.

    Very nice! I think the trim pieces give it a nice finished look.

    Re: Our project..UPDATED with completed pics

    Below is the completed project. At some point we'll extend the splash deck all around the pool, but for now it's perfect for us!!!

    WOW! Beautiful project. Love the colors. We are hoping to add a splash deck this year. where did you get the plans, or did you design it yourself? I've been to decks.com for plans but pier blocks are not permitted in NJ. Darn!

    Deck, heck I thought I was getting a pool in this year, but I won't be able to even get to that.

    The new deck looks awesome, gotta love the Trex. I have it around the house deck and it is great. Just don't allow anything to stain it. Clean it up right away.

    I completely winged it on this one. I've built a few decks before and modified this one more than once. Really all I did was build out the framing 1st to lay out my plan, then lay down the Trex (which is amazing!!).
    Thanks for all the nice comments.

    A beautiful work and how fun it must be to enjoy! I am a newbie. We hope to have an AG pool in a few weeks. This is inspiring!

    OH--may I ask what brand pool you have? It is beautiful. Is it partially buried? Thanks.

    Re: Our project..

    Just curious...how does your deck look now? Was that some sort of composite decking? We are trying to decide what to use and I have heard horror stories about TREX and others.

    Re: Our project..

    Beautiful.

    Every year you have your Trex deck you will love it more. I've had a big Trex deck since 02 but purchased it a couple of years prior; one of the first production runs. Whenever someone I know has to shell out money and put labor into repairing, staining, cleaning I give myself a big pat on the back for choosing it. BTW... I haven't had much problem with stains. Every 2-3 years I scrub it down with OxyClean. I guess I should do it more often but the dogs drag so much dirt and mud up on it, it looks the same in a few weeks. And then there's the birds.............

    I even use it straight on the ground. I'm getting ready to do fill in some cutouts in our pool decking (orginally had big native trees) and will use recycled rubber underneath. The recycled rubber is great but the dogs scatter it all over the place. At least it floats in the pool so the Pool Skim catches it.

    I love working with Trex. The only hard part is carrying really long boards by myself. I usually just drag them. Our Trex goes beyond the steel beam on two sides of deck. We had to reinforce it, underneath, with aluminum L's the whole length. Found out it breaks if you step on an unsupported overlap.

    Enjoy your beautiful place and give yourself praise for such a great job.
