Building a Deck

The pool is the heart of any backyard, and the deck is an extension of the pool. Depending on your lifestyle, you might decide to build a large lounging area next to the pool where you can plant some chairs and chill in the sun. Or you might decide to build a water feature with multiple levels.

The style of your pool deck should complement the finishes of your pool. That’s why it’s so important to think about the pool and deck as a whole when you’re in the design phase. Some of the top decking options for Arizona pools include:

  • Concrete
  • Stone
  • Brick/Pavers       

Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of these decking materials.


Concrete is an affordable and stylish option. The poured concrete can even be stamped to create a subtle design within the material. A stamped finish can be designed to mimic other more expensive materials, like stone or travertine. Concrete also comes in many different colors so you can customize the look.



For a durable and stylish look, stone is a great option. It’s one of the most popular decking material choices for Arizona pools. Stone is great if you want to extend the pool deck and incorporate a built-in fire pit or unique water feature. Some stone options, like travertine, are great for a decking that is safer and not as slippery when wet.



Pavers are an excellent choice for easy maintenance and a beautiful design. Plus, they’re easy to replace if one happens to crack. The best part is that they come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and you can have a hand in the pattern and design layout.
