What Is a Pool Deck?

A pool deck is an immediate area that surrounds the pool. Virtually all in-ground pools feature a pool deck, and many above-ground pools add one as a design feature.

Pool decks can be made from concrete, stone, wood, brick, or tile. A pool deck can be large and elaborate, or it can be as small as a pathway surrounding the pool and dividing it from the rest of the yard.

With above-ground pools, raised wooden decks are a popular entry alternative to a pool ladder.

Pool ladders aren’t the most attractive additions to a yard, and a pool deck helps above-ground pool owners to make the most of their enjoyment of the pool.
