We've had our 27 foot diameter above ground pool for years now without a deck. There has always been something "more important" to spend money on. Now hubby is thinking something on the ground instead of up around the pool would be better and I'm trying to cheerfully go along hoping there is something affordable that will look nice and can be enjoyed by both the adults and the grand children. Any suggestions?!
A paver patio can be DIY friendly, though I guess the question would be since there are grandchildren how old and fit are you and your husband. It is hard work.
If I were to hire it out, I'd look at stamped concrete. I like patios over decks if you're close to the ground. Clearly if you wanted it to allow jumping into the above ground pool at various locations a deck would be preferred. How long do you intend to keep the above ground pool?
Any advice given here is general in nature and is not necessarily valid for your given area. If in doubt check with your local codes enforcement department for what is required when doing electrical, plumbing or structural work on your house. Permits may or may not be required in your area and home owners may not be able to DIY some tasks. I have no way of knowing if you have the skills needed to complete the tasks you are asking about, when in doubt seek professional assistance.
My advice may be worth exactly what you pay me for it. :-) For the record I did not stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night.
We started our family young, so still willing and able! This is a patio that will be on the ground next to the pool so the kids can play without the fear of them falling in. Thank you for your response!
I would just use the block pavers that make a patio on the ground. We have on on our side yard but you must use a strong weed killer to stop the weeds in the cracks.
Thank you for your help! bgbabe
