Multiple Options for Your Pool Deck

Once your pool has been installed, it’s time to start bringing your yard back to normal. The first thing to do is to choose a pool deck. You want to choose a deck material that offers a non-slip surface that’s comfortable for bare feet and looks great with your pool and home.

Northern Colorado Pools can help. We can install a wide range of pool decking materials, which you can learn more about below. As we design your pool, we’ll work closely with you to determine which pool deck will work well with the style of your home, pool, and existing hardscaping or landscaping. We can either extend this pool deck into the patio or make it a stand-alone feature.

Durable, classic, and timeless, a brick pool surround can give your pool a natural look that blends well with its surroundings. We can help you select the right color and texture of bricks that will complement your pool and existing landscaping and hardscaping.


Interlocking pavers are durable and attractive, and stand up well to frost and cold. The material can resemble anything from concrete to tile and cobblestones. Plus, the color and texture options are nearly endless. It’s easy to customize the look of your pool deck for a surprisingly affordable price.


A wooden deck will give your pool a natural, even rustic look, and with so many patterns, species, and varieties available, it’s easy to create a one-of-a-kind deck. However, do keep in mind that a wood deck will require seasonal maintenance, especially since it’s so close to the water.


Natural stone can be a great way to create a slip-resistant pool deck. There are many different types available, ranging from granite and limestone to sandstone, quartzite, and more. Because it’s a natural material, what you see is what you get – so while the design options are limitless, it helps to have someone with a good eye for design help you make any decisions.


Tile pool decks can be eye-catching and bold, and it can help you transition from the indoors to the outdoors. However, it’s important to pick a tile that is specially rated for slip resistance. The surface will often be wet, so we can help you pick an unglazed terracotta or water-impervious porcelain.

Mixed Materials

If you can’t make up your mind, mix it up! A wooden deck leading to a concrete pool surround can be a striking combination. Try adding mosaic inlays to the concrete for additional eye-catching décor. The sky is the limit here, so we can help you bring your dreams to life.

Artificial Turf

We’d recommend keeping actual grass a certain distance away from the pool, to reduce the odds of grass clippings or mud ending up in the pool. Artificial turf gives the same look without the mowing, watering, fertilizing, etc. This means you have more time to splash around in the pool!

Synthetic Decking

If you love the look of a wood deck but could do without the maintenance, a synthetic or composite material could be right for you. We can help you find a brand that gives you the look you want while being durable, slip-resistant, and resistant to mold and mildew as well.
