The area surrounding the swimming pool, also known as pool deck or pool patio, completes the whole style of the entire space. It should have enough space for lounge chairs and tables and also have a welcoming feel for family and guests. When deciding on the material to use for landscaping this area, many home owners choose between a concrete or interlocking pool deck.
It’s About Style, Durability and Safety
Different materials yields different styles. Concrete decks are less inviting but more sleek whereas interlock pavers are versatile and can accommodate any design your heart desires. Concrete has a limited number of colour options compared to the endless selection of hues that pavers have to offer.
Interlock pavers are non-skid, non-slip which helps increase the poolside safety. After prolonged exposure under the scorching sun, it does not overheat, making it comfortable to walk barefoot around the pool deck.
