Another advantage of an above ground pool with a surround deck is that you can make use of a safety and security pool cover during winter months, vacations, or anytime that you wish to safeguard the pool.
This sort of timber pool deck has safety and security built-in all year around, with a self-latching gateway on the top deck, attached to the house.
The latticework on the underside is a cost-effective way to conceal the pool structure, as well as a tiny door allows accessibility to the pump as well as filter devices.
All this pool requires currently is some landscape design around the edge.
I would certainly do evergreen shrubs such as azaleas or forsythia, as well as seasonal hostas would certainly look good planted between.
