I just finished building my own above ground pool with a surrounding deck, the entire thing made out of wood. I wish I could figure out how to post a picture here, but it never works for me.

Anyway, if you want to email me at, I'll reply with a couple of pictures.

I used Trex decking because I didn't want to deal with any maintenance around the pool. The railings are pressure treated though, but they don't take the wear and tear that the decking does. I was especially concerned with wood preservatives and stains making their way into the pool water. So far so good, with nothing but smiles all around!

Thanks Doug and MeffaDawg! I'll check out Trex decking. And i've bookmarked those sights. We'll see if i can do this on a limited budget....LOL
