Treated Lumber

I will be building a deck in April to partially surround a 28' pool. Of course I would love to use redwood but because of the cost and limited availability in KY, I will use treated lumber. I think treated lumber is great, best thing since sliced bread, but I hate that ugly green color. Are there other types of treated lumber out there(cost effective and available)that have more of a wood tone color? Or is there a particilar stain or process that works well to conceal the green tint?
Also any help in locating a multi-level deck plan with multi-angle platform steps leading to a pool would be appreciated. I'm surprised at the limited plans available for anything but the simplest of pool decks. If not the plans just the basic underlying framing for multi-angled platform steps would be very helpful. I'm not sure whether multiple stringers are usually used or a complex post and joist pattern.

Can't help on the plans, but as to the green color, it will be gone before the end of the summer. So, if you can be patient for a few months, it will be gray/tan in pretty short order.

You can also buy kiln dried pressure treated, that is already gray, but of course is more expensive.
