The decking material is Ipe. It hasn't been altered or stained. It's just a bit weathered from the sun. Jason Urrutia/Urrutia Design

Do you know what type of trees you have?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The pool is separated from the fire pit and outdoor kitchen by a tree-shaded section of open deck. All the outdoor furniture is teak, from Terra Teak in Mill Valley, with ample custom pillows.
