So Ipe only comes in one colour when you buy it, is that right? I understand it weathers naturally to that beautiful grey colour but when you purchase it, is there only one colour you purchase it in?

I love the light-colored wood planks used on this pool deck. My husband and I are installing a pool soon, and we are wondering what we should use for the deck of it. We will definitely have to find some wood planks like these since they offset the water perfectly.

Is there deck joist on the underside of the decking, which leaves me to believe open air space, my question is more about drainage under the deck. Is there a French drain or catch basins to divert the water from collecting and causing algae growth or mosquito haven areas... Or even an increase of wood rot.

There is framing over concrete slab. The slab is perforated with holes with PVC piping leading to a drywell.

The material is called Pebble Tech. It is common and comes in many colors.

yes it is a gunite pool. That is blue stone coping where it meets the wood deck.

We love the pool deck but are worrying about slippage with small children?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

KitchenLab | Rebekah Zaveloff Interiors added this to The Perfect Poolside Landscape
Here, a more formal repetition with shrubs echoes the lines of decking. Spaces like this make me think of the same elements I learned while studying painting: line, proportion, perspective, repetition, scale, visual and tactile texture and pattern. All of these elements are important whether we're talking art, interior design or landscaping.
