Backyard Landscaping Ideas with Interlocking Pool Deck

A behind-the-scenes look at a backyard landscaping project in Mississauga

Recently we had the opportunity to work on overhauling a backyard in Mississauga which included an existing in ground pool. This undertaking, from start to finish, took 3 weeks to complete. The goal is to transform the original backyard and pool deck into a relaxing oasis where friends and family can gather during the beautiful summer months in Ontario. For more details on what swimming pool contractors need to consider when installing pavers around a pool deck, click here.

Preparing for the Backyard Transformation

To ensure the project site is levelled, a regrading of the entire backyard (including pool deck area) was performed.

Interlocking Stones for Pool Deck

As with any landscaping project, there are many material types to choose from.  Based on the budget, maintenance level, durability and aesthetics, the pool deck utilized Trevista 80 – Grey Mix interlocking stone, creating a contemporary and inviting look.

By using interlocking stones, its surface reflects the heat from the scorching sun during the summer months, making it barefoot friendly.  In addition, since it is slip resistant, it prevents falls with kids and adults alike.

Smooth bullnose copings surround the pool’s profile enhancing the clean, simple and classic style.

To complete the pool deck space, interlock retaining walls were erected which runs along the back and side fences.

Concrete was used for the cabana padding along with the skirt around the pool.  Lastly, new sod, leading from the house to the pool deck, was installed.

Completed Backyard Oasis

By undertaking a complete backyard and pool deck makeover, family and friends can enjoy the summer months for years to come.  A well leveled yard and professionally installed interlock stone pool deck requires little maintenance to keep it looking like a summer retreat.
