What would a pool be without hardscapes? This state-of-the-art Optimum pool turned out great, but it was in desperate need of decking! Check out this segment of Lifetime® Network’s Designing Spaces™ to see how these Texas homeowners PAVE their way to Paradise!

They selected 2” thick, large format concrete pavers to add a natural, “old world” look. This type of “segmental decking” is perfect for yards with multiple levels and uneven terrain and can easily be set to create any deck design.

Once the ground was prepped, the deck was installed quickly. The pavers were finished off with special polymeric sand to hold the pavers in place and keep weeds from growing in between.
