South Florida Pool Deck Remodeling
Other than being a source of relaxation exercises after a long day of hard work, pools can also add to the general beauty of a home. There are a variety of design ideas you can incorporate in the landscape of the area around the pool to make it look great. Installation of poolside decks can be one of such great ideas. New construction ideas have come up to enable easier building of these decks making them easily accessible to people from all lifestyles. The decks come in different types such as wood and concrete providing a variety of options to those who are interested, whether they have above ground pools or underground ones.
Like every other construction project, the first step in installing a pool deck is taking measurement of the area you intend to use. This will help you get the right amount material to use regardless of whether it’s concrete or wood. Record every measurement and don’t restrict yourself to the pool area only. Although you can do it by yourself, it’s best to consult the services of a professional in order to know exactly how to handle everything.
Setting up the material
Once you figure out the amount of material you’ll need, you can start setting up the construction area beginning with excavating the area if it’s necessary. You can go on to putting up the piers and posts if you want a wooden deck and stones concrete for the other type. Make sure the area you’re building on is flat enough to avoid any crookedness.
Lay the base foundation
Pool decks usually differ according to the type of pool but they should be built in a way that allows water to run off away from the pool rather than inside it. As you set the first base of concrete on the ground, it’s important to keep this in mind while ensuring your base has several layers for maximum strength.
Set up side bar rails
Apart from acting as safety barriers, these rails also help hold everything in place by providing side support. As the final step in building your deck, you should ensure that the sidebars are strong and durable. Seek advice from your constructor about the best rails for your type of pool deck, whether it’s vinyl, composite or wooden. They should cover the sun deck and the staircase or the steps leading to and from the deck.
ConclusionAfter successful pool deck installation, it’s important to take good care of your deck so that it stays in good shape for longer. When clean ensure you use a putty knife to remove all the dirt stuck between the boards. You should also make sure that no shrubs grow on the deck at any point, while protecting the plants around the deck by covering them with a plastic cover. When not sweeping, use gentle cleaners that won’t damage your deck, choosing the appropriate type for your deck and ensuring that you follow the instructions that come with each one. It’s better to clean on cloudy days to get the best results. Take care of the joints, cleaning them regularly and oiling whenever it’s necessary.
From planning the layout of your garden to selecting the perfect plants, shrubs and flowers and making sure they are placed expertly, landscape design involves a huge range of tasks and skills. Choosing the right landscape design company to work with is the first step in creating an outside environment that blends seamlessly with your home and boosts its value.
At Botanical Visions, we specialize in producing custom-designed landscape solutions that speak directly to our clients’ different tastes and home styles. Our team of landscape architects, designers, and professional landscapers work together and consult clients throughout the design process to produce beautiful outside areas that are like extensions of the homes or commercial buildings that they surround.
Landscape architecture - blending the built and natural environments
A successful landscape design begins with the meeting of two visions. Our landscape architects schedule an initial meeting with every new client, find out what type of landscaping style appeals to them, and take the design aesthetics of the building into consideration. After this, our team gets to work creating a unique landscape design that combines elements of the building design with the client’s taste and the skill and creativity of our designers. The result is a unique, cutting-edge landscape that blends seamlessly with the built structures on the property.
Precision planning for superior results
Once the landscape design is finalized, the Botanic Visions team sets to work planning each phase of the project, from preparing the site for landscaping to installing hardscaped features like bridges, fountains, and ponds. Finally, the landscaping itself is planned in fine detail, ensuring fast completion with minimum wastage.
A full range of landscape, hardscape and lifestyle installations

Water features are another excellent addition to any landscape garden, providing natural irrigation and a visual focal point for the outside area.

Outdoor kitchens for unique dining
There’s no better way to enjoy the Florida climate that an outdoor gathering by the pool - and outdoor kitchens are the ideal feature to bring friends and family together. As culinary tastes have evolved beyond the traditional poolside barbeque, outdoor cooking facilities have transformed the grill area of yesteryear into a fully-fledged kitchen where al fresco cooking and dining come naturally.
Whether you’re planning a six course feast or whipping up some pancakes for a lazy Sunday brunch, an outdoor kitchen is the place to do it. Botanical Visions specializes in the planning and construction of outdoor cooking facilities with easy access to your pool and garden.
A beautiful landscape garden doesn’t have to be totally ornamental - in fact, edible landscapes featuring non-GMO fruit trees, vegetables, and herbs are changing the way people across Florida live and eat. The Sunshine State’s tropical climate makes tropical fruit like mangoes, strawberries, jackfruit, mangosteen, and passion fruit ideal elements of any edible landscape - and there are dozens more to choose from.
An edible garden isn’t just good for your whole family’s health - featuring non-GMO edible plants and natural fertilizer - it’s also a great showpiece and conversation starter. Your family and guests will love eating fresh produce from your garden, and you can even take them on “pick and taste” tours of your garden to show off your sun-ripened delicacies.
