Is this an above-ground pool or an in-ground pool?

An expansive and beautiful pool deck is the first thing you notice about this pool. The deck is large enough to accommodate lounge chairs, built-in benches, plants in containers, and whatever else one normally would place on a deck.

The white coping is a slight giveaway that this pool is an above-ground model. This is an excellent example how careful planning can make an above-ground pool look like an in-ground pool. It's a case of the ground rising up to meet the level of the pool, instead of using stairs or a ladder to access the above ground swimming pool. Nice work!
