Above-ground swimming pool with wood deck

Wood decks built to surround above-ground pools give them a more-permanent look.

This above-ground swimming pool has a wooden deck surrounding it. What's different than others pictured in this slideshow: The pool does not completely "sink in" and the top of it isn't flush with the top of the deck, instead rising 3-4 feet above the level of the raised deck. The bottom of the pool probably sits on the ground -- the deck covers up the bottom portion of the pool.
