Patios and Pool Decks

Pavers and Travertine are more durable and can handle more weight than standard concrete.

Patios and Pool Decks

Patios and pool decks are more than just easy-to-maintain spaces for grilling hot dogs in the backyard. They serve as an extension of our family rooms into the great outdoors, playing a pivotal role in our lifestyle.

At Azalea Pools and Outdoor Living, we ensure that patios and pool decks are fundamental elements of our custom pool installation packages. We work closely with you to craft and implement pool decking designs that blend seamlessly with the overall aesthetic of your outdoor living space. Our designs set the stage for incorporating amenities such as outdoor kitchens and grill islands, fire pits, fireplaces, seat walls, and more, thus elevating the functionality and beauty of your patio and pool deck area. With a team that’s not only CMHA certified but also boasts over 20 years of experience in creating outdoor paradises for our clients in the Raleigh area, we’re dedicated to transforming your vision into reality.

There are a variety of materials that can be used in patio and pool deck installation but the most popular are:

  • Concrete Pavers
  • Travertine
  • Porcelain Tile
  • Natural Stone

Concrete pavers are mold-formed concrete modulated blocks at least 2 3/8 inches thick.  Pavers can be molded into different shapes, colors, and sizes. Some pavers, like tile, can have color throughout or just stamped on the face of the paver.  With its high compressive strength of at least 8000 psi, pavers are more durable and can handle more weight than standard concrete or asphalt. We recommend several paver brands including Cambridge, Belgard, and Techo-bloc.

Travertine is very popular, especially as a pool surround.  If you want your outdoor space to remind you of a Roman bath, then travertine will be perfect. Travertine is the best material available to help achieve that beautiful timeless Italian feel.  

Porcelain tile is becoming an extremely popular choice. Porcelain tile is versatile and creates elegant patios around your new pool.

Natural stone is another popular choice for patio installation. If you use natural stone, you will have to deal with bumps, ridges, and varying heights and weights. Irregular flagstone pieces have a more rustic look, while cut, geometric shapes are more formal.

By working with Azalea Pools and Outdoor Living, we strive to realize your vision of pool and outdoor living.  If you live in the Raleigh, Wake Forest, Cary, or Chapel Hill areas, we would love the opportunity to work with you to create a wonderful outdoor space.  Contact us today!

Custom patios and walkways we've built


Paver patios and walkways offer versatility, durability, and aesthetic appeal. Unlike traditional materials, pavers can be molded into various shapes, sizes, and colors, providing a customized look.

We recommend concrete pavers, travertine, and natural stone. Concrete pavers offer durability and versatility, while travertine provides a timeless, elegant feel. Natural stone adds a rustic or formal touch, depending on the cut and shape.

Our experienced team works closely with clients to design and install patios and walkways that complement their outdoor space. We aim for cohesive unity, considering factors like existing landscaping, architectural style, and desired features such as outdoor kitchens or fire pits.

With over 20 years of experience and CMHA certification, our team excels in building outdoor dreamscapes tailored to Raleigh area clients. We prioritize quality craftsmanship, attention to detail, and customer satisfaction.

We had a wonderful experience with Azalea Pools - we love our pool and backyard patio! Will designed an amazing pool with a waterfall feature and attached firepit area. Will and Heather were so easy to work with and they helped us through all the different steps to make sure the pool fit in just the right spot in our yard. Their attention to detail and quality were a perfect fit for this project. I would definitely recommend Azalea if you want to transform your backyard!

Will, Heather and their team did a beautiful job with our backyard oasis, from working with us in the design stage, to choosing materials and then the actual build process. They communicated well throughout, were honest and reliable, and we absolutely love the final product! We highly recommend!

We love our pool and entertainment area that Azalea Pools designed and constructed for us. We provided the basic elements we wanted (pool, built in grill with stone counters, firepit, etc) to Will. Heather took those and designed an amazing outdoor living space. Will handled all permits and communications with county personnel. As part of the construction we had to move our septic system. Will secured a septic expert and ensured that was handled as well. The Azalea Pools construction crew was professional, hard working and highly skilled. As a team, Azalea Pools did an amazing job of designing and creating a luxury outdoor space for our family and friends to enjoy.

I thought it would be valuable to post my experience 2 years after our pool was completed. When you make a major investment in a pool, you want it to hold up and pass the test of time. So far, our pool has been awesome and still feels and functions like a brand new pool. The attention to detail in design, even the components that you can't see that are buried under ground, are what set Azalea pools apart from the competition. Will and Heather helped us design our pool from scratch, bringing years of experience to the table to help us make decisions we would ultimately be proud of. They also helped connect us to a construction contractor to build an addition onto our house that also is part of our pool setup. Every single person that worked on this project had amazing work ethic, showed up every day and paid careful attention to every detail, not sacrificing a single minor thing. Honestly, it took a little longer than I expected (I was expecting 4-6 months and it took about 8), but this is the price of perfection. I should also mention that they did all of this during the early stages of the Covid pandemic, amidst a labor shortage and supply chain disaster. I honestly don't know how they pulled it off, but I do know they did an outstanding job. This is an honest company, run by honest professionals that take a great deal of pride in their work. If you are lucky enough to have Azalea design and build your pool, I am very confident you will be amazed the same way we have been. This was a once in a lifetime investment for us and we are very glad we chose Azalea.

Will and his crew designed and built this fabulous patio for us this past fall. We're so lucky to be able to enjoy this while we're staying home. I highly recommend them and will definitely be using them for the next project.
