How much wood and how do I build a deck/patio on the ground? I am trying to put my kids pool up. The pool is 12'x36" round. My yard is super unlevel. I wanted to build a retaining wall but digging in pure rock is too hard for me.
I think I will build a deck on top the ground for less digging and It would be nice to have a landing from when they get out of the pool.
I plan on doing it about a 14'x14' square patio/deck. with it being 3 foot high on one corner and the oposite corner would be on the ground with a post in the ground to stableize it.
I am trying to save the money for the material and get advice on how much of stuff I need.
Thanks for your help.
