Some timbers bleed really badly. Choose the right timber for your application. Recycled timbers are good because the tannins have already been leached out. The timber used around this pool is Spotted Gum and Teak is good but expensive . Merbeau timber is the worst for leeching tannins so do not use this near your pool. Rule of thumb " the more expensive the timber the less it leeches colour "

Hi. As the photographer I can't be too sure. Although I'd guess clumping bamboo.

deck overhang of the pool could be walkway to pavilion and separating lawn from pool
