I built this deck a few weeks back for my brother-in-law in Virginia. Pressure treated lumber screwed together. The triangular portion is built to cover up a trip hazard of eroded asphalt. I wondered how to attach a deck to asphalt, knowing a concrete anchor would work loose in no time. So I broke through the 2” of asphalt and put in some 4”x4” posts and lots of concrete to anchor it well. Came out very solid and it looks like it grew there.
