In this video we show you in detail how to build a deck close to the ground. It starts with removing a concrete pad and continues with digging the foundation holes, framing, decking boards, stairs and more. We hope you find this video helpful and good luck with your project. Craig Heffernan

So if you don't remove the concrete below, the deck will eventually move? Also, did you router ALL the planks on the deck?

I helped my Uncle Maury (RIP) build his deck back in 1983, when I was seven. And by help, I mean I hammered about two nails! Did he hammer every nail? Watching this, it's making me tired thinking that he didn't have the power tools that you are using here! Anyway, the deck is still standing. And I still bring up how I helped my uncle build it everytime I go to that house!

the winter frost can only lift concrete if it gets underneath it, if you go down below the frost line (4ft) with concrete and and come up say 2ft around the post what is the problem? Then use dirt in the remaining 2ft.
