6x6 pergola post ontop of deck floor or from the ground up?


im building a deck with a pergola on one side of the deck. trying to figure out if i should use the 6x6 post from the ground up or could i just set them ontop of the decking boards. if i bring them from the ground up i would have to notch the 6x6"s out 3 " for the rim joist to sit around them. can anybody give me some advice on this thanks alott

what's holding up the deck - why not use the 6x6 posts for both decking and overhead pergola?
