Home depot vs lowes pressure treated wood


I am planning a deck on an above ground pool. In looking for the wood and decking, I went to home depot and lowes. The lowes wood seems to be wetter and had a green tint to it. The home depot was drier and had a nice tan color. I have read some reviews that the home depot pressure treated decking cracks/splits after a few months. Can anyone here guide me?

....dont use either one. Go to a couple local lumber yards and ask for premium pressure treated.
