Adding Grill Deck

I'm seeking advice on whether to use footings or concrete blocks for this project. My worry with footings is the depth--the long side of the deck in the attached picture will slightly overlap septic lines. I do plan to attach the grilling deck to the bottom stair and stair support posts (and I've read if it's going to be attached, then use footings). Can I get away with concrete blocks? If I definitely need footings, how deep should the holes be?

Re: Adding Grill Deck

You need more than one post before posted pictures show up.
The footing depth is the local frost depth for your area.
If you are attaching to a structure that does have footing. you should have footings.
If it is free standing and you can put up with a little movement from one year to the next the footing aren't so important.
