Landscaping: Installing a Wooden Deck

A deck can be a good all-weather alternative to grass or lawn, providing a space for entertaining or just relaxing on.

Decks can be built under cover or completely out in the open. Providing some cover, such as a pergola or roll-out awning, extends the year-long use of your deck.

There are three types of decking to consider when landscaping your block:

  1. Low-level decks: these decks extend out at the level of the floor on flat land, often adding outdoor space to a family room or living area.
  2. Remote decks: Not attached to the house, these are generally around pools, water features, spas, etc.
  3. They can also help retain the soil in such areas, to prevent erosion.
