Deck Design From Concept to Reality

So what is the first step towards owning the kind of backyard that you’ve always dreamed about? Well a great design always starts with great function, but to get there we need to ask ourselves one basic, but often complicated question:

  • What it is we want our space to accomplish?
  • Will your space only be used for yard access?
  • Do you want to entertain in this space? How many people will be using this space at one time?
  • Do you want your deck to wrap around a pool or hot tub?
  • Should your space have multiple zones (ex. A dedicated area for barbecuing, dining, lounging, entertaining, etc)?
