Multi-Layered Deck Design
To maximize the use of your outdoor space, consider multi-layered deck design as your go to solution. Depending on your design preference and space availability this could include a platform deck built right into the surrounding environment raised off the ground to allow valuable storage space under the platform. A Sunken deck also compliments the raised deck and often provide increased privacy. This multilevel deck design also works well in a transitional design from outdoors to indoors. Projects like this require knowledgeable landscape planning!
One of the most beautiful things about a real wood multi-layered deck is its ability to blend with so many other materials, especially organic materials like sand, rock, grass, plants and trees in a properly landscaped environment. If you design the wood decking to butt up against other natural materials, you invite guests to interact directly with your garden or other landscaping features in a natural and comfortable manner.
A Sunken Deck offers Privacy
This multilevel deck environment can be extended to a sunken deck which can provide more privacy and can accomplish a beautiful and natural transition to a garden area. Utilizing natural woods that are weather treated will ensure years of enjoyment for both the deck and your garden for a design that maximises all the features of your outdoor living space.
Some newer housing plans are now including a transitional deck design right in the original house plans making the transition from home to deck natural, subtle and inspiring; It is then up to you to landscape the yard to take advantage of such a wonderful feature.
Multilevel Deck and your Pool
If your back yard features an in-ground pool remember that while a multilevel deck can greatly increase the beauty and privacy of the pool that everything surrounding the pool should be modified wood treated especially for this purpose.
