Are you planning to update your backyard to include an outdoor living space? If you don’t have a patio or it is too small, upgrading to a larger space can give you more room to entertain and relax outside of your home. While a patio is pleasant, there are advantages to opting to go with a wood deck instead. Here are some of the benefits of a deck if you are planning to update your outdoor living space.
- Rise above. While patios are installed in the soil, decks are raised and above the dirt. This has many benefits, including less mud and dirt to clean off the surface and less debris tracked into your home. This is something to consider if you have pets or kids that run in and out of the house into the backyard.
- Multiple levels. Decks can be one level or multiple levels, it all depends on what you prefer and the design of your home and property. You can have a viewing deck off your upstairs bedroom, a deck for entertaining and even connect the two if you prefer.
- Beauty. Wood decks are beautiful and have so many design options. You can build seating into your deck, planters and many other options. Higher level decks can offer a better view than a patio, a great way to enjoy a sunset, or sunrise, depending on where it is located.
Before you decide whether a deck or patio is best for your outdoor living space, talk to your local landscape contractor that offers both options. Depending on your home, lifestyle and property, a wood deck may be the best fit for your needs.
