Here a deck has been used in a dank, shady, courtyard to raise the level of the garden and throw light back into the house.
The classic space at the rear of every Victorian terrace can become a very pleasant sitting space. Too often this space can become a refuge for broken pots, spilled compost and finally a cat's toilet! This little deck is raised to the same height as the back door giving quick, easy access.
The deck in this photo has been raised approx 2m above the garden the height at which the back door gained access to the garden via a steep set of steps. The deck acts as a landing which catches more sun, giving quick coffee time access but also takes advantage of fantastic views across Bristol.
A family deck tucked into a corner beside the family's garage. Originally laid to lawn this space was elevated from a leftover dumping ground to becoming the heart of the garden where the family can eat and entertain.
Timber decking is a very flexible material and can be laid to any level as well as fitting in with most designs. Here the deck zig-zags around a triangular water feature.
Decking can be combined with paving to soften a large paved garden. Here a formal water feature is enhanced with this timber garden pathway.
