Building a deck on your home is a timeless investment that continues to provide great opportunities. What’s better than having a summer barbecue with friends and families? But not all decks are built the same. Don’t settle for just any old deck, make sure you have one of the best decks on your block with these three awesome deck features.
1. A Garden Path Deck
Perhaps one of the best compliments to a beautiful Maryland custom deck is a beautiful garden. With a garden path deck, you can combine the two for amazing results. These decks tend to be narrower, they are paths, and are typically connected to a central traditional deck. Garden Path Decks allow you to show off your green thumb in the most amazing way, by walking straight through your garden.
2. Tree-Hugging Deck
No we don’t mean tree hugging in the 60’s summer of love and Jimi Hendrix kind of way. A tree-hugging deck is just that, a deck that surrounds, or hugs, a tree. Not only do they look wonderful, but they can also be a great way to integrate your deck into your yard, plus they can offer a solution if you’d rather not chop down a tree. We recommend consulting an arborist prior to construction to ensure you allow enough room for the tree to grow.
3. A Destination Deck
Traditionally decks are built adjacent or connected to your home. But where is it written in stone that they have to be? Destination decks are decks that are constructed away from your home, really anywhere you like. Perhaps you’d like a custom Maryland deck put in the back of your yard where you can sit around a fire. Maybe you’d like one nestled in the trees so you can absorb all of nature’s beauty. No matter where you would like your destination deck, it can be done when working with a professional Maryland custom deck installer.
