A Dream View

An ideal setting with spectacular sightlines is the best reason to add a deck and this fabulous space from JW Architects takes full advantage of the view with a stylish design of cedar decking and TPO membrane (Thermoplastic polyolefin).

Treetop Views

A spacious deck from California Redwood serves as both an observation overlook and an outdoor entertainment space enhanced by its up-in-the-trees setting.

Palm Court Beauty

Beige and light gray concrete pavers provide visually appealing decking for this tropical courtyard highlighted by modular planter cubes and a wraparound seating design from Bison Innovative Products

Urban Sunbathing

A lovely rooftop garden makes an ideal place for sunbathing and showering in this Mataverde Ipe deck by City Beautiful, NYC.

In Praise of Wood

Modern urban design plus the beauty of natural wood create a stunning aesthetic in this combination of Ipe decking, raised planters and outdoor furniture.

Spa Fantasy

Shades of blue and purple transform this spa/waterfall creation from Caviness Landscape Design into a nocturnal fantasyland that stands out like a jewel amid the stone decking.

Natural Wonders

Incorporating nature into the floor plan is the theme of this innovative design in which living trees emerge through the redwood deck and function as living sculptures.

Twilight Sanctuary

The warm hues of Ipe wood and lush garden planters create an intimate outdoor setting at dusk in this urban deck design.

Contrasting Textures

For this balcony deck that runs the length of the house, parallel walkways of rock and wood slats in checkerboard patterns create an eye-pleasing design enhanced by the Day-Glo color palette.

The Bigger Picture

Around the corner from the balcony walkways is this wide open deck design featuring an elevated fountain pool with tile highlights and areas for sunbathing and entertaining.

Redwood Spa Zone

A fire pit with circular bench seating and a built-in spa make a chic but cosy combo in this handsome design featuring California redwood.

Warm Glow

An inspired combination of fire and water is the centerpiece of this penthouse patio/deck and sets the mood for a relaxed evening under the stars.

Consider the Possibilities

Instead of a traditional one level deck, why not create various areas for outdoor entertaining and activities with a multi-level design?

Garden Lounge

Movable planters allow you to create a relaxed environment that combines gardening with areas for relaxation in one open air space with Ipe decking
