Something for Everyone

Among the many new trends in deck design are multi-level decks for different activities, finished decks which increase your outdoor entertaining options and decks with added water features like this versatile design from AZEK which includes a spa pool and is available in different colors and grain textures. 

The View Master

A handsome Ipe deck with stained concrete raised planters takes advantage of its spectacular hillside setting in this elegant design from Jeffrey Gordon Smith Landscape Architecture.

The Beauty Down Below

The view from this deck may be spectacular but demanding equal attention is the innovative floor design from Sogno Design Group which arranged Bison Ipe pallets on a leveler system over roofing. 

Considering Another Angle

Another view of the Bison Ipe pallet based deck demonstrates how the outdoor entertainment space flows into other areas of the home through a natural, organic design.

Soaking in the Sun

This picturesque combination of deck and spa pool from Bel Air Construction utilizes Redland Rose AZEK decking which is composed of a low maintenance, stain- and scratch-resistant material.

Step Up to Luxury

An Australian hardwood known as Yellow Stringybark provides the decking and steps in this stunning patio/pool combination from COS Design with landscaping by Signature Landscapes and pool by Serenity Pools. 

Different Levels, Different Views

If you want to try something different from the standard one-level deck, why not consider a design like this from the MOSAIC Group which offers multiple vantage points and views and showcases your backyard to its best advantage?

Pool and Harbor Combo

Taking full advantage of a waterside location is this compact and stylish design from CplusC Architectural Workshop that incorporates a pool with Australian hardwood decking plus lovely views and easy open water access.

Tree Friendly

Integrating nature with your outdoor deck design enhances any entertainment space and here is a novel approach from Urrutia Design that combines trees, potted plants and shade features with Ipe wood, locally made bricks, redwood balusters and a fire pit.

Hidden Spa

This rustic design combines nature and an intimate area for entertaining and features a deck with a concealed spa from Projects by Giffin & Crane. 

Pool and Garden Access

Decks with a completely finished underside are becoming more popular and this example from Tufdek presents an ideal entertainment space that enjoys easy access to both pool and garden areas. The striking exterior vinyl waterproof flooring is available in a variety of colors and offers years of durability.

Australian Awesomeness

This imaginative configuration incorporates trees, bamboo, walkways, an outdoor oven and decking made from Yellow Stringybark into a natural open space by COS Design. Landscape by Signature Landscapes.

Wet Deck

Multi-decks allow you to diversify your outdoor space based on a variety of activities such as this set up from Kane Landscapes which prominently displays a spa area on one level and a garden patio area above it. 

Into the Woods

Kona and Redland Rose colors accent this design that uses AZEK decking and custom railings with Decorator Frontier glass balusters to create the sense of an outdoor entertainment space nestled deep in the woods. 

Supreme Pine

A natural wood stain gives this multi-level pressure-treated pine deck a rich color to stand out against the greenery while offering long-lasting protection and years of use.
