The new redwood deck complete with a table, chairs and a shade umbrella provides the perfect base for a large entertaining area. The planks are oriented this way so that when you're in the house they grab the eye and lead it up and out into the surroundings. The bonus of using redwood is that it has a high acid content, making it naturally resistant to termites, and because it's from the heart of the tree, it should last for years.
