Raised Deck Ideas for Your Backyard

If you have a sloping or uneven outdoor space, building a raised decking with decking boards is a great idea. A raised decking allows you to make use of your sloping outdoor space. No matter how sloping your garden is, a raised decking will create a level surface where you can unwind and do other activities. You can even use the space beneath your deck to store things. This article will discuss raised decking ideas for your garden.

Simple Ideas for Raised Decking

1 Add Frames

If you want to make your raised decking stand out, a good idea for your garden is to consider adding a frame for a finished look. You can choose to add a rectangular or circular framework to your decking.

A rectangular frame is one of the common designs for a raised decking. Rectangular framing provides flexibility when it comes to style. A curved frame, on the other hand, is modern and contemporary offering a unique design that will make your outdoor space more appealing.

2 Multi-Colour Decking 

Another raised decking idea is a multi-colour decking system. Using different colours of decking can make your raised decking stand out. Composite decking comes in different colours that you can choose from. You don’t need to paint the deck in different colours as you can with a wooden deck. However, when choosing different colours for your decking, choose colours that complement each other.

3 Add a Shade

To further complement their decking area, homeowners can add a shade over the decked area with the addition of a gazebo or a pergola. Despite the weather, a shade allows you to unwind outdoors any time of the day come rain or shine.

4 Build Stairs

You can add stairs to match your elevated composite decking. Composite decking stairs are prone to less damage and will last longer than wood. Additionally, a stair allows for easy access to a raised decking area on sloping ground. Instead of sticking to the traditional stair design, you can choose a spiral stair design if you want a modern contemporary look.

5 Add Balustrades

Adding balustrades is a good raised decking idea for your garden. It not only increases the visual appearance of your deck but also provides safety. Since an elevated decking is above the ground, you and your loved ones are safe and protected. With a balustrade, you can relax or play on the deck with your kids without fear of falling off the deck.

6 Deck Skirting

Deck skirting is another good idea and an attractive feature you can use to complement your raised decking area and make it stand out. It is easy to install and a perfect addition to your garden decking. A composite skirting will also last longer than other skirting materials.

7 Install Deck Lighting

An illuminated decking area can look so appealing, especially at night. It can also provide safety while having a great outdoor experience. With lights installed on the decking, there is little chance of trips or falls. Lights on your raised decking can offer a unique visual appearance making it stand out from other decking designs.

Conclusion

Raised decking ideas for your garden can include the addition of planters with flowers, spiral stairs, lighting, and much more.
