modern deck

Postby cougarider » Mon Mar 02, 2009 7:37 pm

I am looking for some help in how to build a deck that would be flush with the rest of my landscaping. Here are some photos of what I am looking to build. Any ideas on the basic framework for this? Photos will be posted soon on my whole backyard landscaping.

Questions about deck.

Would the wood on the deck be touching the soil below or should it be dug down to avoid direct contact?

Draining concern -Should I be concerned about digging the deck lower than the rest of the landscaping?

What type of wood should I use? I live in texas. Where's it's Hot!

Share any other concerns I should have. about having a flush deck.
