Garden Patio Decking in L - shape.

Large garden patio deck with balustrades and steps down to main garden. The deck was built in a L shape. This type of deck design often offers a huge increase in 'available' deck area without encroaching onto the garden  space too much.

The protruding section of the L shape decking is usually free of 'hidden pathways' along the deck and can often be utilised as a separate decking room. 'Pathway runs' across the deck - typically from rear house door through to garden, can often take out much of the usable deck space. Think the deck pathways carefully in your overall deck design.

Finished softwood garden patio deck with steps, balustrade and trellis screening40 sq metres of old paving to take up - Oh Joy! The paving had to be taken up in this instance to allow enough working depth to get decking patio under the door sill and Damp Proof Course. Spacer washers were used to keep the deck frame and deck away from the house wall to width of 1cm. Most of the old paving was disposed of under the extended part of the deck that overhung the old patio.

L shape deck with sturdy modern balustrade, small staircase and screening trellis to one end of this large Decking Project. The deck took 6 days to complete - mainly because of the very changeable weather conditions. A huge amount of available and usable space had now replaced the old decrepit patio area.
