We were asked to lay decking across a poor, disfigured patio. This gave the rear french windows access to a large deck topped with a pergola that allowed already mature climbers to scramble and flower directly overhead. The integral diamond shaped step gives a strong, clean look. Note the open area left around central shrubs, again emphasising the designed feel of the deck.
Decking laid on pressure treated softwood frame using joists laid at 0.4m. centres and supported every 1.8m. by load spreading posts.
