have either a deck or a patio, but not both. Not so, says Jeswald. A deck and patio can work very well together, especially on a sloping site, or when you want to make a graceful transition between inside and outside with a few feet of height between the two. In this example, a small deck area with a

The multiple stairs to the front deck of the house would have a recessed foundation to appear as if the house is floating / suspended, like this.
split level back grass and white rock.
Love the dark paint on underside of decking
a way to float a deck without needing
Split number two explodes with additions of different forms on its back side. What appears to be a modest set of changes at the front gives way to a riot of new construction at the back.

Love the grid deck rail. Can you provide a source?
lot in austin; deck wrapped around tree;
House wraps around the deck, and you see the outside all open.
I like the tree coming through the deck.
wow nice back side of house!
Saving the tree in midle of deck.
LOVE the tree coming out of the deck
The house progresses down a sloped lot, with increased heft as it goes. It’s squeezed around the oak tree in the middle, and a deck wraps the tree, making it the centerpiece of the design.A side yard provides space for play, and a pathway of loose rocks works as a swale to guide rainwater to the creek
area of protection. Foundation walls and major construction activity also cannot occur near the root zone of the tree. In the photo here, the home and deck are built around a lovely sculptural tree.See more of this house

love the steps How do we go about building them
Not my choice, our client wanted the "so called no maintenance deck" this is a plastic/trex like deck it has a real faux looking wood grain but we did take advantage of the fact that it could touch soil.
The large steps & placement off the deck
i'm thinking wood for the deck (not stone) - could be an interesting transition down
these are the transitions at lower level deck pads. not fond of the mitered trim on top. would take all the way to end and cap with outer trim.
Decking can feel very stark in a garden layout due to the nature of the materials and the amount of space. This decking is considerably softened by raising each deck above the next and by edge planting grasses.
