Deck - Hi, When creating a raised deck like this, what do you out below? I have grass and would like a raised deck. Thanks!

Because there's no light under the deck, grass won't grow. It's good to put down 1" to 2" thick layer of gravel above soil, and leave space for good air circulation.

Staining - Did you pre-stain the cedar before constructing the privacy screen? Also, how many coats did you apply? Thanks.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Annie Thornton added this to Great Design Plant: Cabbage Tree
You can also grow cordylines in raised beds and containers to keep their size down. C. australis 'Paradise' is shown in this design by Debora Carl.Planting notes. Cabbage Tree, native to New Zealand, grows well in temperate maritime climates with mild winters. While it is the hardiest of the cordylines, climates that dip much below 15 degrees Fahrenheit are too extreme. Plant in full sun and allow for its deep root system to become established. Cabbage Tree prefers fertile, well-drained soil — moist soil may result in root rot. Provide additional water during extremely dry periods and when establishing the plant, but for the most part Cabbage Tree will survive without additional irrigation. Cordylines in general are resilient trees, are long lived and can even recover trauma as severe as fire.See more guides to great design plants

could use this step design at side of house to sun room to direct people to the deck rather than the side sunroom door. add a railing where the that estends from the hinge side of the door and arround to towards the back corner of the sun room
