Can you please tell me what you used to hide the underside of the deck? Thank you.
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
This is the perfect alternative to lattice wood that is typically used for high decks. I personally dislike that look. I have a traditional colonial that is built on a slope. This would be perfect.

How tall is the patio wall?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
My guess would be about 16 to 18" tall, because that's a comfortable sitting height. Making a wall high enough and deep enough to sit on is a good way to add extra seating to your patio.
