Deck Ideas that Work by Peter Jeswald

With potted plants, prickly roses, and a low planting bed, there's a little something for every taste here, but rather than feel overwhelming, it works. Although it may not appear so at first it's organized-the potted plants are grouped together and flank the door; the roses climb the house and wall and pop up out of the bed; and the bed is populated mainly by a single plant.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Book to Know: 'Deck Ideas That Work'
Finishing touches. Furniture, plants and other outdoor accessories bring the best of modern life outdoors. Organize plants in a container garden that adds color and structure to the deck and can be used to flank doorways and stairs. Extend the use of your deck throughout the year with a chiminea, freestanding fireplace, fire pit or outdoor heaters powered by electricity or gas. Outdoor heaters can range from small, inexpensive tabletop units to larger, more costly freestanding gas units on wheels, allowing you to move them to where the heat is needed most.
Laura Fenton added this to Rocking Chairs Roll Onto Porches
Four green rockers surround a low-slung table for a living room–like effect on this brick patio.
Samantha Schoech added this to Color Guide: How to Work With Green
Hunter-green trim on a natural shingle-style house. It's cozy cottage without being overly cute or feminine.
