What Houzz contributors are saying:

Erin Lang Norris added this to 12 One-of-a-Kind Trellis and Arbor Designs
Although this is quite a narrow structure, it still provides enough cover to filter the sunlight before it touches the plants below.
Becky Harris added this to 10 Ways to Bedeck Your Deck
This deck is nestled in the trees, and the detail over the planter brings the eye up to further emphasize the vertical.
Kenny Grono added this to Contractor Tips: Build a Top-Notch Deck
Although wood decking can be left to weather, some people don't want a gray deck and choose to stain and seal the wood. This prolongs the life of the deck and gives you many color options. Depending on the exposure, staining will need to be redone every two to five years.
Marianne Lipanovich added this to Harvest the Bounty of a Patio Garden
Here's the same idea of a planter box that's an extension of the adjoining deck, only this time on high. You could even grow some climbing edibles (tomatoes, beans, even grapes) over the trellis above. See more about vertical gardening
Vanessa Brunner added this to Choosing a Deck: Plastic or Wood?
CostComposite or plastic decking can be twice as expensive as wooden decking because the materials cost more and the structure tends to be more extensive. Composite decking isn't as stiff as lumber, so it generally needs more support to prevent sagging. This can easily add hundreds of dollars to your decking cost. Here are some average prices for a completed deck per square foot, according to Rossi and Jellema. Note that prices will vary according to location, design features and construction costs.Estimated price for a complete deck per square foot: Pressure-treated wood: $15-$25 Cedar: $24-$45Composite: $32-$45Redwood: $30Top-end plastic: $48Ipe: $55This photo: Redwood deckingPhotos: See thousands of deck designs | Get help with your deck or patio

Maintenance No matter what material you choose for your deck, it's going to need maintenance — a minimum of one annual cleaning. Most composites and plastics need a regularly applied finish (once or twice a year) to keep from fading, but most decking wood can be left finished or unfinished. While wood is more susceptible to rot and warping, mold spots are more difficult to remove from composite and plastic decking.
