Build to your space
When planning your deck, consider the space you have to build it in. Is your backyard large, small, or maybe irregular?
With a small backyard, double-check your local building codes about setback requirements for your property. Design-wise, consider a multi-level deck that makes use of vertical space. The lower level could become a convenient storage space or patio. But remember, grills should not be used under decking areas due to ventilation and fire hazards.
If you have a lot of space, nothing will let your imagination run wild like Trex®. Anything's possible - multiple levels, pergolas or gazebos, sweeping curves and more. Large yards can be split into different activity areas - like a garden, a grilling station, a pool, etc.
An irregular space actually lets Trex's flexibility really shine. Trex's ability to create curves lets you work around any obstruction, and easily maximize your space. What you thought were useless areas can become perfect nooks to enjoy your time outside.
