Some people look at their empty backyard and assume it has to be bordered with greenery on the edges. It's the same mistake people make indoors by placing their furniture against walls. Instead, realize that greenery and flowers don't have to be relegated to the edge of the property, but can be in the middle or in different sections. How you position plants, landscape beds and other garden elements will effect how and where seating and an outdoor kitchen will be placed.
If space permits, plant trees in containers to give your courtyard garden a vertical element. Trees need large pots unless you plan to prune roots on a regular basis. If your courtyard is small, you might need to rely on vines trained on tall trellises and walls to add vertical movement to your garden.
Starting at the house and going with the grain or the length of the boards, sweep the deck with the pressurized water, overlapping as you go along to help prevent streaks. Raise the nozzle of the power washer several feet off the surface of the deck and maintain this height to prevent gouging the wood surfaces. This method is slower and requires more strokes as you clean the deck, but it does the job. Be sure to also clean the railings, posts and stairs.
There are many factors to consider when determining your budget for your new deck. The more elaborate your deck design and the choice of materials will increase the cost of the deck, so keep those factors in mind.
