As the leaves start to change color, you may find yourself reminiscing about the hours of enjoyment spent outside on your deck. While warm-weather gatherings and summer barbecues are a favorite pastime of the season, the combination of foot traffic, food spills and weather can take its toll on any deck.
Lighting is also important when you want to create an inviting courtyard that takes on a magical feel after dark. Twinkling light strings in trees, along walls or on trellises make every evening a festive occasion. Candles enhance intimacy, and paper lanterns invite a party. Choose lights that support your courtyard garden’s theme. Illuminate key features, like a fountain, and always light walkways for safety.
While you may be staining just the newly replaced deck board, Decks.com advises that you stain your entire deck once a year starting soon after it's installed. Some pressure-treated wood requires a 30- to 90-day drying-out period. Ask your installer how long you should wait before staining your pressure-treated wood deck.
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.
