Low Level Raised decking Patio

This deck was the ideal solution to deal with these old fashioned, poorly designed and dangerous step to the garden. The raised deck was able to sit nicely over the steps - once the top layer had been taken off! You will see the various stages of building a deck in the image sequence.

Low level raised decks are an ideal way to utilise outdoor leisure space for whole family, and are not as difficult to build as the high level raised decks. the same work goes in, but with feet firmly on ground!

Good quality decking and structural timbers are essential. This raised deck totally changed the way in which the owners could access and use their garden.
