Free Decking plans & Deck sketch ideas

It is important to have plans drawn up for your decking scheme. Here are just a few ideas to whet your appetite.

Never forget that the deck should be an important link between house and garden. A good deck plan will take that into account.

Like it or not, most decks are based upon rectangles. Deckboards are after all rectangles. However, with a bit of insight and innovation, you can soon turn those rectangles into all manner of shapes. Anything from a basic square to a full circular deck can be accomplished, either with innovative planting plans, or by some basic design ideas with your future deck.


An initial deck plan can be done on any scrap of paper, then follow it through by some scribbles on a sheet of graph paper to get the dimensions and proportions of your deck project right.

The detailed plans of your decking project will take a bit more time - and expertise. You will probably know someone who can help with this maybe?

We give you some decking project ideas over the next few pages.
