If you have an uneven plot of land on your property, you may consider it a great waste of space (and rightfully so). But, there is a way to turn that space into a usable and enjoyable place to relax and entertain family and friends - build a deck !
Why Decking Makes a Great Site Leveler
Leveling out your garden could involve hauling in truckload after truckload of dirt. While dirt may seem inexpensive such a project can be very costly. Then, once the dirt is in piles in your yard, it still needs to be leveled out and seeded with grass or some other form of landscaping. To eliminate all of this work and the unpleasant slope, you could just build a deck.
Decking makes a wonderful site leveler because it can create a large and level seating area in a spot that was formerly unusable. It is also much less labour intensive than leveling out an area and building a flat patio. This means less out of pocket costs for you when it comes to installation. And, with the proper location of a deck, you have new storage options that never existed before.
Increasing the Value of Your Home
If there is a possibility that you will be selling your home within a few years, garden decking will prove to be an excellent investment. This cost effective home improvement project is practically guaranteed to add value to your home. Level areas are often more aesthetically pleasing to home buyers, and everyone loves the thought of having an outdoor area designed for relaxing and entertaining.
Because one end of your deck is bound to be elevated, it is a good idea to investigate local planning regulations prior to starting the build. Depending on where you live, there may be rules as to how high the deck can go. Adhering to such policies and getting planning permission can eliminate headaches later on.
