This pressure treated pine deck with the ramp was designed to accommodate friends and family who have a hard time with stairs. The use of solid board skirting will help keep small animals from nesting under the deck. Combining this project with a patio gives separate areas in the yard for dining and for lounging. The Holland stone Belgard pavers transition to the deck and the rest of the yard smoothly. This wood deck and Belgard paver patio was custom designed and built by Arlington Heights, IL deck and Belgard patio designer.
