Turn a large backyard into an outdoor living space by creating zones. THIS is what I mean by "areas" - having different zones for different furniture / purpose - love the look of solid mixed with smaller squares w/ rocks peeking out - not grey ones
Were you aware there is a proper way to lay deck boards? Take a look at the end of the board. See the direction of the wood grain? You want to lay the boards down so that the wood grain on the ends look like a rainbow.
