large backyard need major help
December 29, 2012 in Design Dilemma
We have a very large backyard with existing small wood deck (estimated 13 years old) that is in desperate need of updating with landscaping & deck reno. We like the idea of adding a fireplace,entertaining area and possible type of covering over the area where the existing deck is only for the fact that the water drains from the roof off onto the deck every time it rains & completely soaks & ruins everything.I would like to keep as much natural light into the house as possible. We are very unsure where to start and what materials are best for investment,cost, & the style of our home (traditional southern). We are ok with doing the work that we can and possibly getting a contractor for whatever else needed.I also included a picture of the front of the house in hopes to match to the back patio.Any advice would be much appreciated.
