Make it Wonderful with Water Use a fountain to soften the noise of a busy street or to create a pleasant background sound. It's easy to add a water feature to your deck. Tuck small fountains in corners where they'll be out of the way or use a bigger, bolder piece as a dramatic focal point.
Easy peasy kindling rack: 2 cinder blocks + 4 chunks of wood you most likely will have in your scrap pile. Prop the pieces of wood in the 4 outer holes of the cinder block so that they fall away at an angle. Fill the void with kindling or firewood to dry.
