Sit and Stay Awhile Give your guests a selection of spots to sit and relax by providing built-in seating. (Plus, the more seating your deck offers, the less furniture you have to purchase.) Keep in mind that if you live in a hot, sunny climate, shade from large trees or buildings can make your deck even more welcoming.
Raised Bed Gardening. I love this layout. The stones create a pathway through the garden. Climbing plants can be planted along the trellis. Flowers can be planted along the path. Herbs and veggies can be planted in the raised garden beds, and are protected from little critters eating them before you do!
