    Have Your Deck—and a Pond, Too Tom Hardy wanted a pond and a bigger deck, but he couldn't decide which he wanted more for his house in Canton, Georgia. So he enlarged the deck and put two ponds in it. He used rigid plastic tubs for the ponds, setting them into "sandboxes" under the deck. The deck boards were cut to follow the edges of the tubs. All together, the two tubs hold about 500 gallons of water and contain 18 large goldfish. A waterfall connects the higher tub to the lower one.

    Deck stairs and 14 foot slide

    Sunken deck and fire pit.

    Backyard patio ideas- pool off to left. Gardens all around. Pergola or canopy over table area with built in cooking area as well. Built in raised flower boxes instead of fire pit.

    Love this idea of putting a slide off the deck for the kids!!! Think of how much fun they'd have (& how much energy they'd burn) sliding down and running back up. :)

    Children's Play Area The best play structures are made to order and built on site. When buying—especially self-assembly—look for structures with appropriate safety certifications. Children's play areas require safe flooring material, for example 6 inches of play bark or a bonded-rubber surface.

    Best idea for a child's play room. A second-hand armoire repurposed as the secret entrance to a child's play room! Just take out the back and place in front of the doorway. Great way to keep a child's play area organized and so fun too! I ALWAYS PRETENDED I HAD A ROOM LIKE THIS THAT I GOT TO THROUGH MY CLOSET...so neat! DIY NARNIA!! xP

    Create outdoor kid's play area - like the visual separation of area with mulch etc.

    Deck on the EDGE of the WATER - what could be more relaxing?

    3 Season Porch - I like how the non-covered deck is extended beyond the covered portion on the side by the steps.
