There’s nothing like enjoying your landscape on a hot day while staying out of the sun. A pavilion is a structure that is covered on top with open sides, and it’s a highly requested addition from homeowners. You’ll often see them as a place for shelter in parks, but they’re also ideal in backyards for many reasons — especially in metro Atlanta. A pavilion allows your landscape to have a functional space that’s perfect for getting out of the sun and relaxing. You can choose to customize the space under it in so many ways: use it as an outdoor living space complete with seating and a TV, use it for your cookouts by installing an outdoor kitchen area, use it for entertaining by turning it into an outdoor bar, and much more.
A pavilion is an eye-catching focal point. If your landscape looked unfinished or unbalanced before, a pavilion does an excellent job of tying the design together. Depending on how the rest of the landscape is set up, it can be easily be incorporated into your existing landscape or patio. When guests arrive, they’re automatically drawn to your pavilion and comfortable seating.
It adds value to your property. Your new pavilion becomes the go-to place for family and friends to hang out. They can relax in comfort and are they’re protected from the sun and rain. Plus, whether you plan to sell sooner or later, it’s a benefit for most interested homebuyers to have this unique feature. That pavilion will automatically increase the value of your home.

Under Deck Storage & Workshops
If you have under-utilized space under a deck, you can add to the appearance, comfort, and value of your home by using it for specific needs. Your project not only captures additional outdoor living space, but defines the area under your deck by adding character. Ideally you’ll make sure it’s waterproof though an under deck system that diverts water to downspouts — leading it away from the area below your deck. Add lights, outlets, hooks and shelves to store lawn mowers, leaf blower, wheelbarrows and garden tools. You could also use the space as a workshop for building special projects. In that case, it would be wise to include walls and a lockable door.
When you have a higher deck (at least 8 feet to the ceiling), you can install pavers or a concrete patio beneath the deck. Add lattice for privacy and outdoor furnishings and – POW – you’ve got a great space for outdoor parties or a relaxing oasis for hot days.
Have small children? Your under-deck area is a great place to play when you equip it with toys, a sandbox or even a spiral slide down from the deck. If you’d like to enjoy it yourself, hang a swing bench and enjoy your children or a different vista to your backyard. If you would like to explore ways you can imagine the space under your deck, contact us today.
Privacy Screens Protect Your Personal Space
Just as the name implies, privacy screen helps to block out unpleasant external sights that would otherwise create an eyesore or visual disturbance. Plus they screen your activities and movements from the watchful eyes of neighbors.
Privacy screens are used for a variety of purposes. If you play host to regular family get-togethers and friendly BBQs, or prefer a more relaxed space to unwind with a book and a glass of wine, privacy screens can give you a more enjoyable space — and even peace of mind.
Is your view of the backyard (or neighborhood) less than perfect? A privacy screen can obscure unsightly items are a necessity we can’t part with. (Think wheelbarrows, tanks, tools etc.) Using a privacy screen you can shield these items from view. Because they also allow airflow through the slats, they make your time outdoors even more enjoyable. Finally, the many design styles offer you options that will truly complement your home’s exterior.

Exterior Spiral Stairs Have Unique Benefits
Gaining popularity over the last decade, spiral stairs enjoy many benefits when paired with a back deck or porch. We know from experience as Atlanta Decking has been building custom spiral stairs for many years. If you have a smaller yard or deck and a standard staircase is not a viable option, spirals can be a perfect fit as they’re a great space server with a smaller footprint. Find out all the special features and benefits of an exterior spiral staircase by contacting us for a free design consultation.
The Popularity of Sheds
There are many reasons our customers choose to build a shed on their property. For example, a storage shed helps open up the living space in your home. It allows you to keep tools and items you don’t use regularly out of sight and protected. That includes bulky, unattractive equipment such as weed whackers, lawn mowers and other tools. A shed helps reduce clutter and keeps things organized. A storage shed can even be used as a professional studio, office or playhouse.
If you’re considering a shed, let’s talk about how it can become the perfect structure for your residence. Contact us today to consider all the design possibilities!
Stairs & Railings Don’t Have to Be Boring
Just as there are a myriad of deck styles, know that stairs and railings offer many design options, too. To start with, you may choose open stairs or one with risers (also called ‘toe kicks’). Depending on space, you may consider stairs with a landing, straight stairs or even spiral stairs. Material choice is yet another thing to consider. You will probably wish to use match your deck — whether it’s pressure-treated pine, hardwood or composite. We can help walk you through design options and recommendations.
