When it comes to the most important tip to keep in mind, using the right tools and supplies easily tops the list. If you aren’t doing this then the project tends to go much less smoothely, you may not get the results you’re after, and the decking may not last as long as you hoped since the wrong supplies and materials were used.

It comes down to all the little things, details as small as the screws you use on the decking. There are very specific types that are meant to be used that will offer the kind of support the deck needs to remain durable.

Go In With a Plan

It’s also important that you approach your DIY project with a plan. Rather than having a “rough idea” of what you want your yard to look like, actually map it out on a piece a paper. Plot everything from the size and configuration of the deck, where you plan to place any greenery or gardens, walkways, lighting, seating, and so on.

By having this detailed plan to work from, it will make the project flow much smoother. It will also help you to figure out such things as measurements, the materials needed, and even the order in which to go about the various tasks.

Give Thought How You Plan to Use the Space

As you draw up your detailed plan, you also want to give thought as to how you plan to use the space. Is this mainly going to be for relaxing, do you want to be able to entertain large crowds outdoors, maybe you want to incorporate an outdoor kitchen into your plan.

Don’t Forget Décor

Even the most professional looking deck and landscaping project will lack personality until you add décor. Décor isn’t just for the interior, it can also be used to jazz up your outdoor space. Things such as seat cushions, outdoor tableware, lighting, art work, and planters can all act as décor. Often it’s best to pick a theme or color palette, and then work from there.

Your Perfect Outdoor Space

By following these simple tips, and going about the project in a methodical and organized manner, you’ll be able to create the perfect outdoor space that fits your lifestyle and needs.
