Learn how to choose the perfect deck for your home.

We are officially in the new year, which means it is the perfect time to start planning exterior features for your home.  Right now is the best time to plan your home decking so that your family can enjoy it once spring and summer come around.  Choosing a deck for your home is not as stressful and time-consuming as you might think.  Luckily, there are a few simple tips you can follow when you are ready to choose the perfect deck for your home.  

Location is Crucial

When planning a deck for your home, you have to take location and position into consideration.  You need to choose a location where people can socialize and relax comfortably as a position that allows people to travel around the structure easily.  You want to organize your deck so you can have specific areas on your deck.  You should have enough room on your deck for specific furniture items so that people can relax.


When it comes to decking, there are a few deck materials you can choose from including wood and composite.  Carroll Landscaping offers wooden and composite decks for your whole family to enjoy.

  • PVC Decking: If you want to have the look of a wooden deck without the consistent maintenance, then you should choose a composite deck.  The decking material is comprised of only recycled plastic making it one of the most low-maintenance materials on the market.  It is extremely durable so it will withstand all the elements including snowstorms.  It is stain resistant so it will hold up well to everyday wear and tear.
  • Wooden Decks: If you want a classic style deck for your property, then you should choose a wooden deck.  The material requires regular maintenance throughout the year but is highly durable.  A wooden deck will give your home a natural, classic look.
