Deck Renovation Plan

Finally we started to plan our deck, which is one of two biggest projects this year.

Last summer, we trimmed all trees and left four large trees only. Last month, I saw our neighbor was cutting their trees and just can’t stop letting them cut one more for us 🌝.

Our backyard is actually a slope hill 🌚. It’s way beyond our budget to do all landscapes and hardscapes.

Because of the water ban, our lawn and vegetable garden looked dying last summer🙄. The current deck is really a mini one. It can’t get sun in late autumn, which makes me feel bad because I need to move my plants on grass, which will kill grass and looks ugly. So, an extend deck is what exactly we need😎

Our backyard has a lot issues.

First, we have water ban (I guess) every year and I don’t know why 🤷‍♀️. We absolutely need a irrigation well. I searched online, most people drill and install irrigation well around 3-5k, which is very acceptable, but the estimate we got is started at 10k and they don’t know how much exactly will go, all depending on how deep they need to drill, no kidding🙄.

Second, it leaks on the right corner of the basement when it’s pouring. Although it’s just a little bit leaking, we need to fix it by adding a French drain. Also, because it’s only a little bit leaking, I prefer to add the drain in the yard (underground) instead of inside basement. It can stop the water running towards the house instead of pump them out after they got into the house. Totally different.

Last thing is we need to move the sprinkler head which is right next to the old deck now. I guess it could be easily done when they dig the French drain, finger crossed.

The reason I prefer deck instead of patio or anything else is because I’m super duper afraid of frogs, deck is raised from grass which can reduce the possibility to meet frogs someday in summer🤦‍♀️.

For the materials of deck, we will do composite no doubt. I picked light grey or light wood color, so here is the plan. The deck would be around 800sf. It looks really square, so I pushed out the seating area a little bit. I drew some furniture just want to help Louis understand what’s going on🤦‍♀️. What I’m going to buy are just two chairs, and we already have an outdoor table (the cute west elm diamond table), that’s enough 😌. I’m not going to spend thousands of 💵 on sofa for dogs and cat🙄

Railing is really expensive, so we will make bench instead of railing. I can put all succulents on it, so excited about it. It’s gonna be amazing 🌸🌸🌸

Probably we will grow some flowers around the deck exactly like in picture. I bought 35 David Austin roses last year, they didn’t grow very well, so I bought 10 knock out this year, and can move the da to deck👀

Another feature I really want is a fireplace 🔥 🔥

this one is absolutely stunning but it’s too high and too wide, will block our sight.

But we can make this one 👇, how cute👀

That’s all about our deck plan. The quote we got is more than 40k 😂😂😂, that’s ridiculous. We have to get more quotes and see what’s next step! I’ll be out for vacation for all the April and come back in May, oops, I wish I can see a new deck when I get back home👀😳💩
