If you wish to add a bit of your own construction to a perfectly lovely house or garden, a floating deck happens to be a really nice option. Unlike a traditional deck, a floating deck is not attached to your home and therefore does not require labor-intensive footings set below the frost line, nor does it require a ledger board to secure it to the house. Floating decks are not only beautiful and work to enhance the yard, but there are also a number of advantages that we derive from adding them to the yard. Floating decks are more than just a deck in the back of our yard. The floating deck that has been built in our yard is a beautiful space where we’ve added furniture, a shade cloth, a barbecue for grilling, and a massive table for friends and family to enjoy an outdoor meal.
Another advantage of a floating deck is that we do not need to worry about our outdoor furniture, shade, and the grill getting dirty and damaged when placed in the yard. The deck keeps everything conveniently elevated and protected. With kids and elderly parents around, we’ve always had the concern that the yard space poses a threat. Kids and the elderly can trip over items or hurt themselves while maneuvering through the yard. However, our deck provides them with a safe way to enjoy the outdoors without injury or issues.
