Cedar wood is a common material used for decks because it is naturally insect resistant, fire- resistant and stands up to decay when treated properly.

Another minimalistic idea is the ground level deck. The simple design creates the extra living space you need without the extravagance of a deck that takes over your entire backyard. Here, you can enjoy the natural beauty of your outdoor space with the practicality of a deck built with stunning redwood. Redwood, like cedar wood, proves to be insect, fire, and decay resistant when properly maintained.
