This deck is very simple, yet nature such as this doesn't need to be upstaged by decks. Instead, te perfect accompaniment is the simplest, yet most useful deck that blends with nature. I have the perfect location in mind to build a deck such as this onet. A place filled with nature and with a rushing river running through its backyard. ~EBM
"Our kitchen garden covers a small flat area and a rather steep embankment behind it. We terraced the slope and created the raised beds for the rotations. On top of the embankment we planted 15 blueberries from a number of varieties in a long raised bed. We use a crop rotation system in the majority of the beds. In the extra beds we plant seven year beans and over-wintering vegetables and all those plants that don't really fit the rotation cycle."
A small deck around a tree trunk... could make a pleasant retreat, would be easier to maintain than a bench or chairs which the lawn people always mess up... maybe with some planters/raised beds around it to soften the look? .....if we ever get a home with random huge trees in the backyard, this would be a good idea.
