Don’t neglect safety
Make sure your deck, steps, and railing are all well lit to make it more inviting and as a safety precaution to prevent accidents.
Don’t place a fire pit on the deck
It’s a fire hazard and likely prohibited if it burns real wood.
Don’t place potted plants on the deck without saucers
Saucers collect excess water and keep it—and soil—from spilling out onto the deck when watering. This will help prevent staining, moss growth and rotted deck boards.
