What many people do not think about, however, is whether their backyard living space could be even more practical and more beautiful by utilizing a multi-level deck layout! One reason to build a multi-level deck is to accent a steep grade in your yard. Incorporate cascading landscaping and perhaps a rippling water feature into the design to trickle downhill with the levels of your deck. Adding levels to your deck design can help to distinguish different outdoor living areas from each other.
For the entertaining enthusiast, dedicate a level to bistro or pub tables and chairs and add an outdoor bar! A multi-level deck is more interesting to the eye and blends into the landscape better than posts and beams.
