Deck design help/question


Hey Everyone

Looking for some ideas/help with my deck. As you can see from the photo we had a deck around an above ground pool. We took the pool down at the end of last season and are having topsoil delivered soon. My question is what do to with the deck, my wife just wants to put a railing around the edge so as not to loose any more yard and put a fire pit in the yard behind. I hate to tear it down but I was thinking of just completing the rectangle. If I just add a railing around the edge do you think it will look weird/half a$$? This will be a DIY project by the way. Any suggestions are appreciated.

Yeah I was just trying to look for ways to minimize covering up more yard. My yard isn't huge to begin with. I would just tear the whole thing down but the yard is significantly sloped under the deck. We have a 2 story 1 attached to the house so it is really overkill.
