Deck renovation ideas
I have 0 experience with decks, though I tend to agree, it looks nice as it is. I'd just fill in the picture surrounding it with plantings, or accent/trim color.
1) What kind of wood is the pergola made of, and is it stained or bare?
2) I'm not familiar with the method/materiel used on your stairs for outdoor use, but I like it! Just black steel stringers or something with wood plank secured to it for stairs? Any details on that, and where to find those would be great, thanks.
