Need a solution to this ugly area


Hi there we are looking to do some sort of landscaping below our deck to make it look better. This is the side of the home you see as you drive up our driveway. We have removed everything under the deck and are ready to start making it look better. Any ideas would be great.

Move the driveway and plant some trees.

Maybe patio pavers for a shaded sitting space under the deck and border them with boxwood/holly/ some kind of low bushes and possibly some perennial/annual flower beds. jmo

I'm thinking several things as I look at that picture.

The cheapest thing is to mow & trim, and keep it mowed and trimmed. Doesn't matter how nice your house looks, if the yard is shaggy & untrimmed it looks messy.

You need color. Plant flowers, and perhaps shrubs and/or flowering trees.

Honestly, at this point, I'm not sure I'd do anything under the deck but get it cleaned out. And keep it clean - do not use the area under a deck as storage.


Good luck.
