When Curtis and Ann Crays of Archadeck of Front Range Colorado designed this redwood deck in Wheat Ridge, they had a couple architectural challenges while working with the existing landscaping. The customer had an existing deck that they wanted removed and replaced with a new deck. They wanted the new deck to have privacy walls on both sides and they wanted to build over the rock landscaping to integrate the natural features of the rock and trees into the design of a new deck.
The old deck had been built by the owners and updated over time to afford them the privacy they desired.
The existing deck also had a very small staircase which Curtis and Ann wanted to creatively expand to make access to the deck easier for the homeowners.
Creating the substructure and support required pouring concrete over some of the rocks to create a secure and solid footing for their new deck.
The quality of work and materials used also exceeded expectations. – homeowner

One of the unique features of the rock landscaping was the way the existing trees were integrated into that landscaping integrating nature and living space. You can see from this picture that by keeping the existing trees, they added to the uniqueness of the structure while providing wonderful shading for the deck.
As you can see from the pictures above and below, their deck had all the finished details including lattice from the stone up to the deck and even putting electrical outlets on the deck to maximize the homeowners’ enjoyment of their new outdoor living space.
