Multi-level deck design

Above is a photo of a multi-level wood deck custom designed & built by Archadeck of Charlotte in Fort Mill, NC. When designing your deck you can choose to integrate multiple outdoor living spaces into one integrated structure. This Fort Mill deck design features a multi-level step that creates multiple different living areas. The upper level dedicates space to lounging and relaxing and the lower level serves as a place to dine and entertain.

Decking pattern

Archadeck of Charlotte can install decking on a diagonal to achieve a few key benefits. Not only does a diagonal decking pattern provide visual appeal but it increases the integrity of the structure and it helps to differentiate your spaces. With a multi-level deck like the one above, you are able to clearly see when you are moving from one level to another.


A common question when designing outdoor spaces is “how can I create privacy?” One way Archadeck of Charlotte creates privacy for homeowners is by adding a privacy fence or wall. This Fort Mill deck design features a wood lattice privacy wall on the 2nd level of the deck allowing you to enjoy your backyard living space with the benefit of privacy from close neighbors. Creating a custom privacy wall gives you and your family peace of mind knowing you can enjoy your time outside in private.

Low-to-grade deck

Deck height plays a huge part in how you can enjoy your outdoor space. This Fort Mill deck design features a low-to-grade deck which gives you ease of movement throughout your yard. You are able to eliminate railing to open up your view which also helps to integrate your outdoor living spaces with your existing yard making for a more cohesive space.

Built-in Benches

When you are building a low-to-grade deck the code may allow the omission of railing (depending on the deck height and city code). In this case, the lower level of this Fort Mill deck was designed without a railing. There are built-in benches that have a natural barrier or “railing” effect and they dramatically increase the seating capacity of this deck. Another added benefit of built-in seating is that you can eliminate some of your outdoor furniture budget! You can also think of your built-in benches as a shelf, you are able to set down any cooking utensils or beverages which makes your life easier when grilling and entertaining.


Pergolas are generally thought of as shade structures but they actually play a big role in designing the aesthetic of your deck. This custom 3-section pergola design in Fort Mill adds visual appeal and height to this outdoor living space. Pergolas provide the opportunity to truly customize your deck with lights, plants, and other season decorative elements!

Stone-encased pillars

When adding the outdoor living space of your dreams you have made the right choice with a custom design & build company! This Fort Mill deck design is anything but boring. The custom pergola is supported by 3 custom stone-encased pillars that add dimension and texture to this already gorgeous outdoor space. Take advantage of adding small custom details that beautify your deck design and provide that custom aesthetic for all to admire.
