Everyone needs a little privacy. If you live close to your neighbors or next to a busy road, you can understand the value of privacy while you’re outside on your deck. Those prying eyes of neighbors and passersby can be too much and can take away from enjoying time with your family. But what can you do? We here at Miles Bradley can think of a suggestion!
It’s amazing what a privacy wall can do to help you feel a little relief. It’s a simple thing that can give you the retreat that you and your family need to enjoy the outdoors. Also, it’s especially nice if you have an outdoor pool or hot tub on your deck and don’t want your neighbors’ eyes on you and your family
Building deck walls for privacy can do more than just give you a feeling of sanctuary in your own neighborhood, but also act as a way to stay safe from the elements.

With a privacy wall, you can get out in your hot tub in the winter without the wind and snow making it unbearable.
Not only do privacy walls on your deck give you these benefits, but they also add a visual element to your deck. We can help you design the privacy wall of your dreams. We can give you options for your wall that can take your deck from drab to fab.
If you’ve been wanting to build a privacy wall for you and your family, we here at Miles Bradley can help!

Make Your Deck Look Amazing!
We’ve got some ideas from Pintrest, magazines, and even some clients we’ve had in the past to put together a list of cool ways you can spruce your deck up!
Of course the best way to get your deck to look and feel great is to add places to lounge and host guests on. Chairs, tables, patio furniture, a grill, and other places to hang out are key to enjoying your deck. Once you have these items in place, you can fully enjoy your deck and the summer weather. Make sure when purchasing outdoor furniture that you are getting items that can withstand the elements and are specifically made to be outdoors.
Adding potted plants to your deck will help create a real sense of awe. Plants will do well out on your outdoor space, and give your deck some of the life that it needs. You’d be surprised what a few potted plants and flowers can do for the feel of a space. Trust us you can’t go wrong.
One of the things that no deck or outdoor space should be without is a place to have a fire. There isn’t much more relaxing than enjoying company outside with a good fire going. Little fire pits or chimineas will help keep your fire contained and manageable. Always make sure to check local ordinances for fire burning policies or make sure to alert your local fire department any time you want to have a fire. Safety first!
When planning your deck, what is your ideal situation? We’ve had clients in the past who wanted to make sure they could add additional features to their deck in the future if need be. Hot tubs, pergolas, and gazebos could be in your future if you want it, so make sure you think in the long term when building your ideal deck. (If you need a hot tub or other water add ons we recommend checking out Viscount pool and Spa)
This one is great for when you want to extend your time out on your deck until late hours of the night. Don’t leave your guests sitting in the dark, especially if you have a multi level deck or stairs. Adding some lighting will not only help set the mood, but also give added safety features that you’ll need to enjoy your deck into the evening
