It’s finally warming up in Ottawa. Although the winter wasn’t too harsh this time around, I’m sure we can all agree that we’re in the mood for warmer weather. Along with spring cleaning, comes the responsibility of planning out all of the outdoor projects for the upcoming season. This task can seem daunting at times, especially with a long to do list. Luckily for you, we can offer some information that you’ll find helpful when you get busy with your planning.
Some of the most common backyard projects that require some planning would be if you were considering a fence or deck. Both jobs call for a considerable amount of thought and surely is an investment. Fortunately, if built properly, your investment can be one that you and your family enjoy for years to come.
Purpose of Your Fence
When looking for a fence, the first thing to consider is the purpose of your fence. If it is meant as a perimeter for a pet, young children or to surround a pool; a chain link or an iron fence would do the job. On the other hand, if you are looking for privacy, the best options would be either a wood fence or one made of PVC. Once you’ve narrowed down the purpose of your fence, you can make the task of choosing your material and style less intimidating.
Purpose of Your Deck
The same goes when considering a deck. Will you be using the deck for entertaining guests? Will it be meant for surrounding a pool? These questions among others will dictate the size, shape and even the height of your deck. Once the layout has been decided, it’s time to consider materials. The most common are wooden decks made of pressure treated or western red cedar lumber. These days though, we are seeing more and more homeowners opting for composite decking instead. Not only can composite decks look great, but they're built to last.
