Outdoor Wednesday 5/13

It is time for another Outdoor Wednesday Hosted by Susan at A Southern Daydreamer .

I am featuring some of my hubby's work on our deck that he renewed by replacing the old deck with the new products out there similar to treks. This product is very nice and looks very similar to cedar wood. It is called Fiberon and will never crack, split, fade, or rot away. You just have to wash it every once in a while to keep it looking new. This photo show the railing that we chose that is a wood and iron look. In case your interested the color is mahogany.
This photo show the railing that we chose that is a wood and iron look. Also my little sitting area right outside the kitchen slider.
Here is another sitting area a step down from the main deck. He also made a pergola a few years back that is above this, shown in the picture below.This picture is from the yard looking back at the house. You can get a better idea of the pergola and the deck and railing. There are no screws that show. It is fasten on the sides, so it give the appearance of outdoor hardwood flooring!
This is also a picture of my mother's day present. A Beautiful hanging basket of flowers.
He just recently finished the steps to the patio. He used the same products but then added a garden area that steps down with Moss rocks to hold the dirt in.

He had to add lattice to the bottom of the deck to keep critters away and have a finished look.
In this area before we had creeping jasmine that would smell beautiful but was very messy. We replaced it with 12 x12 stone and is the same material that our patio is made of. I purchased this hose keeper from Lowe's yesterday for $35.00, not bad I and it looks very neat and clean.

I hope you enjoy are new deck, we sure are!. The product is very nice and really does look like real wood. The treks product did not look as nice as this one. Thanks for stopping by today don't forget to check out A Southern Daydreamer for more great outdoor ideas. Have a wonderful day and stop by again soon!
