This photo-rich book is the tool every DIYer and homeowner needs to plan and design a beautiful custom deck.

If you're looking to build a new deck or remodel the one you have, you want to start by spreading some innovative deck designs in front of you. Look no further than Deck Ideas You Can Use. The updated and expanded edition of this book is the deck design tool you've been searching for--packed with useful information and full-color photos to help you determine the deck of your dreams.

From choosing deck building materials to settling on railings to adding a splash of color with flower-packed planters to complementing the architecture of your house, this book covers every aspect of the design process to help you create a custom deck that's perfect for your home and yard.
