Start by drawing your yard and the back wall of your house, including the location of the doors and windows. Include any obstructions that might affect the deck, like trees or septic tanks. Then let your imagination go. Think of how you'll use the deck, and what types of things you'll want to put on it. Will you cook on it? Eat on it? Entertain? Have a lot of furniture? What shape would you like? What levels and areas would you like?

Think about the deck both today and into the future. You may only have a budget to do part of the deck right now. If so, consider planning a main deck now, and designing one or more additional decks that can be added onto it later, perhaps at different levels, to complete the perfect outdoor retreat.
