The plain concrete patio was not big enough and we wanted to create a much nicer space to enjoy the back yard. The deck we came up with was just the answer. It features a continuous bench all the way around with lighting under. Very nice fit! The plain concrete patio was not big enough and we wanted to create a much nicer space to enjoy the back yard.
