No one wants to settle for less than what they want or deserve. This includes the ideal image of what your anticipated outdoor structure will look like, and also how it will function. This custom designed and built outdoor fireplace and patio surround in Woodstock is a fine specimen of what entails a totally custom solution to your outdoor endeavor.
When these Woodstock homeowners approached us they had been in search of a patio builder that could deliver a quality built outdoor structure that complimented their home and landscape, provided functionality and beauty. Together, with the input of the homeowner, we were able to come up with a magnificent well-rounded design of a custom outdoor fireplace built from superior Belgard stack stone, as well as a custom paver patio surround that flanks the fireplace. The entire structure has custom characteristics, from the unique shape of the fireplace to the custom mantel. The use of the patio surround creates the feel of an “outdoor living room” and invites you to cozy up around the fire in much the same way a comfy, relaxed family room on the interior of the home does.
When you make the decision to use Archadeck of Greater Atlanta to design and construct any facet of their outdoor oasis, you can rest assured the silver lining comes with owning a quality built, well planned, structurally above average, and above all truly custom outdoor living structure.

Dogs by nature are companion animals. Throughout history dogs have been touted as “man’s best friend”. Dogs play a crucial role in our lives, and are considered to be part of the family unit. At Archadeck, we are seeing a trend with our owners asking for customized dog gates for their outdoor living areas such as decks, porches and patios. The dog gate serves a dual purpose for Fido and dog owners.
Dog deck gates can give you and your dog all the benefits of enjoying the outdoors, while having complete control over their surroundings. Let’s say for example your family and the neighbors family are enjoying a day by your backyard pool. The only dilemma is that the dog keeps jumping in the pool. In an effort to appease your guests, and to make everyone happy you opt to enclose your dog inside the house for the afternoon. This means that Fido will miss the exercise, fresh air and camaraderie of being part of the family. With a custom installed dog deck gate, you can opt to keep Fido in the backyard but away from the pool deck area, or keep him in close proximity to the action within the deck. The choice is yours.
Dog gates offer safety, security and the convenience of having the freedom to spend more time with your pampered pooch. Our dog gates can be custom built alongside your deck’s railing system, so they offer functionality as well as aesthetic appeal. Not only do the gates offer a safe haven for your dog to take in the wonder of the great outdoors, many of our gates have become a choice for homeowners with small children as well. The gates can keep your toddler from straying away from the security of the backyard deck while you are busy cooking those hot dogs on the grill. This feature offers homeowners peace of mind, and more family-time for outdoor living enjoyment. It’s a win, win situation.
Archadeck of Greater Atlanta can custom design a dog-friendly deck gate best suited for your needs and individual taste. Contact us today to learn more about our innovative and functional outdoor living designs. (770) 377 – 2900

Earlier this year Archadeck was featured on HGTV’d building a beautiful custom zen-style deck complete with custom benches and other custom design features. This 1,000 square foot deck included a custom fire pit, a custom pergola-style shade structure, custom planters, a children’s play area, a hot tub, and a patio. The deck was built using Fiberon Horizon.

When you think of all the things that make you feel like a true American, you think of things like apple pie, the fourth of July, the image of friends and family gathered around your deck with the all American scents of hot dogs and hamburgers wafting from the grill. Would that image be as potent or those patriotic feelings as strong without the ultimate American backyard structure in the starring role? There is no structure that exhibits the American lifestyle better than the backyard deck.
These Marietta, GA homeowners wanted a re-vamped deck to enhance their already beautiful backyard. They knew they wanted to re-deck (or re-do everything but the sub-structure) their existing deck with a material that was low maintenance, versatile and would stand the test of time. But they still wanted the look of real wood. With so many composite and PVC decking choices on the market, we showed the homeowner a sample of Trex Transcends. This particular composite was not the look they were after. After careful consideration the homeowners decided to go with Gossen – a national PVC decking board which is the only one on the market that carries a lifetime warranty. Gossen’s line of high quality PVC decking suited their tastes best because the homeowner really liked the colors and the fact that Gossen looked authentic.
Going into the initial project Archadeck of Greater Atlanta carefully inspected the existing deck to make certain it was structurally sound enough to re-deck. When considering re-decking, especially when using composites, the condition of the joists is very important because composites are thinner than wood. Standard joist width is usually between 16″ and 23″. In order to re-deck with composites, the joists need to be adjusted to 12″. With this particular deck, we had to assist in bringing the joists up to par. The homeowners also had an existing dry under-deck system that we had to be very careful of while installing the new deck.
The completed re-decking measures a beautiful 500 square feet. The railings used compliment the rich colors of the PVC harmoniously. Archadeck of Greater Atlanta also finished out the stone patio which lies under the deck and is adjacent to these Marietta, GA homeowners’ wonderful koi pond. The finished patio creates a place of solace, beauty and solitude with the sound of the water from the koi pond close by.
These Marietta, GA homeowners love their new deck, and continue to love it more every day. I guess you can say they now have a deck that makes them fall in love over and over again. If you are ready to fall in love with your deck again contact Archadeck of Greater Atlanta to discuss re-decking your existing deck, or a new deck. (770) 377 – 2900

It’s not often that we encounter homeowners with such a passion for gardening and beautifying their landscape as these Dunwoody homeowners. They are completely passionate about gardening, landscaping and all the treasures of the beauty found in nature. When you enjoy gardening to this degree, the ultimate enjoyment does not come from sitting on the sidelines and “watching” their garden grow.The ultimate enjoyment is in creating a space that allows them to be at one with nature and their back yard.
When they originally came to us they were looking for a way to integrate their gardens and landscape into their lives as much as possible. So, we set our sights on designing an outdoor living area that would enable them to become one with nature, a place where they could witness every new bloom, all the sights, textures and aromas of nature up close and personal. In essence these homeowners wanted to work together with us to give them an outdoor structure that offered a front row seat to their yard.
The couple’s home is a beautiful older ranch style bungalow. Their existing deck was old and weary and really wasn’t conducive to integrating the landscape and garden in the way they wished. Our goal was to create an outdoor space that would include both shaded and non-shaded space to interact with the landscape around it. The ideal was to dovetail the structure into their existing landscape to make the yard more accessible and to complement the beauty the yard held within it.
Archadeck of Greater Atlanta was able to design a deck and screened porch combination structure that would provide both the shaded and non-shaded areas the homeowners desired. We were also able to carry elements of the garden itself onto the deck by adding a large corner pergola and trellis. This grand design also includes a paver patio, and paver pathway that leads up a custom fire pit with a seating wall surround. The combination of all the structures and the gorgeous landscape flows and harmonizes together perfectly.
We also drew off another element of the landscape by building the new deck around a tree which added a natural look to the deck. Part of the deck is a screened porch, which sits in the middle, with the remaining deck creating a grand entrance into the yard. We constructed the deck out of 2×6 pressure treated wood, with standard pressure treated rails used along with metal balusters. The hardscapes which surround the screened porch and deck are all constructed in elegant venetian pavestone.
The end project left these avid gardeners breathless, and in fact they are so pleased that they are looking forward to having us design an area for the front of their home as well. We were able to convey the homeowners’ passion through the structures and create usable space to enjoy their favorite pastime. The project is a masterpiece of design, textures and beauty all wrapped into one.
If you are looking for a way to incorporate your garden and landscape into the every day functionality of an outdoor structure, or a design that entails multiple structures for multiple areas to enjoy nature, contact Archadeck of Greater Atlanta to make it happen. (770) 377 – 2900

Archadeck of Greater Atlanta creates a stunning backyard for these Roswell, GA homeowners with multiple outdoor rooms that work as one
Part of the joy of creating unforgettable outdoor spaces for homeowners is not only in the joy of building the structure but in being able to provide the homeowners and their family a space to create lasting memories. We are currently building multiple new decks and a paver patio for these homeowners in Roswell, GA. When we initially met with them they conveyed to us that they have 2 young children and they really wanted to be able to spend special “quality time” outside with them. Their current backyard was not conducive to spend time with the children in because the existing deck was too small and was the wrong size. The decks dimensions weren’t able to deliver the lifestyle and function that they needed for their family. The deck was really non-usable, for even the dining table they had dominated the small misshapen space. After meeting with the clients we came up with a design that aimed to change all that, and will soon be a place to create cherished memories and watch their children flourish with the opportunity to spend more time outdoors.
Since the goal is to provide these Roswell, GA homeowners with a larger more functional deck space and extend the area beyond the deck to a finished paver patio, we are using a mixture of stone and pavers on the downstairs and creating a storage space underneath one of the decks. To create even more usable space we are also finishing out the underneath of the other deck to create a living space that will interact with the patio which is on the main level. All these spaces fit together like a puzzle to create a large space, by way of multiple spaces that interact with the back yard. Once completed, the backyard will become an oasis for fun and family time.
The home has a daylight basement, and the homeowners want to be able to walk out from the basement and have a ready, usable space at their fingertips. This entire design flows effortlessly so that one structure plays from another. The homeowners will have a dining area on the upper level deck, an outdoor kitchen underneath the deck and a higher end deck that will be located above the main access door to the daylight basement which will have lights in the ceiling, fans, as well as a kitchenette counter top area with a paver bottom. The lower deck has storage that looks like part of the backyard that will house lawn equipment and has an access door. The homeowner did not want a garage door, but did want the space to have garage functionality.
The decks are being constructed with kiln dried wood that has been paraffin enhanced to promote longevity as well as beauty. They are to be supported with stackstone columns, which will add elegance and style to the structures. The patio is being finished with a combination of beautiful Belgard hardscapes, which will include their stunning Dublin line of cobblestone.
We are very excited about the anticipated completion of this backyard transformation in Roswell, GA. Rest assured we will follow-up as soon as the job is completed. Archadeck of Greater Atlanta looks forward to the smiles and memories this backyard is sure to hold for these homeowners. Creating a better lifestyle for our customers is what it is all about.
