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.

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
