Another before and after of our deck.
Again, it was powerwashed and stained and a support post was added. What I didn't show before was the nastiness that was in front of it. What you can't quite make out in the pictures is that in the before picture the ground level is twice as high as it is now in the landscaping. So that was taken down then we replaced the nasty rotting wood with landscaping stones and added new mulch. We plan to put pavers on the left side to set the grill on. This is all just a temporary fix. We are hoping next summer to extend the deck out further from the house, so we didn't want to sink too much money into this in the meantime.
