    Build a pergola – Offer some protection from the sun without blocking it completely by building a pergola over your deck’s seating area.

  2. Build a slatted ceiling – Instead of building a pergola, build a slatted ceiling that is supported by a pair of trees flanking your deck.
  3. Build a lattice – Add a bit of privacy to your deck without blocking the sunlight or the breeze by constructing a lattice.
  4. Build a bench border – If your deck doesn’t need a railing, build a bench that borders the deck instead to act as a railing as well as to provide seating.
  5. Add a built-in banquet – A built-in banquet can provide additional setting as well as hidden storage space.
