The common height for a deck is 3 to 4 feet from the surface to the ground. Some decks are lower and some much higher. So what do you do with the area under your deck? You can always close off the underside with lattice or other types of deck skirting, but why not use the space?
We can all use extra storage space right? Turn the space below your deck into a closed storage area by using lattice deck skirting with a lattice door. This space then becomes a great place for additional storage for lawn chairs, yard tools, etc. If you do not have a roof over your deck remember, the openings between the deck boards will still allow rain to drip beneath the deck. But don’t let this stop you from utilizing the space.
