Many more are opting for a raised deck over one that is embedded into the ground because they provide a platform that you can walk straight out onto from your bifold/patio doors, which creates a seamless transition that is generally safer, too.

Uneven slope? No problem, NeoTimber’s composite decking can be raised to fit over the uneven ground creating a flat platform for an entertainment space.
