The Best Ground Level Deck Builder
Upgrade Your Backyard Living Space With A Custom Design Ground Level Deck or Patio
A Ground Level or Grade-level Deck is considered anything that is 3 feet above the ground or less. It is a good alternative to decorative stamped concrete and a grade level application, although grade level decks are more of an investment.
Design An Amazing Ground Level or Grade Level Deck or Patio Using Composite Decking, Wood or Concrete
Ground level deck framing is a type of deck construction that does not require any posts or support beams to be installed beneath the deck surface. Instead, the deck is constructed directly on the ground, using concrete blocks or pressure-treated wood. This method of deck construction is especially popular for small, low-level decks, as it is relatively inexpensive and can be easily customized. Ground level decks can be made from a variety of materials, including wood, plastic, and composite decking, and are typically finished with a waterproof sealant to protect the deck from the elements. With proper construction and maintenance, a ground level deck can provide many years of enjoyment for homeowners.

One of the things that we always recommend when installing a grade level deck, is that we maintain some form of airflow underneath, typically when the deck is close to the ground homeowners are tempted to want to have it skirted all the way to the ground and to completely block it off. Traditionally they want to do this to keep critters out from underneath their deck, but we have found that the more difficult you make it for a critter to get underneath your deck, the more comfortable that critter feels to set up a nest for reproduction. So if it's difficult for a rabbit to get underneath the deck, once that rabbit gets underneath that deck, they feel a lot more safe because it's not as easy for their natural predators to get to them, like foxes.
Can I build a deck directly on the Ground?
If you're looking to build a deck, you can opt to build it directly on the ground. This is a great option if you don't want the deck to be very high, as decks of certain heights may not need stairs or guardrails.
An important aspect of Grade Level or Ground Level Decks, that is important to be aware of, is that any deck under 28 inches does not require a rail. Although we do recommend that you install rails in most deck environments because when you do not have a rail, you don't feel comfortable with your furniture within a few feet from the edge of the deck. So let's say your deck is 18 in off the ground and it goes out 12 ft and you have a chair and table and you have someone sitting there relaxing after a meal. Without a guardrail, they're not going to feel super comfortable sliding their chair back to cross their legs, so that's something that you always want to keep in mind.
Are ground level decks cheaper?
The cost-effectiveness of constructing at-grade decks is often a major factor for homeowners when deciding to embark on a deck-building project. Since at-grade decks don't always require the use of piers and railings, they can be more cost-efficient compared to elevated decks. It is important to determine if your deck design will require handrails.
Stairs are an important consideration for ground level decks because the code is very specific on what’s required for stairs as you get closer to the ground, so anytime you have two stairs and then the deck or the landing, you do not have to have handrails on those stairs. But anytime you have more than two stairs and then the landing, the code does require that you have rails as well as a graspable handrail.
What do you put under ground level deck?
Using a layer of crushed gravel, with or without a plastic or weed barrier cloth, is the optimal solution for use beneath a deck. This choice is advantageous as it sheds moisture, instead of absorbing it, thus keeping the area under the deck dry and preventing decay.
A grade-level or ground level deck is a great addition to any outdoor space in Arvada, Broomfield, Westminster, Littleton, or any Denver Metro Areas. It provides a great platform for outdoor activities, such as lounging, grilling, and dining. Grade-level decks are low to the ground, making them a great option for those who may not have a high deck or want to avoid the hassle of many steps. Additionally, grade-level decks are easier to maintain than a raised deck due to their low height. They are also more affordable and can be completed quickly, making them an ideal choice for those looking for an outdoor addition on a budget.
