A backyard deck can also be as curved as a free-form swimming pool, with built-in furniture softened by pillows covered in colorful outdoor fabric. One part of the wall is solid, while the other part is made of a metal net fence that follows the curve of the deck.

A deck doesn't have to be very large. It can even be a few deep and wide steps on which to show off potted plants.
