Description
A large wooden deck with seating and interspersed planted beds, trees and shrubs is located in front of the house.

Users comments
The wooden deck makes the garden feel like a continuation of the house; it is barrier-free. The user is extremely satisfied with it.
Landscape architect Ulf Nordfjäll, who helped install the garden, suggested building a large wooden deck instead of a small veranda.
Another advantage of the wooden deck is that less dirt is dragged into the house.
