Wood Deck With Fountain
A privacy screen shuts out surrounding views, while a burbling fountain covers outside noise with a natural sound. Other options for cancelling nearby noise include wind chimes, outdoor speakers (play nature soundtracks) or even a tabletop water garden. For a deck retreat, define different rooms in your retreat by incorporating elevation changes in your deck design. Plantings in this retreat include Bonfire begonia and Festival cordyline.
