Build composite deck on grass

This article will explain how to build a deck on grass. If you follow the simple steps explained below, you can build your deck on grass or soil.

Step one 

The first step is to get your equipment ready. You can either borrow from a friend or purchase from the market if you don’t have any of the tools. You can use the tools again if you acquire them. The tools required are a pencil, measuring tape, some pegs, a spade, a saw, and a string. 

Step two

Measure the exact spot that your deck will cover to prepare the location. It can be done with the help of the measuring tape. You can put pegs at the sides when you have gotten the length and breadth of the spot. So, You can use a spade to clear the grass after you have marked the sides with pegs. You don’t want to build your deck directly on the ground. You should spray weed control substances on the ground after that. The location should be covered and the frame laid with gravel.

Step three 

The frame that you will put on your deck will be installed on this gravel. If you have already placed gravel on the spot where you will place the deck, installing the boards is easy. You must not place the boards on the ground or gravel. The boards will sink because of the weight of the deck. You should place the boards on a plank of wood or concrete block. 

Step four 

Attaching the boards together will form the frame for the deck. It is recommended that you use treated woods for the boards because they will last a long time. Attach more boards on the inside of the frame so that the structure will be strong after securing the outer boards.. If you want to add the joists inside the frame, you need to make sure they are at a minimum distance of 16 inches.

Step five

The next thing to do after building the frame is arranged the deck on the joists. You should start the task from the side of a house or a wall.. If the deck isn’t joined to the house, you should take it from one end to the next. You can use screws to hold down the deck, or you can use clips and screws. There should be at least 5mm of space between the decks. When there is a change in temperature, this is to accommodate the expansion of the decks.

Step six 

If you want to finish the deck, you should cover the edges with trim boards or paint them in a matching color. You should clean the site after that. Installation of a deck on grass is easy and can be done by a do-it-yourselfer. All you have to do is clear the location, lay the boards on the ground, and put the deck on the frame.
