I have a deck that is high up off ground, like 3-4 feet (somewhere in
between). I am going to put that latticework to cover underneath the deck.
I got it at home depot.
How can I utilize that space underneath the deck for storage. Maybe some
patio furniture or kids toys etc. Do they sell something that is wide and
deep that is made for underneath the deck? That would be great.
Please let me know
If the deck is wood, you need all the air circulation you can get
underneath, to slow the rotting process in the joists and deck boards. For
that reason, I would neither block the front with lattice, nor store stuff
If you are in an area with freezing weather be careful that whatever you
put in there has clearance between the deck and ground. Water expands 17%
(with great force) when it freezes, so depending upon ground moisture and
drainage, the ground may heave up in winter. We found that out when a
canoe was wedged under a deck until the ground thawed in springtime. So
do not fill the underdeck space too completely or you may find something
Frost heaving is why any post or foundation should extend below the frost
line if you want it to remain straight and in place.
