Outdoor entertaining area makeover

Composite decking, synthetic turf and privacy screens provided the right mix to incorporate a new spa into an outdoor entertaining area.




The privacy screen and gate took about five days total work and all up, took countless trips to Bunnings.




Before and after





Kind of a Big Deal

Good Afternoon @Benjie91 

You have certainly lifted an area into a much nicer looking place! I like how you have pattenered the composite boards.  I would not have thought of doing it lol This is one reason I like this page so much!

How did you put in the posts for the shade sail? I always struggle in my mind "do the posts go in at an angle? How deep? what if they are pulled together becaus eof the shade sail?" All these questions cascade through my mind, I liek the idea but I hesitate always.  It definently adds to your setup tho. 



Just Starting Out

Is that in Queensland because I'm not sure it would pass inspection for Pool Safety. We had our similar spa inspected and were told that it wasn't legal height, needed a pool fence all around it and were not allowed to have direct access from our house even through lockable sliding doors and screens!!! Bl888y ridiculous. Also, anything that is climeable for kids can't be in the same area...

Looks great though!!!
