Occupy your deck to the fullest extent with the right accessories for the spring season. After a cold winter season, everyone is ready to be outside and soaking up the sunshine. Spring deck entertaining is a great way to kick off the outdoor entertaining season and fully enjoy all your deck offers.

Successful outdoor entertaining requires some basic furnishings and comforts to help accommodate guests that visit your deck. A folding table and camp chairs could do the job. Or you can create an outdoor oasis that will benefit you during each season. As your trusted deck experts at Wahoo Decks, we are happy to use our years of experience to help you achieve top deck status.

Here are our picks for 4 essential spring decking accessories:

1. Deck Furniture

Deck furniture is available in a wide range of materials, colors, and styles. Purchasing high quality items can be done at multiple price points. Choose furniture that fits your needs on your deck while also fulfilling the vision you have for your deck. With deck furniture your main focus should be quality and comfort.

3. Planters

Use the fresh spring weather to care for plants and flowers around your deck. While a spring and summer accessory, planters add a touch of greenery or color to decks that make entertaining that much more fun. Whether you’re planting primarily ornamental plants and flowers or using a small garden box to grow your own veggies, planters add interest to any deck space.

If you’re using a planter on your aluminum decking, it is important to use something elevated to resist staining the powder coated finish on your aluminum deck boards- and always avoid anything with metal legs, as those can cause your aluminum decking to rust.

2. Deck Boxes

When shopping for deck accessories, a deck box should be at the top of your list. Deck boxes allow for storage of other accessories, while completing your cohesive deck décor. Many full deck furniture sets offer a coordinating deck box as well. Locating a matching deck box is a task easily completed.

4. Add A Fire Pit

With the chill of winter lingering after the sun sets, a fire pit helps to give parties just the right amount of warmth to keep going. The choice is yours be it a gas fire pit that allows you to control the flame or a traditional wood burning fire pit. Fire pits are available in many different sizes and styles.

Fire pits also work great on our aluminum decking. Learn more about our fire-rating and choosing the right fire pit for your deck space here.

If you decide to use a firepit on your aluminum deck, it is important to use something between metal bottoms or legs and your deck surface. Metal-on-metal contact with your deck can cause the powder-coated surface of your deck to scratch and cause your deck to rust.

The Montego Gas Fire Pit Table from www.woodlanddirect.com is a great option for most deck spaces.
