deck addition - how low to ground?
I have an area of approx. 10' x 15' wide to connect my existing deck to a house addition with porch.
My question (barring any local codes which I will check into) how low can I go with deck? I will use pressure treated wood for continuity. Ground slopes so that a patio would require fill-in dirt.
Will ground level or up to say 8" above ground level create any problems? What would be best ground preparation for this?
