Difference Between a Platform and Raised Deck
A platform deck also known as a ground level deck is a structure where it is “floating” off the ground. These decks are freestanding which means that they are not attached/secured to any other structure. These decks are not as complicated to set up because they do not require foundation posts to be installed. Typically you can either build the deck and have it lay directly on the ground (not recommended), on a gravel base, or be supported by concrete blocks.
Raised decks are designed for houses that are built a couple feet or more above grade. Building one of these decks will be secured to the house and also have foundations and posts. Another feature of this type of deck is that they have railings for safety and a small set of stairs. Given the height of the deck, the foundation posts and under section of the deck can be concealed with lattice or wood panelling.
