Notice how the branching balusters in the California deck railing echo the shapes of the pine trees beyond. These complementing forms ease the transition from the outdoor living space to the landscape seamlessly and… beautifully! In fact, the Mountain Laurel railing becomes part of the landscape.

The homeowners further customize their deck by selecting chunky, yellow pine posts to support each railing section. The wood grain features natural whorls or knots that enhance the overall rustic look of the outdoor space.

As a design note, we like the way meandering branch balusters contrast with the linear floor boards. The variation in form adds a visual twist to the California deck railing.

Installing Mountain Laurel Handrails is easy!

Basic carpentry tools and skills are required, however. Here you can see that the carpenters have out the most important tool: the jobsite work radio. The radio is the first thing to come out of the truck with all the power cords and electrical boxes, and the last thing to get put away in the evening. But seriously, the carpenters are using a level to make sure that the railings are level as they are installed between the posts. A circular saw is needed for cutting the ends of the sections as well as additional lumber and boards that are required to complete the project. An air compressor and nail gun make installing certain boards quick and efficient. Mountain Laurel Handrail sections need to be screwed into the posts to get a strong connection and attachment point.
