In case you are thinking of adding a detailed Victorian-inspired look to your deck, then using sawn balusters for your railing is highly recommended. Balusters have a way of adding an instant charm and class into your outdoor space. 

Tip: If you can combine them with lush green foliage the results will be outstanding.

You can also give your existing railing a new fresh look by adding a series of planters on top of it. Green foliage always has a way of bringing life to any outdoor space. You don’t even need to put a lot of planters. But, if you can get climbing plants that can grow along the railing it would be great. 

Remember:

You will also need to prune now and then to ensure the foliage does not overgrow to unmanageable levels.
