Before digging, make sure that you know where all underground utilities are identified. To find out, you can order a "utility locate," by calling 811.
Now, firm up the subsoils using a compactor with least compressive force of 3200 pounds and begin adding 6-7 inches of crushed stone on top. Add thickness of 2-3 inches at a time until within 3 inches of the string line.
I think patios are a better choice than decks. Patios last longer, require less maintenance, and allow greater design options than decks. Concrete is the most common material used for patios. Probably because it's relatively inexpensive, and builders use it extensively (because they won't be living in the house themselves).
