When it comes to choosing a material for your new deck there are several choices, namely hardwood, softwood and a composite material often referred to as modwood. Which material you choose for your deck often comes down to personal preference, but when it comes to looks its hard to go past hardwood.
Hardwood decking timbers include the commonly used merbau, which is sourced from South East Asia, and Australian eucalyptus timbers such as blackbutt, jarrah and spotted gum. They all feature beautiful rich colours, are durable and tough, and have spectacular knots and other variations.
While the choice of material for your new deck mightn’t be hard (actually, it isn’t easy as softwood and modwood are also great products) deciding where to put your deck can be difficult. While generally decks are positioned against homes, building a detached deck also has merits. Take a look at this stunning deck built by Outside Concepts at Hornsby, NSW. It was cleverly built into the garden – a difficult job but one worth the effort when you see the final result.
