What’s the best material to use when building steps for outside?
While there are a multitude of materials and designs you can use, one of the first things you should do is look at the existing outside paths and decks and build steps that will complement these surfaces.
That’s exactly the approach used by our team at Ferntree Gully in Victoria. Their steps were to lead from a new merbau deck, also built by the team. So they and the homeowners decided to use merbau decking in the steps and the result is nothing short of spectacular!
The deck, itself, is sizeable and is adjacent to the rear entrance of the house. It’s complemented by a timber and wire balustrade for safety and merbau screen for privacy. The steps start next to the deck and lead down to a beautiful garden area with a strategically placed bench seat – perfect for admiring the new stairway!
The entire project provides a beautiful and welcoming area for the homeowners and visitors and will be source of relaxing and entertainment for many years to come.
