One of the most beautiful types of wood in the world is hardwood and there is no place that it is more pleasing on the eye than when used for your garden decking boards.

If your current timber decking has cracks and is otherwise in disrepair or you are thinking of building a deck then it is time to consider hardwood decking that will last for years and retain its beauty.

Compared to [easyazon_link keywords=”hardwood decking” locale=”US” tag=”thedigitalwor-20″]hardwood decking[/easyazon_link] soft timber decks can look like the poor relation or just plain ol’ cheap decking.

Many timber decking areas built prior to 2004 and were made of soft timber and in some cases treated with chromate copper arsenate, even though seal finishing was applied these decks did not retain their original beauty.

The best wood to use on any garden decking is hardwood.

There are hundreds of different kinds, coming from all over the world. For example, Australian Red Cedar, African Zebrawood, European Beech, Australian and Tasmania Blackwood, India’s Andaman Marble-wood, and, of course, Ironwood from Australia and walnut from Brazil and Ipe and Philippine Mahogany.

Of course, many hardwood trees grow right here in the United States, including teak and mahogany.

When choosing the kind of timber hardwood decking that will best fit in with the home or business architecture, you will find many to choose from.

Always try to select something that will add more attraction to the area as well as have the hardness which will eliminate replacing for many, many years.

Hardwood offers a variety of patterns in each piece, including density, growth pattern, grain, pore size, and so forth. This provides the opportunity to have a hardwood deck that is truly beautiful in colour, design and construction.

    Thanks for the tip about picking a hardwood timber decking that will add more attraction to the area you’re installing it and also check the hardness level so that you can eliminate replacing for many years. My husband has been wanting to add a deck to our backyard so we can have family BBQs so I decided to look into it. I’ll have to tell him we have to match the timber to our house so it matches it but also adds appeal and then check what the hardness level of the wood is.
