Composite Decking With Pathway and Steps

Here we have a great example of creating a new space in a garden. Come thru the glass patio doors in the back garden, from the carpet to a solid and clean deck. Take a seat and take in the morning sun with the paper and coffee. For this install we went with composite material. A high end option but one that completely removes decking concerns. Easy clean, less slippery and rot proof.

We started with a strong frame made of Douglas Fir. It’s an extremely tough wood that, while scientifically known as a softwood, is actually harder than some hardwoods. Concrete deck posts should ensure a build that lasts for many years. Clips were used that employ a special hidden system. It’s good feature that tidies up the look of the install while providing a nice feel for even barefoot users of the decking.

This type of decking is so strong that it takes a little longer than others to install. But, good things come to those that wait. And this is a product that no-one will regret owning.

What is Composite Decking?

Composite steps and decking is a synthetic decking material made from a combination of plastic and wood fiber. It is designed to mimic the look and feel of natural wood decking while offering a number of benefits over traditional wood decking, including:


Composite decking is highly resistant to weathering, rotting, and insect damage, making it a long-lasting choice for outdoor use.

Low maintenance

Unlike traditional wood decking, composite decking does not require staining, sealing, or painting. It can be cleaned easily with soap and water.


A protective shell that is applied to the surface of the composite decking. This means composite decking is resistant to fading, staining, and scratches.

Environmentally friendly

Many composite decking products are made from recycled materials, making them a sustainable choice for eco-conscious homeowners.


Composite steps and decking are available in a range of colors and styles, making it easy to customize the look of your outdoor space.

Slip resistance

Composite decking is designed to be slip-resistant, making it a safe choice for outdoor spaces.

From the perspective of an owner of composite decking:

As an owner of composite decking, I have to say that it's one of the best things I've ever invested in for my outdoor space.

Not only does it look great and add a touch of sophistication to my garden, but it's also super durable and requires very little maintenance. I don't have to worry about staining or sealing it like I would with traditional wood decking, which saves me time and money in the long run. Plus, it's slip-resistant, so I don't have to worry about my family or guests slipping and falling when we're outside. I also love the fact that it's environmentally friendly, made from recycled materials.

Overall, I'm really happy with my decision to install composite steps and decking and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to improve their outdoor space.
