There are no hard and fast rules as to which wood is best for decking. Softwoods such as pressure treated Southern Yellow Pine or cedar are extremely durable , however, The Designer Decking Company tend to steer well clear of some of the cheaper softwoods which really can't stand up to the test of time.

Softwoods have a completely different aesthetic character to the hardwoods and it really comes down to personal choice and of course cost.

Ipe (pronounced eepay) is the hardwood we tend to use the most and it features in over 90% of our projects.

It's durability and beauty is legendry.
