deck by sol republic and motorola. the deck was originally overpriced -- $200 usd, £150, or au$236 -- but it's now available for as low as $40 online, making it a pretty nice deal in the us at least.
if you like clean lines and minimal detail, then decking is great for this. minimal detail can, of course, be achieved with one size of paving but because the individual paving slabs are much shorter than deck boards, paving will always look slightly ‘fussier’ than decking.
2. decking and paving pros and cons. decking is an easier structure to build in general, which means construction will be a much faster process. it has a natural façade and can be installed on sloping or non-uniform terrains. when choosing between decking or paving, consider that decking materials tend to be more affordable than paving materials.
if you want something more than basic concrete, consider stamping, staining or coloring it to create a fantastic look. pros of poured concrete patios: here’s what concrete offers. the price of concrete is significantly less than composite decking and cheaper than paver bricks or stones too, both for material and installation
i have a raised deck as it would have cost too much to do the foundations for stone . it's been there for about 7 years now . it is a pain with maintenance and we've cable tied some rubber matting stuff together to walk over in the winter. but if we didn't have it we'd be left with subsiding concrete steps and no usable space so i don't regret it.
oh thought that decking part of the garden and having the rest to lawn would be cheaper than a patio and lawn. we had two quotes both for over £2000 for a small decked area and larger grassed area. i think the garden is approx 20' x 30'. would it be cheaper to have the paved patio rather than the decking? also which would be easier to maintain?
