Decking is a flat surface capable of supporting weight and is generally constructed outdoors as a part of garden landscaping, connected to a building, that adds a new aesthetic dimension to the house. Decking helps in transforming a plain-looking backyard into an entertaining area for family or friends to enjoy or relax. Wooden decks have become popular and stimulate enthusiasm for outdoor living and add spaciousness to a house. Wooden decking is being used in a number of homes for building patios, landscaping for gardens, or for extended the living area owing to its ease of design versatility and adaptability to varied purposes.
