Prevention is better than cure when it comes to preparing your garden decking for the change in seasons.
Repairing or replacing damaged decking and broken sections can be a big and costly job, so if you can prepare and preserve your panels, you’ll be well on your way to looking after your wood for winter.
Using the right cleaning and preserving products is vital for removing mould and fungi from your decking. Cleaning, sealing and protecting are also really important. You can buy what you need online or from your local DIY store.
Before the wet weather sets in, it’s a good idea to recolour or stain your decking which will keep it looking better for longer, and when spring comes round your garden should look as good as new.
