Wood Decks are an excellent way to keep a natural look and feel about your property.  Most decks today are built out of wood because it’s affordable and easy for your builder to work with.

The most affordable and commonly used type of wood for decking would be pressure treated decking materials.  However, wood can also be quite expensive if you’re wanting to build your deck out of popular redwood, cedar or the even more expensive Ipe.  Natural decking materials however offer a certain richness, and feel that you can only get from using wood.

Materials We Use For Building Custom Decks

  • Pressure Treated Wood Decking
  • Western Red Cedar Decking
  • Ipe Decking
  • Kayu Decking

What’s The Difference In Decking Materials?

Pressure Treated Decking:  It’s very resistant to rot and insects and it also withstands moisture very well, not to mention it’s readily available which also makes it affordable.  Pressure treated wood doesn’t necessarily need to be painted if you like the dark brown, or dark green color variations that it comes in.  Most pressure treated decking material is milled from southern yellow pine.  Square Leaf Landscaping And Design can build you a deck out of pressure treated lumber throughout the Ontario area.

Redwood & Cedar Decking: If budget isn’t an issue and you want one of the more elegant looking materials for your deck then redwood or red cedar are great choices. Both of  these western softwoods are highly sought after for their deep rich colors and natural beauty. Both of these species actually contain tannins and oils that help them naturally resist rot, decay and wood boring insects without having to be treated with chemicals.  The crew at Square Leaf Landscaping And Design are the Ontario Cedar Decking experts!

Ipe Decking:  Also known as Brazilian Walnut or Ironwood Ipe pronounced (Ee-pee) is beautiful looking exotic wood from South America. Ipe is naturally very resistant to rot, abrasion & weather which makes it a good canditate for a deck in our Ontario climate.  Ipe’s great looks and performance don’t come without cost however as it’s more expensive than Cedar.  Ipe is definitely not a budget deck material but we work with it enough that Square Leaf Landscaping And Design can provide you with an excellent looking Ipe Deck.

Composite Decking: A modern alternative to traditional wood decking, composite decking combines the beauty of natural wood with the durability and low maintenance of synthetic materials. Made from a blend of wood fibers and recycled plastics, composite decking is resistant to rot, fading, staining, and insects, making it an ideal choice for a long-lasting, beautiful deck with minimal upkeep. Available in a variety of colors and finishes, composite decking offers the aesthetic appeal of wood without the need for regular staining or sealing. Square Leaf Landscaping And Design offers expert composite deck installations, providing you with a sustainable, attractive outdoor living space in the Ontario area.

I first met Sean in summer 2022 when he was working on a neighbour's lawn and garden. After asking him if he had time to do a yard cleanup for us - he agreed to do so and came promptly within a couple of days. It was a big job, with excellent results, all at a reasonable rate. I then made a further request, that he design and build a pergola for my newly acquired wisteria plants to climb. Sean did an absolutely beautiful job in a timely manner, we couldn't be happier! My husband and I have asked him to come back to do more work for us this coming summer. I strongly recommend Sean and his team for creative landscaping and yardwork.

Maria Barnes March 18, 2023

I highly recommend Sean and Square Leaf Landscaping and Design to anyone seeking professional, reliable, and top-notch landscaping services. Sean has done many jobs in our neighbour - which is a testament to the high caliber of his work. He leaves the site clean and tidy from day to day. It is very clear he take pride in his work!! His commitment to customer satisfaction, attention to detail, and quick open communication makes this company an exceptional choice. I am incredibly satisfied with the outcome and will undoubtedly seek their services for any future landscaping needs.
