    Not wanting to hijack the thread, but may I ask what sealer you used? We had Indian sandstone laid this year and despite asking the landscapers several times what is best to seal it with, I've had no response.

    Most wooden decking needs frequent maintenance or it becomes unsightly and/or lethally slippery. When I had some, I had to cover it with rabbit netting before it injured someone.
