    Tough one. Perhaps leave it exposed and end the decking at the right of it. Is that an option.

    Also have the council given permission to add decking?

    Thanks for. Reply Yeah we thought of leaving the ramp exposed but it’s bit of an eyesore I think not asked council about decking to be honest

    You can't cover it all as it would be higher than than the door threshold. What about finishing it part way up the ramp at the same level as the threshold. There'll be just a bit of ramp showing near the top that way.

    I'd go with this suggestion, and clean up the ramp with Jeyes fluid.
    The ramp has a nice, sharp edge, and if properly clean, could make a nice contrast with well-laid decking.
