    Just wondered if anyone had any tips for either stopping my wooden decking icing over or for how to cope when it does?

    Thanks

    Wire mesh; you'll find it on all the best boat mooring jetties but it won't look very nice on your smart decking :LOL: Why would you want to walk on it when it's all iced up & freezing cold out there :confused:

    BTW, I wouldn't put salt on it as it'll bleach the timber & look naff next summer.

    decking in this damp country is a bad idea
