    Does anybody have the solution to slippery decking when it is wet or the bad weather comes along?

    You can buy stick-on gritty strips for steps, if that helps.

    Mix some sand in with the decking treatment before applying to the wood

    A quick google of anti slip decking shows plenty of answers such as Hckson's anti slip paint and Blackfriars such as link below:-

    http://www.diytools.co.uk/diy/Main/...slip-decking-coating-treatment-2.5-litres.asp

    Anti slip strips as mentioned above are also listed for maybe steps or sloped areas

    No idea if they work but the principle is sound by creating a matt finish that should be less slippy thana the natural sheen on oiled decking

    I have used Hickson wood oil on hardwood decking before and it is excellent so the brand is good
