    In 2015 we decided to fence the property off.

    I just wanted concrete posts and concrete gravel boards doing with a nice piece of panel fencing put in and while we was out pricing up the fencing...we saw some new designed decking but on the other side was log affect, which is used for doing log cabins and also putting around normal sheds to take that affect but what we like about it over all, is it still looks nice from the other side.


    So I thought I would share the idea with members
    :)

                  Very nice :dbgrtmb:
                  Did you stain the bits where the concrete touches the wood as there will be a water trap there
