2. The below is an excellent job of mixing different cladding and decking materials to create an outstanding result. The dark cladding allows the colour of the larch to pop. We would recommend using a painted decking area as opposed to a charred material, due to it potentially flaking when walked on. Discover our painted decking range here.
