Deck Out Your Backyard & Have a Ball!

            For any homeowner looking to add a unique element of style and durability to their home, look no further than wood deck patios. Wood deck patios are a great way to create a beautiful outdoor living space while still maintaining the classic charm of wood or the modern resilience of composite materials.
            Wood deck patios add an elegant, timeless appeal to any outdoor area, making them perfect for enhancing any front or backyard. They’re also naturally resistant to insects and durable in most weather conditions, so you don’t have to worry about maintenance when it comes time for warmer days! Wood deck boards are a popular choice for their durability and natural appeal.
            Composite decks on the other hand offer incredible strength and resistance to wear and tear—ideal for homeowners who want something they can rely on as well as keep clean with minimal effort. Both types, wood deck patios and composite decks, can be tailored easily to fit any shape or size of patio, decking, or even yard. For larger outdoor spaces, a gazebo can be a great addition. A building permit may be required for the deck project.

Listen to what our raving customers have to say about working with Bret-Mar Landscaping!

We have worked with Bret-Mar landscape for several of the projects in our yard and their work is top-notch. The entire team and crew at Bret-Mar goes above and beyond in their attention to detail, professionalism, communication & care throughout the project, as well as ensuring the scope (and price) of the project is honored and maintained throughout. Our yard has become a feature of our property and we are so grateful that Bret-Mar brought our vision to life.

I have used Bret-Mar exclusively over the last 25 years. They have never disappointed me. I have had them work in both my front and back yard, designing and planting flowers, shrubs, and trees. They have put in a brick paver walkway outside the front of the house, and worked very hard and creatively to make my dream of having a waterfall and pond in my backyard become a reality. My backyard is my sanctuary and Sharon and Ashley need to take a lot of credit for this.

Bret-Mar just completed landscaping for our home. This is the second home they have done for us. They have the best, most hard working employees. Sharon did our design which we are very happy with. The employees who came out to do the job were very accommodating, very knowledgeable, and answered my many questions. They even encourage you to contact them with any questions that may come up in the future. I would definitely recommend them!

Wood & Composite Decking FAQs

What is composite wood?2024-01-15T23:23:07+00:00

Composite wood, or composite decking, is made from recycled wood fibers (like sawdust) and plastic or vinyl materials.

It is designed to mimic the look and feel of natural wood while offering enhanced durability and low maintenance.

Composite wood is highly resistant to rotting, warping, splintering, and insect damage.

It doesn’t require regular staining or sealing, making it an attractive option for homeowners looking for long-lasting, easy-to-maintain decking material.

How to clean composite decks?2024-01-15T23:22:06+00:00

Cleaning composite decks is relatively easy. Here’s a basic process:

  1. Start by removing loose debris using a broom or leaf blower.
  2. Mix warm water with mild soap or composite deck cleaner according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
  3. Use a soft-bristle brush or sponge mop to scrub the surface in small sections.
  4. Rinse thoroughly with water to remove any residue from cleaning solutions.
  5. For tougher stains or mold/mildew, specialized composite deck cleaners or mildew removers may be required. Follow the product instructions carefully and consider seeking professional assistance if needed.
