It is wise to have a protective sealant brushed on your wood before the harsh winter/summer set in. If your deck gets a lot of sun exposure, consider using a wood sealant that has a UV protection agents inside
sealant are better for a shine. Wood stains that have a water sealer and UV protections are better for changing the color of the wood. To protect wood decks or other structures exposed to severe heat and sun exposure, use an acrylic stain with transparent iron oxide or opaque pigments

What material was used for the rolling hot tub cover/deck?
consider building a deck platform around the spa, allowing a rolling cover to slide easily underneath. When the spa is not in use, its cover simply becomes part of the deck.

Imagine how stark this facade would look without this beautiful tree? Building a deck to surround an existing tree is a classic strategy to create liveable space without sacrificing shade and beauty.
Check out formed concrete from "2stone Designer Concrete". Use formed concrete like this for deck walls?
