Wood decking - Beautiful work! Do you have any recommendations for an imitation wood decking? I love this look, but worry about fading and maintenance. I live in southern california.

Sorry, I'm not fond of the performance of synthetic materials so I tend not to use them. This is in San Diego, it's a somewhat coastal project. The natural materials I use for this region have to be extremely durable so I tend to specify Ipe or Mangaris wood. Very durable, fire/pest resistant with very little maintenance.

Hello Richard, I am about to order some corten planters and wanted to know what specification do you give the fabricator for the thickened edge?

It depends upon your budget, your steel fabricators capabilities, and what design/style your after. I've used thick Corten or I've had the fabricator roll/bend the top edge or have them box the top with flat bar or rectangle box to give it a thick look.
