Not my choice, our client wanted the "so called no maintenance deck" this is a plastic/trex like deck it has a real faux looking wood grain but we did take advantage of the fact that it could touch soil.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Frank Organ added this to Garden Design Gets Down to Details
Decking can feel very stark in a garden layout due to the nature of the materials and the amount of space. This decking is considerably softened by raising each deck above the next and by edge planting grasses.
