Composite boards. Composite boards, seen here, are engineered products that are a mixture of wood fibers and plastic; a lot of the material comes from recycled plastic grocery bags. Some companies use old shredded carpets for wood fillers. Newer composite boards are wrapped in a thin plastic
how the deck is framed with edging board
plastic layer so they won’t stain or fade. These are more expensive than wood boards but often come with a warranty of 20 to 25 years, are low maintenance and can be made to look almost identical to any species of wood out there. Plus, they stay the same color as the day you installed them

We needed a bridge to cross the dry creek bed, so I designed a version of a Japanese yatsuhashi, or zig zag, bridge. It is clad in concrete backer board. I wanted to simulate a granite mountain plateau with a boulder peak. The client purchased the concrete lantern which perfectly complements the entrance

Distance between posts, post size, and length of boards?
Can you tell me the distance between posts, post size, and length of boards (before installation). Thanks!
Love the fence, can you please share the dimensions/spacing of the horizontal boards?
This will be my first fence because it's beautiful and looks pretty easy and forgiving to build. Am I right about that?

I get heavy rain at times and need to consider water run off on my second floor wood decking.
judging from comments from my architect when discussing an ipe deck for our project…. pie is more expensive. It is also important to try and obtain it from sustainable sources.

We are doing a similar type of deck plan but the center boards vertical direction and the 2 ends. A border of 1 color and the rest going horizontal. I hope this makes sense. All our supports run 1 direction.

To my knowledge, there is no specific term in the Japanese language for the roof or coping over the fence.
thanks Jen bamboo is one of my favorite organic materials .
Could reinterpret this blackened japanstyle fence for northern climate with blackened wood middle rail, & blackend or golden-stained vertical boards. Hang or slot *replaceable/removable* bamboo panels along top half, &/or plant trellis panels (eg. along bottom half). For economy: 1) Lay out
Really pretty. Maybe not for my beach bungalow but still really cool.
