Replacing the decking

Post by flowopowo »

I'm doing some garden decking and I need some advice on how to remove the old one. My old deck started to rot, so I had to replace it. I invested more money and got really cool amber larch charred wood from * I know that it is resistant to rot, so I hope it won't let me down. Do you know any tips on how to remove the old decking nicely, without leaving any prints?

Get a big hammer to it and smash it to bits. Then hire a skip to take it away.

Do you think it is safe? I want to do everything nicely without leaving any "footprints" :-D

Yes, it is safe. Decking doesn't have feet, there will be no footprints. Your link has been removed by the way.
