Pick Mixed Hardwood For Your Next Decking Project
The Mixed Hardwood Decking is a combination of mainly 3 types of wood species. They are “Ironbark”, “Spotted Gum” & “Red Gum”, which makes this deck a very strong and durable decking board.
Not only are these hardwood resilient to heavy foot traffic but if you decide to choose a hardwood deck that has mixed timbers, then be confident in the fact, that if you maintain it correctly, this flooring will last a long time.
Selected Mix Hardwood Types
Ironbark is the most durable decking board in the Australian. The colours can range from reds to browns within the different species. A very hard wood.
The word “spotted” refers to the soft mottled colour caused by weathering of the outer tree as it sheds elliptical strips of bark. This colour varies from pale greybrowns and soft creams to a rich chocolate brown. A very tough hardwood, its frequent wavy grain can produce an attractive and highly valued fiddleback effect. Makes for a very beautiful floor all by its own.
River Red Gum
The hardwood of the iconic River Red Gum has a reputation for durability, strength and for its distinctive brilliant red colouring ranging from pink to almost black. A highly prized flooring wood.
As with any flooring product maintaining and taking care of the timber is very important. If you apply a good protective coat to these timbers and keep it clean, then you will not only have a deck that will look beautiful but it will be around for a long time.
A mixed hardwood deck is a good option for those who are on a tight budget, as spreading the cost over three different wood can reduce the overall deck cost. You also benefit of having the different timber features, colours and patterns of the three woods
