While deck construction is not a service we offer, and really has nothing to do with lawn care, we were recently emailed about a blog article posted at www.lawncareservice.net with details on how to build a deck that lasts. After reading the article, we have decided to share it with our viewers so it may benefit you as well.

We are not going to share all the details and descriptions of the ingredients here, as the post is not originally ours. However you can view the entire article here http://www.lawncareservice.net/blog/2011/10-ways-to-build-a-deck-that-lasts/
