Hey Jacob! In regards to your post I suggest you go for foxtails and christmas palms because they are self cleaning. If you water and fertilize them regularly they will grow beautifully and be great for your deck. As far as what deck to go for I would personally choose an exotic hardwood deck because not only will it look great but is said to last up to 40 years. It really all depends on what is your preference on appearance. Hope I was able to help out! Good luck to you!

Default Trying to help jacob find the perfect decking and palms

Whats going on Jacob. When it comes to decking you should do some research on Vinyl decking. Its really nice and it just makes it look so much nicer. As far as palms go I would put some really nice windmill palms. I actually just ordered some online and received them a couple of weeks back and they made my pool side look absolutely stunning. Just giving my two cents. Hope everything turns out well.

Default What palm trees to use in decking

I would definitely go and try putting some date palms. They always seem to make everything look much nicer. Its my personal fave and has definitely made my backyard look stunning.
