2008 post:***This deck is located near East Cliff in Santa Cruz. The wood is probably about 15 years old and still looking great. The key is annual deck maintenance! We took over the maintenance in 2003 after years of neglect. These pictures also demonstrate how transparent stains allow the true grain of the wood to reveal itself.Â This is Biowash Natural Deck Oil (redw tone) and I believe it is still a little bit wet.
Update 2021: I promise this deck still looks like what is shown in pics, coming up on 30 y/o
