How to make decking non-slip — it is an issue likely to be on the minds of many people now that cooler, wetter weather has set in. Slippery decking is one of a number of issues that need to be addressed in our gardens during the cooler seasons, including protecting patio furniture and ensuring external woodwork remains in good condition.
