The wooden grating
The wooden slatted terraces are the result of the assembly of several slabs made of wood slats that come in different thicknesses and colors. These are attached to cleats by screwing or gluing with necessary spacing so that the water can flow freely in case of rain.
The grating makes it possible to create a beautiful terrace but it can also be used for the realization of a garden path or to personalize the development of a swimming pool. It is a very solid material, even rot-proof. It requires a minimum of maintenance. Just use a high-pressure cleaner once every year and you're done.

Wooden gratings are usually square shape but it is also possible to find models of hexagonal shape. They are set up on a very stable and flat ground. Soil preparation is a crucial step that often requires the intervention of a professional. The installation of the wooden slatted terraces consists in nesting the slabs between them. The installation can be done in a homogeneous way or by taking into account particular and more original motifs and designs.
