      Decking?! chortle!

      Decking is so noughties, or even nineties!

      Also it's as slippery as hell in the rain, and you don't know what nasties like rats are living under it.

        Yep, though the best way to deal with rats is just to make sure there's no source of food nearby.

        Getting rid of the compost heap seemed to send them packing .

          Indeed a nice stone terrace is far better

            A load of old engineering bricks from your local reclamation centre is what I'd go for.

              Not views that I share obviously.

              Though, I must confess, I looked at a place not far from Radstock recently and every property on the street had a satellite dish.

              Told me all I needed to know. I was out...
              No Virgin Media?

              If every property has a satellite dish, they all have Sky?

              As for the phrase "certain types". Enough said.

                Nope Indian Sandstone is £20 m so dirt cheap. Looks great.

                  It normally means a white van parked outside and a discarded old mattress lurking in the knee height vegetation they've never bothered to keep under control in the front garden.

                    Ah, you're one of those "certain types" aren't you?

                      They have that stuff at my local reclamation yard.

                      I was going to buy some but was made to feel like a war criminal as it is apparently quarried by 10 year old boys in loincloths.
