Mark for Tree Cuts
When decking boards approach each tree, use a jigsaw to cut them to the shape of the tree (Images 1 and 2). Secure and attach the boards with a drill and 2 1/2-inch decking screws (Image 3).
Clean and Stain Deck
Sweep and lightly wipe boards with a damp cloth or towel. Apply deck stain evenly with a roller handle, roller sleeve and extender pole. Allow approximately 1 hour between each coat for proper drying.
Add Finishing Touches
Add furniture to the deck once the stain is dry.
