I plan a decking path across a very damp lawn. I will be improving on Monty's plan:
1 Use tanalised ridged timbers for the treads, extra treated with a silicon water shedding product.
2 Open out a roll of chicken wire along the patch and secure with staples. Non-slip guarantee.
3 Ensure a slight fall from one side of treads to the other to allow drainage.
4 Keep up a regular maintenance of brushing leaves and soil from the treads to prevent build-up of detritus that would encourage moss.
