Ah, there’s nothing better than relaxing by your pool in the warmth of the sun. Whether you’re kicking back poolside with a cold drink in your hand, hosting a pool party for your child’s birthday, or swimming laps for some exercise, having a safe, durable pool deck is an absolute must. That’s why it’s important to choose the right material to surround your pool.
ModWood is an eco-friendly wood-plastic composite (WPC) decking made from recycled milk bottles and wood waste. Not only is it beautiful in appearance—it offers countless other benefits that make it an ideal material for building your pool deck.

5 Incredible Benefits of Using ModWood Composite Decking for Your Pool Area
1. It’s safer for your family
It’s very important to choose a material with a high slip resistance to surround your pool, especially if you have little ones running around. While no decking material can claim to be 100 percent slip-proof, ModWood composite decking has a fully embossed surface to increase slip resistance, granting it an R11 commercial slip resistance rating. The decking is also reversible, offering a smooth side and a textured side, adding an option for increased slip resistance. The wood-plastic composite also doesn’t splinter like traditional timber decking. Say goodbye to painful splinters!
To top it off, ModWood is non-toxic—no harmful chemicals are used in the manufacturing process, which makes it a safe choice for your whole family.
2. It’s low maintenance
When it comes to selecting a low-maintenance material for your pool deck, it doesn’t get better than ModWood wood plastic composite. Unlike traditional timber decks, ModWood doesn’t require staining, oiling, painting, or other ongoing maintenance. That’s right—it requires zero preservative maintenance! Washing it down with soap and water a couple of times a year is sufficient to keep it in tip-top condition. That’s a lot of time, money, and energy saved! Also, it won’t splinter, rot, or warp, and it’s termite resistant.
3. It’s durable and long-lasting
Since WPC decking is a hybrid of wood and plastic, it possesses the strengths of both materials. ModWood composite decking has a much longer lifespan than traditional timber decking due to the added durability from the recycled plastic component. Thanks to its lower wood content, it’s also more resistant to corrosion, moisture, rotting, decay, termites, and mildew.
Modwood is the only WPC composite decking manufactured “down under” with our unique UV climate in mind. It’s specifically designed to withstand our harsh conditions and has been proven to do so.
4. It has a beautiful, high-end appearance
If you’ve ever seen ModWood composite decking in person, this point won’t need much explaining, but for those of you who haven’t, let us tell you a bit about its striking appearance.
With a natural timber finish and clean straight lines, ModWood offers a sleek, stylish design that blends beautifully with any architectural style. It’s available in eight natural-looking colours that will complement any outdoor area and last for many years to come. As mentioned above, it’s very durable and resistant to extreme weather so it won’t twist, bend, or warp.
5. It’s eco-friendly
Made from recycled milk bottles and wood waste, ModWood WPC decking is a great choice for those looking to lessen their environmental footprint. By using materials that would otherwise be sent to landfills, ModWood gives these materials new life and ensures that no new trees are cut to produce the decking. In addition, wood-plastic composites melt at lower temperatures than pure plastics, which reduces energy use.
Choose ModWood for your pool decking
Traditional timber decking simply can’t match ModWood’s outstanding performance characteristics, versatile nature, and trendy, sleek appearance. ModWood WPC decking adds both aesthetic and functional value to your home and will save you money in the long-term compared to a traditional timber deck.
