Saligna Hardwood Decking

Also known as Sydney Blue Gum, Saligna is a popular timber with many uses.

Saligna is limited to smaller decking sizes and there will be a bit of movement in the species with some surface crazing. Sawed from farm lots & plantations in NZ. We strongly recommend coating Saligna to prolong its service life as well as reduce movement, shrinkage, and swelling.

Saligna is a light to dark pink colour and has a course texture.

Although not very common in New Zealand, coating your deck will extend its life. We recommend a minimum of one coat of a suitable exterior timber decking coating or oil be applied to all four sides plus cut ends of the decking prior to installation. Some species can be factory coated prior to delivery.



Annually cleaning your deck will help prolong its life, a light detergent that contains an anti-fungal agent is best.

Avoid using high pressure waterblasters or harsh chemicals.


Any coating or oil applied may require subsequent recoating. Refer to coating manufactures maintenance schedule.


Removing any items that will trap water underneath them (furniture, pot plants, etc.) for the duration of winter will extend the life of your deck and help keep it looking great.
