Softwood vs Hardwood Decking

It is important to note that soft and hardwood timber are distinguished in nature in terms of their reproduction rather than their end appearance and attributes.

Hardwood comes from broad-leaved trees such as Red Gum, Spotted Gum, Ironbark and Merbau etc. Softwood is harvested from trees that produce cones and seeds such as pines and cedars. 

Hardwood is considered to be the most versatile construction material. Applications range from gorgeous furniture, musical instruments, flooring, construction and boatbuilding. It is a material of durability and beauty. It is available in countless combinations of species, specifications and colours. 

As a result of their slow growth and their condensed, more complex structure, hardwoods offer a superior level of strength and durability.

Hardwood timber tends to be more resilient than softwoods and is reserved for projects that require maximum durability. They are often used for construction projects that rely on strength and durability, such as flooring, fencing, decking and high-quality furniture. 

Softwood is renowned for its versatility and strength.  This timber has a large variety of applications and a known for their aesthetic appeal. Softwood can be used across for both internal and external projects – from furniture and flooring to decking, landscaping and structural applications.

They are a flexible timber and are lighter in weight and less dense than most hardwoods. Softwoods are most commonly used for interior mouldings, windows production and generating sheet materials such as plywood. Softwood is best utilised on doors, windows, ceilings and furniture.
