Custom Cedar Deck, Fence and Privacy Wall Construction
We design and build outdoor structures using Western Red Cedar.
The natural wood look is very popular and if you love the look, feel, and smell of natural wood, a cedar deck might be the choice for you. Western Red Cedar is an excellent wood for outdoor construction such as decks, fences, and privacy walls.
Cedar is soft and easy for carpenters to work with. Cedar doesn’t readily absorb moisture as other woods can and moisture is the leading cause of twisting, splitting and warping of deck boards. Cedar has a tendancy to want to lie flat and straight, especially if the wood has been chosen with care.
Alan’s Landscaping and Heather’s Gardens is a family owned and operated landscape design/build company based out of Ottawa, ON. We specialize in the design and construction of custom Western Red Cedar wood decks. Whether you want a simple square or rectangle cedar deck to enjoy the backyard or a very large complex, multi-level or irregular shaped deck with provisions for power, water and an outdoor cooking area, the team at ALHG can bring your deck vision to life!

Maintaining Your New Cedar Deck
Cedar has a beautiful natural color with the heartwood (center) of the tree taking on a reddish hue. The colors of cedar can be accentuated using proper finishing techniques and stain if you so wish. Cedar decks, while beautiful, do require a certain level of upkeep in order to keep them looking great. Your cedar deck will need to be thoroughly cleaned (very gently with a pressure washer and a good scrub) but it will also need to be resealed or restained at least every other year, especially with our harsh winter weather.
