We have two gumtrees over a largish deck - 10 x 4 m with 120mm Merbau. I had 80mm before it was redone. The gumnuts and sticks and leaves are a total pain! The trees are nice but all year they make a mess. Tannin is another issue requiring constant cleaning.
Been thinking of a sealing strip to keep out the crap so I can blow it off at least and not have to scrap out the gaps which are about 3mm wide. The gaps run away from the house.
Is this a good or bad idea?
