Carpentry and joinery would be your best bet, after all decking is a carpenters job. Although im sure there are landscape gardeners that will do this type of work.
Hope this helps Clive ..

hi there steve it is classed as landscaping my friend and as it goes is what i happen to have 14 years experiance at along with fencing ,landscaping,gate making shed building ect ect but their alot of cowboys out their and very few customer caring trades men so make so they do your decking correctly starting with all stud posts aleast a foot in the ground ,prefferabley use 100x100 posts and 3x2 rails then cut mypex around them to the area of your decking and when they apply your frame work and deck boards make shaw they use all screws (no nails) and the deck boards should be double screwed where ever they cross a rail ie frame work other wise when the summer comes they will buckle up . if like take a look at my profile their pictures on their of some decking i recently finnished and what the customer gave me for doing the job right

Hello Steven,

you should post it as a Carpentry and Joinery work, but anyway, you would not go wrong with any of them. Cheers!
