Measuring up and Tips for Laying decking in Area That isn't Square

Postby Hswift2010 » Fri Apr 12, 2019 12:34 pm

Hi, I am wondering if anybody has some tips on laying decking. As my decking area isn’t square I am getting slightly confused how to measure up.
Hopefully you can see the picture, I would like to deck the highlighted area. The bottom edge measures at 6.4m, top edge 6.6m, left 4.4m and right side 3m.

What size lengths would you use and would you lay decking in the direction left to right or top to bottom?

Thanks in advance, Harry
