If next to no maintenance is your goal then composite decking is the choice for you. It is made from a mixture of wood chips or sawdust and recycled plastic. Because the material is defect free you can use every inch of it and the color change is even. It is possible to stain moat types after a few months and it will not rot, splinter or twist.
Spraying it off with a hose is all the maintenance required, so if you prefer to relax on your deck instead of work on it, this is the way to go.
