Wood decking boards are full of imperfections, so select the best quality that you can at the beginning. Try to avoid curved and cupped boards as much as possible, as well as knots on edges. If you have cupped boards (they're curved across the face looking from the end), then place the top of the curve up when setting the board in place.
