Sometimes, the subtle details are among a home’s most important—especially when it comes to our outdoor spaces. Come summer, some of our most treasured memories are made on the dock, deck, or terrace. At Trex, enhancing these moments is a guiding principle. For nearly thirty years, the composite decking and outdoor living company has created the finest wood-alternative decking on the market, as well as a slew of other innovations that have redefined the backyard.
An industry pioneer, Trex creates composite decking that promises a bevy of advantages for homeowners. While a typical wood deck requires seasonal painting, staining, or sealing to avoid splintering or rotting, Trex materials need only the occasional power wash to keep them in shape. Maintenance aside, Trex decking also presents a green alternative to traditional lumber. The composite decking is made with 95 percent recycled and reclaimed materials (including plastic film and industrial scrap wood); last year, the brand recycled more than nine hundred million pounds. On average, a five-hundred-square-foot Trex deck can contain as many as 140,000 recycled plastic bags, making a positive environmental impact in customers’ backyards.

Summer on Deck
For Trex, innovation doesn’t end with the deck. Rounding out its offerings, the brand also has three complementary railing lines, a pergola collection, open-air kitchen and furniture options, and a robust outdoor lighting collection. Together, the products help customers create a stylish space where kicking back is easy—whether that means enjoying a cocktail at golden hour, entertaining friends and family, or manning the grill while the kids run wild.
Rob and Lydia Mondavi, fourth-generation members of the famed Robert Mondavi Winery family, are among the countless customers who looked to Trex when bringing their ideal home to life. In Beaufort, South Carolina, the Mondavis’ vacation retreat is heavily influenced by its Lowcountry setting, drawing inspiration from the area’s tradition of clean, coastal design. “We wanted everything to blend in with the natural elements of the oceanside surroundings,” Lydia says. “Trex Transcend decking in Island Mist was perfect because it looks just like driftwood. The anti-splinter factor was also important to us, especially with two young sons.”

The family was also drawn to the company for its environmental consciousness—something Mondavi brands have always valued in their own work. “Trex’s green practices really stood out as the main differentiator,” Lydia says of the selection process. “The fact that the decking is made from ninety-five percent recycled materials fell right into our family philosophy,” Rob adds. To complete their outdoor retreat, the Mondavis also employed the brand’s outdoor lighting along the dock, illuminating the way for incoming vessels when dusk sets in. “That’s been great from a functional perspective—coming in from the boat, we have a safe and beautifully lit path home,” Lydia says.
As your own summer dreams come into focus, adding a composite deck can guarantee years of fun in the sun.
The emerging Alys Beach Town Center continues to grow as construction begins on the Della condominiums. Designed by architects Moule & Polyzoides of Pasadena, California, the Della is largely Bermudian and Antiguan in character, also drawing on the romance of British and Venetian turn-of-the-century resorts. The Della will offer twenty total residences: four three-bedroom condominiums, five two-bedroom plus bunk condominiums, and eleven two-bedroom condominiums.
