Consider Both Patio and Decking Garden Design
In areas in the garden where pests seem to conjugate it would be a great idea to install patio into this area of the garden as it is impossible for them to eat through it. If you laid wood decking in this area of the garden however, it would quickly be eaten by these pesky animals. This does not stop you from considering wooden decking in other areas of your garden, away from where these animals are attracted to. For example often pests are attracted to wood piles therefore it would be a sensible idea to lay patio in these areas so that the pests cannot damage the wooden decking.
Weather is also a good example of where both patio and wooden decking would be a sensible option. If you are in an area that experiences heavy rain fall or extreme weather then paving will be unaffected regardless whereas wooden decking can get damaged very quickly. If you build your wooden decking in sheltered areas or create shelter for them then they can remain undamaged by the elements.
