Looks nice.

When I worked construction we'd apply stain and sealer to decks and fences with a pump up garden sprayer. You need to watch for wind and mask things to protect from over-spray. But it puts on a nice even coat and you don't waste near as much. It also goes very quickly. We would spray an area and then brush it in with a big 4" paint brush (smaller to to get in tight spots) and also sometimes would back roll it with a roller to help even out and push it into the grain.

Default Very timely!

This comes at a very good timing for us. We're just working on staining/sealing the deck at our new cabin. Thanks for the useful tips.
