Decking question!

Hey guys im looking to start a small decking area in my garden and im hoping to have a curved edge to it and im just wondering what is the best way to clad the edge with?? Is it just some thin ply wood or is there more to it than that?? Would be grateful for any suggestions, thanks.

You can use composite trim board which is flexible or you can make relief cuts about every inch or on the back side of a 2x all the way around. The later method takes a lot of time and depending on the actually radius of the curve, it might not work.

COmposite fasha board would be the way to go, it comes 11 1/2" wide to cover up the whole rim joist and is only 3/8 thick so it will bend easy.
Use trim head screws to hold in place.
