One of the keys is careful preparation. The wood pretty much has to be stripped down to look new to get the max out of decking stain. I get about 7-8 years out of standard decking stain if I do that, 1 or 2 if I don't - so really worth the effort and the cost of supplies.
The middle path - everything in moderation, and everything in its time and order.
