Default Stain Fading

I have a deck surface that I am staining this month. The owner is complaining about having to apply stain every two years. It fades quickly once applied, it only looks nice for 6 months after application. Any advice on prep work to help the stain finish last longer?

Use a better stain after proper prep.

There is no answer. Horizontal exterior surfaces have to be maintained every two years no matter what product you use. Ironically, the longer the "warranty" on the can, the less time they actually hold up. A good quality oil applied after proper cleaning and pH balancing will look good and will require a simple maintenance clean and recoat every couple of years.
