Garden Decking Designs for You

Benefits of Using Garden Decking

Smart, stylish and usually maintenance-free, garden decking makes a wonderful addition to any outdoor area. Viewed as far more attractive and luxurious than paving, decking is a great way to extend your living space and increase the value of your home.

The case for garden decking, therefore, is clear, but once you’ve decided to install it, you’ll need to choose the best type of decking for your outdoor space.

The Right Garden Decking for You

Your decision should not only take account of your preferred decking design, but also the decked area’s location, your budget and the expected level of usage.

So, let’s take a look at the merits of the different types of garden decking available to you.

Types of Garden Decking

Wooden Decking Boards

Wooden decking boards are our best-selling decking supplies.

They are a great all-rounder, represent excellent value for money and have an incredibly attractive appearance.

Our premium wooden decking boards are all built from slow-grown, kiln-dried timber, which will never twist or warp.

Afterwards, they are pressure-treated to guard against rot and backed by a 10 or 15-year guarantee.

Decking Tiles

Decking tiles come with their own integral framework, so you can lay them directly onto concrete or grass, with minimal fuss, although we do advise using timber joists or deck bearers to ensure your wood deck’s longevity.

Our decking tiles are also made from pressure-treated timber and backed by a 15-year anti-rot guarantee.

As decking tiles are smaller than boards, they are more convenient to use in confined spaces, for example on a roof terrace.

Composite Decking

Composite decking is made from a combination of wood and resin, making it exceptionally durable and even lower-maintenance than wooden decking.

Furthermore, composite decking boards are completely UV-protected, so will never fade or discolour in the sun, whilst their non-slip qualities make them an excellent choice for decked areas near swimming pools.

Our composite decking boards are available in either brown or anthracite, and supplied with a 10-year guarantee.

As a result of its many benefits, composite decking is the most expensive type of decking that we stock.
